The movies The Mission and Excaliber are my two very favorites. Both of which I have repeatedly watched. I am not normally a fan of De Niro, but this part is out of character for him and he plays it beautifully. The Mission is a movie that, once seen, you will never forget.

The Mission is an ageless movie whose music and cinematography are just as much part of the cast as Robert Deniro, Jeremy Irons, and Liam Neeson. The storyline is timeless, though this happens to be set in the mid 1700s. Ultruistic Jesuit missions are helping improve impoverished lives from tribes on the run from each other to agrarian equity-sharing ventures. These missional communities begin to clash and intertwine with Spanish and Portguese greed and the quest for dominance. It is in this tension that we encounter the lives and stories that unfold and interwine throughout The Mission. Dialogue is kept succinct, which keeps it packed with power as the stories unfold. In good conscience, I cannot give this a 5 star without noting to the prospective viewer that the film is from the late 80s. As such, some of the scenes and effects lack modern technique. Thus, if you watch it on a comfy couch expecting to be taken back in time to a distant land, you'll be delighted. Yet, if you arm-chair quarterback it and critique every scene...you'll be right that "this blah-blah-blah could be better", but you will have missed an amazing film.
