An engrossing adaptation from James Michener's epic novel about a couple of missionaries attempting to convert a tribe of native Hawaiians to Christianity. Max Von Sydow and Julie Andrews play the missionaries quite well. This film is full of material that runs over three hours and will surely please history lovers. Others, however, may not get much out of this flick. The scenery is grandiose! See this if you think you might like it. Followed by a lesser sequel, "The Hawaiians."
