The Wrath of God

The Wrath of God is a good solid action-adventure film, starring Robert Mitchum as a renegade priest who frees a Latin-American town of fear and terror during a rebellion of the 1920 era. Ralph Nelson's film has hard action, offsetting character-comedy relief, excellent production, and an outstanding cast of principals.

Ralph Nelson’s film has hard action, offsetting character-comedy relief, excellent production, and an outstanding cast of principals.

James Graham’s novel has been adapted by Nelson into a screenplay which, apart from some sporadic dialog cliche, neatly establishes and steadily develops a set of constantly-interesting characters.

With Victor Buono and Ken Hutchison, both outstanding as likeable freebooters and soldiers of fortune, Mitchum is forced by army colonel John Colicos to attempt the assassination of Langella, who rules his mountain retreat with vicious authority, largely implemented by Gregory Sierra.
