I was pleasantly surprised when I watched this movie because I was expecting something like "Love Comes Softly" and this series left that in the dust! The quality is very good and the actors fit there parts very well!!!! The Canadian scenery is beautiful and the sets very well done! You will also appreciate this first movie more as you watch the following movies and get to know its characters better! I would definitely recommend this movie!
My family was eager to watch this movie hoping that it would be a continuation of the first When Calls the Heart movie.
This movie begins with a retelling of the end of the movie When Calls the Heart. However it has some major differences which was a keen disappointment because it was those very things that made us want to watch it so badly.
Several of the actors have changed.
All in all, it was an enjoyable family video but we had to disconnect from the first one. I am giving it three stars because of this. If it was independent of the other movie I would have given it four.
After watching the When Calls the Heart movie, I wanted to view the TV series. This DVD contains episodes 1 and 2 as aired on TV, but they are blended together into one long episode of 87 minutes. For those who have seen the show on TV, there are a few additions and subtractions from what was aired. A bonus item is an interview with 2 executive producers and Janette Oke, author of the book When Calls the Heart. The DVD is excellent and the program is packed with drama, romance and faith. I am looking forward to future DVDs in this series.
