Historical Epic
21 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A dramatic and powerful epic about Eusebio Francisco Kino, better known as Padre Kino. In his fight to explore the New World, Kino came into conflict with the Catholic Church, Spanish soldiers, Indians and nature itself. Kino's accomplishments due to his strength, endurance and ability to overcome obstacles made him a legend in his own time. An extraordinary film that should not be missed.

(From the back of the DVD)

Excellent acting and production values, if not quite as riveting as Jerico, an earlier film with a similar subject. Fans of The Mission or The End of the Spear or Dances With Wolves will enjoy Kino.
