Sword of the Avenger Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Economically filmed in Mexico, Sword of the Avenger is essentially a Latin-flavored version of . During a 19th-century Philippine insurrection, Spanish sailor Roberto Balagtas (Ramon Del Gado) is falsely accused of fomenting the revolt. After a lengthy internment Roberto escapes from prison, obtaining a treasure map along the way. With his new-found wealth, Roberto returns to Manila under an assumed name, determined to destroy his enemies. Sigrid Gurie plays Maria Louisa, Roberto's sweetheart-turned-rebel leader. Throughout the film, analogies are drawn between the despotic rulers of the Philippines and the recently defeated Nazis, bringing a contemporary touch to the proceedings. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
