In this offbeat western, Robert Mitchum plays Father Oliver Van Horne. Van Horne happens to be a hard drinking, machine gun toting, and roadster driving priest who winds up helping a revolution south of the border.
There’s also an Irish bootlegger, a mute Indian girl, and a fat Englishman along for the ride. Oh and Frank Langella plays the loquacious foppish villain whose mother is played by...Rita Hayworth?!?!?
The Wrath of God is something of an anachronism for a 1970s release. Almost as if it was a shelved script for Humphrey Bogart that was forgotten thirty years prior, but then dusted off again.
Is it a great movie? No but it’s fun to watch. There’s fights, car chases, and lots of humor. Mitchum is good in this as the unconventional priest.
