Review: "Oro" The Movie

"Oro" was released in 2017. "Oro" means gold. The movie is not about Columbus, but it is about the same era, or rather, close to his era; the era of the "Conquistadores." Some of the Conquistadores stories are included on De Orbe Novo by Peter Martyr, who was one of Columbus primary historical sources. However, the movie is not a real story, but it is inspired by real events. Unlike Columbus, who was a pious man, the Conquistadores were like the characters in this movie: sketchy, fighting for power, betraying one another, backstabbers, etc. Just check the trailer video above to have an idea. The movie has a good beginning, but the ending was ok. It could have been better. The movie is in Spanish, with English subtitles.
