Nel 1750 il capitano Mendoza, mercenario e mercante di schiavi, dopo aver ucciso il fratello in duello si fa gesuita, va in una missione del Sudamerica, riprende la spada per difenderla da una spedizione militare. Cinema spettacolare ad alto livello che ha tutte le carte per piacere a pubblico e critica: nobili temi e forti conflitti drammatici, una star (De Niro), un ottimo attore (Irons), bravi caratteristi, musiche di Ennio Morricone. Scritto da Robert Bolt, prodotto dall'italiano Fernando Ghia, costato 22 milioni di dollari. Qua e là irritante per il suo tragicismo programmatico. Oscar alla fotografia di Chris Menges. Palma d'oro a Cannes. ( )
