Critic Reviews for The Wrath of God

All Critics (3)

Is easy enough to enjoy because it seldom takes itself very seriously.

Nelson, who also wrote the script, isn't consistent in the kind of movie he has made. Are these three devil-may-care soldiers of fortune types? Is the movie about total evil?

It slowly builds to an action-packed conclusion that saves it from the doldrums.

Audience Reviews for The Wrath of God

Have to wonder of Robert Rodriguez saw this movie because there are moments in The Wrath of God that reminded me of some of his films. Highly recommended for cinephiles as this is Rita Hayworth's last movie. It's been reported she was already displaying signs of Alzheimer's. Despite this, her screen presence was still undeniable. And, then there's Robert Mitchum. I'm of the opinion that any movie with Mitchum is worth a watch.
