Sean Connery is a Franciscan monk who must solve a deadly mystery while facing down the Inquisition.  The real strengths of this movie are casting and makeup; everyone, besides Connery and his pliant Dr. Watson (Christian Slater), appears gnarled or bloated or stricken somehow — especially Ron Pearlman, as the mad hunchback.  Watchable.
