The Mission

"OK"

The Mission Review


Roland Joffé's historical effort is all eye candy, no soul. But what eye candy it is! This star-studded endeavor is unfortunately muddy, telling the story of the religion-and-slavery-tinged war of Spain vs. Portugal vs. natives in 1750s South America. The movie eventually picks up steam but leaves the cast behind; performances by Jeremy Irons and Robert De Niro are alternately great and stilted.
