Fueld by promises of gold, Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro and his explorers venture across the treacherous Andes Mountains to Peru. There, Pizarro captures King Atahuallpa, Inca's godlike monarch, and promises his freedom upon the deliverance of gold. But friendship and respect develop between the two leaders and when the King is sentenced to die, Pizarro finds himself torn between his desire for conquest and his sense of honor for the King.

"The Royal Hunt of the Sun" is basically a theater play captured on film. The actors deliver very pithy lines. Two Spanish priests debate religion with Atahualpa, the Inca king, who claims that he is a living god. Christopher Plummer's performance as Atahualpa is striking. If you enjoy history or plays, then you will enjoy this film. I would rate "The Royal Hunt of the Sun" at 4.0 stars.
