      Antonio Sison National Catholic Reporter To be sure, the film's heart is in the right place. It feels authentic. But it feels less so when it gets lost in its own pious intentions and opts for a more literal representation of Ignacio's mysticism. May 1, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Ignacio de Loyola is a film that strives to achieve historical accuracy that is plagued by fighting scenes that look purely acted than authentic, but its engaging and meaningful story quickly makes up for this and has made this one of the best movies about saints ever made. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member I cried like a baby watching this film. This film reminds me why I love the Jesuit order so much. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Clotaire R Even for pure entertainment it sucks! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/27/21 Full Review Audience Member One of the very finest movies Iï¿ 1/2(TM)ve ever seen about the life of a saint. It manages both to the story of his St Ignatius and also to present clearly the basic tenets of Ignatian spirituality. Excellent acting...very worth seeing Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam! Great movie! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member This film accurately depicted a slice of St. Ignatius's early life, and dealt intelligently and fairly with difficult periods like his dangerous brushes with the Spanish Inquisition, his long convalescence from a cannon injury, and his early romanticization and later Christian repentance of the warrior life. This film deserves a sequel, and it's a shame that an excellent film like this with superb, capable actors, great settings, and a stirring musical score was marketed to so few theaters. I went with a group of friends, and we all were enthralled. A must see to understand the origins of the Order of Jesuits. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
