I thought the movie "The Mission" was good. It was interesting and told a story well. It had nice scenery and told a story well. I liked that it used the native Guarani Indians that seemed to add effect, and depicted their lifestyle as realistic as possible. The actors in the movie did a good job acting, including DeNiro.

Father Gabriel spread the Christian message, and by going out to preach to many indians who seem strange in their ways teaches another message with his actions. Taking the effort to be a missionary is a full step of devoting your life, and Father Gabriel shows this by loving theGuarani...
