Movie Info

The Brazilian Antonio Das Mortes casts Mauricio De Valle as a mercenary peacekeeper. Agreeing to hunt down and kill rebel soldiers, the mercenary becomes increasingly drawn to the rebel's cause. His 11th-hour turnaround does not prevent the film from ending in a bloodbath. Antonio das Mortes unabashedly casts its lot with such insurgents as Che Guevara. As such, this 1968 film had difficulty finding an American distributor until two years later. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for O Dragão da Maldade contra o Santo Guerreiro (Antonio das Mortes)

hallucinogenic western at it's best, a kind of sequel to 'black god, white devil'

rubystevens
Stella Dallas

Super Reviewer

There is virtually nothing in this film that had not been told before in Rocha's most iconoclastic films. It feels contrived, confusing, dull and repetitious, proving to be a real test of endurance for the viewer - even with many evocative shots and mesmerizing tableaux.

Carlos Magalhães

Super Reviewer

Weird, unique, somewhat boring. More of a cult movie or an important piece in the time line of South American cinema than truly a good film.
