Father Kino's Story Gets Massacred! *
10 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Absolutely dreadful picture even with a stellar cast. The picture is confusing, dull, misguided and told almost in documentary style.

Father Kino, Richard Egan, loses his mission in California and soon becomes involved in an Indian rampage. The Apaches are at it but the Spanish soldiers are blazing away at any Indian tribe they encounter, even Christian Indians!

When the head of this murderous expedition is ambushed, he suddenly realizes what he has been doing and changes his ways. You've never seen such a quick change of behavior. Rory Calhoun is supposed to be a Spanish soldier. He stands there like a statue in his scenes. It appears that priest John Ireland will be evil and then he is out of the film. This is a totally unworthy film for the high caliber cast in it. The writing is for the birds.
