A weak movie about Lampião.
6 July 2001 | by gazineo-1See all my reviews

Weak, overlong and monotonous movie about Lampião, a Brazilian outlaw who spreads fear and violence in rural hinterlands in the 20 and 30's. The movie is innacurated with historical aspects of this almost legendary history characther and although the good cast the result is boring and disappointing. See "O Cangaceiro" (1953) instead of this one.
