A very pleasant surprise, Day of Wrath brings to the screen the story of a sheriff in a small Spanish town as he tries to get to the bottom of an ongoing series of brutal and highly mysterious murders.

The setting is Spain in 1542 and a small town sheriff, recently back from Antwerp in the Spanish Netherlands, finds himself at a loss when confronted with several murders that no one seems to acknowledge, not even the victims' spouses! Little does he know that he is in the middle of an intriguing civil war...

Christopher Lambert, and the rest of the cast carry out their performances very well.

Blanca Marsillach was delightful as Carmen de Jaramillo; let's see more of her...

Very well written and very well presented, the movie is one that can be watched over and over again.

The setting, the plot, the costumes, and the music are all wonderful, though the battle sequences could have been better.

In short, Day of Wrath is a movie definitely worth watching, as it will surely provide for an evening's entertainment!

This medieval mystery has many twists, so pay close attention to the details. It's an excellent spell-binder that trots along at a fast pace with plenty of suspense. 'Who done it and why' is the big question when royals suddenly drop dead during the night due to some nasty wounds and various letters of the alphabet carved into their flesh. Before the befuddled sheriff can get a witness, the bodies disappear! Is the sheriff drinking too much and imagining all the blood and guts, or is there a conspiracy involving a secret list of names? Excellent movie!

I found this movie in the cut-out bin at the local video store. When I asked the clerk about it, he didn't know anything about it or anyone who had ever watched it. I've semi-followed Christopher Lambert over the years, from "Greystoke...Tarzan" to "Highlander" to now. I especially enjoy that "Highlander" still holds up pretty well over the years.

"Day of Wrath" is a very nice little detective-costume drama-action movie. Lambert is the sheriff of a Spanish village who investigate the murders of local nobles/aristocrats. Why are they being murdered and why does no one seem to care? Set in Spain during the Inquisition, the movie explores power, intimidation, apathy, loyalty, and acquiescence to corruption. What is the greater good? To whom do we owe our loyalty and duty? "Day of Wrath" examines how we choose to live our lives and what choices we make when faced with these situations, and what are the consequences of our decisions.

This is an enjoyable and satisfying movie if you pay attention and follow the plot. If you have a short attention span, or if you want the plot spoon-fed to you, or if you want non-stop action without a plot, then I would suggest you pass this by. Continue to enjoy your movies written by screenwriters who do not understand pacing and timing, and who were schooled in the "throw-everything-out-there-at-once, some-of-it-should-stick-to-the-wall technique.

I'm a sucker for movies such as, L.A. Confidential, The Usual Suspects, The Name of the Rose, Memento, and Enigma - movies that take their time and make you think. But, I also enjoy little known movies such as Mumford, Ginger Snaps, The Yakuza (w/ Mitchum), Wanda Nevada, Irma Vep - movies that are gems with interesting plots, paced story lines and good actors.

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. Good acting, fairly good plot. I reminded me of an extended flashback as seen in the Highlander TV series.

Overall I liked the movie. I rate it three and a half. It is not his best film, but it covers and aspect of history not covered in any other film that I am aware of. It tells the story of how the Jews had to change religions and their names to survive during the Spanish Inquisition. It has a little too much nudity, which I didn't expect. And, a little too much gratuitous violence. However, I liked it enough to watch it more than once.

This movie is a great suggestion for history buffs. It is a real story of the life of the Jewish in Spain during the Inquisition. It seems that those who survived, did so because they pretended to convert to Catholicism, while secretly remaining true to their own faith. A realistic picture of how so many perished at the hands of the church, in the name of God and religion, this tale has a surprise revelation at the end. Day of Wrath is the kind of movie you will think about long after the credits roll at the end.

I liked this DVD very much, as it delved into a period in history of which I had no previous knoweledge. The acting was very good overall, despite Christopher Lambert's rather wooden characterization. It was more interesting than entertaining, even though I did enjoy it. Even though it is historical, it is also a bit of a mystery. I recommend it to thosse who like the unusual.
