Saw this at the drive-in when it first came out and remembered it as being a somewhat sub-standard Western, kind of a Spaghetti Western/Sam Peckinpah wannabe, and though that may be true, THE WRATH OF GOD does have a few slight merits of it's own.

First is Robert Mitchum's performance as the sleepy-eyed priest who mows 'em down Django-fashion with a hidden machine gun. He scoffs the Lord, swears, drinks whiskey, smokes cigars and kills. Back then, I thought it just a ruse, now, I'm not too sure. Is he taking this "Fatherhood" seriously, or is it all just part of the scam? Certainly one of Mitchum's best roles, though not nearly as great as his other heavenly outing in NIGHT OF THE HUNTER. Still, food for thought.

Secondly, Victor Buono finally gets to play a somewhat good-guy, or at least be on Mitchum's side. He's a likable lout in the George Sanders fashion, a con man who is always looking out for himself, yet leads a courageous attack on the enemy stronghold, driving a battering-ram car while machine-gunning the fodder that stands in his way. He actually has voice-over thoughts to justify his actions.

And thirdly, we get some social comment throughout the film on third-world oppression. Executions are abundant and viewed with disgust. The masses are left with no meaning to life..., that is until Mitchum rebuilds the church and gives strength, support and dignity to the downtrodden, then defends it all with a machine gun.

Strange, weird.

Rita Hayworth is wasted as the mother of Frank Langella, who likes to kill priests.

I don't think they make tourers like that big red one with Robert Mitchum driving.... no matter what terraine.
I very much liked the role he played and reaction to the varying situation caused by the villans..... I would recommend this movie to people who like action and an interesting storyline.. as you now know I really go for Robert Mitchum's movies..... his versatility with role playing is excellent. regards Movie Junky

I saw this movie at the theater in the seventies and hoped that one day it would be available on DVD. Mitchum is terrific as the gun toting "preacher" Frank Langella is his usual smarmy self. Not listed in the Amazon cast list is Rita Hayworth. This may have been one of her last movie roles and it was sad seeing her in the condition that she was in.

I saw "The Wrath of God" in the theatre in Minneapolis in the summer of 1972 and had never forgotten it. I always desired to see it again and was very happy with I found it on DVD. Highly recommended.

What starts off as a promising flick, turns in the end, to be an insipidly idiotic premise. Three guys bring down a bunch of outlaws that can't be brought down by an army? Okay. Still, take a look at it for its nice set locations.
