O Dragão da Maldade contra o Santo Guerreiro (1969) AKA Antonio das Mortes


Period piece about a Brazil that is no more. This movie is the sequel to “Black God, White Devil”, and takes place 29 years after Antonio das Mortes killed Corisco (the “Blond Devil”), last of the Cangaceiros. In “the old days”, Antonio’s function in life was to exterminate these bandits, on account of his personal grudges against them. His life had been meaningless for the last 29 years, but now, a new challenge awaits him. When a Cangaceiro appears the local Land Baron, an old man, does what seems obvious to him: he calls Antonio das Mortes, killer of Cangaceiros. At first, Antonio is ecstatic. His life has gained new meaning. But soon it becomes obvious that this new Cangaceiro (named Coirana) is no Corisco, but an idealist.

Note: Despite being an HD transfer this copy isn’t that great, has a lot of ghosting and playback is jerky at times but it’s still better than was available previously, hopefully a proper restoration will be done soon, it really deserves to be watched at the highest quality possible.

    The English subtitles in the Source File are Danish, not English. Is it possible to give a link to these particular English subs? I’ve just spent some time trying to make other ones fit using Subtitle Edit but there appear to be timing issues that are beyond me.

      Thanks for letting me know, Paul, I just responded your email but it bounced back, seems like something is not working correctly with your email provider or something. Here’s the correct English sub: https://files.catbox.moe/np2bzn.srt. Links for the 1080p will be changed in shortly as well to remove the Danish sub and add the correct one in English.
