| Part History, Part Propaganda, Partly Good
This is a one sided docudrama about the Cristeros War in Mexico (1926-1929), a war between Catholics against the atheist Government of Mexico.

Andy Garcia stars as the leader of the revolt Enrique Gorostieta. The big problem with this is his acting style. He is too cold and too regal. It's hard to maintain his humanity while he seems to be above it all.

There is no doubt that this is a one-sided history. Are they putting on propaganda? Just consider that the production company and money has a lot of Catholic and supporters' fingers on it. Keep that in mind, and watch a pretty good movie.
