| A powerful piece of work.
Archbishop Oscar Romero was a priest who was went to Archbishop in El Salvador. During that time, the new bishop speaks out against the death squads that harmed the streets of El Salvador. The terror campaign, the government was using to crushed the warfare that is being waged against them. That is the true story set-up for Romero. Romero starts out with a campaign from the government people and their leaders. Raul Julia gives a memorable performance as the Archbishop who struggled to stop the genocide from occurring. This also leads to disloyalty against the churches of El Salvador. Only one man will stepped in and make it stop and listen to the truth. Romero was assassinated in March, 1980. It is a powerful movie to watch as we see the horrific details of this atrocity. I seen this movie in my History class. Oscar Romero is one of the least known subject in a History class. While the actual Romero moved El Salvador, I was moved by Raul Julia's performance. Romero is one of those political dramas that really grab the audiences and put them inside the real world of the movie. It is a must-see. ★★★ 1/2 3 1/2 stars
