Customer Reviews

One of Soderberg's best films.
Novelismo
It's a tremendous feet to be able to take such public well known figures such as Fidel Castro and Che Guevara and make them surprising and relatable.

Benicio is fantastic. He drew me to this film and does a spectacular job portraying Che. It was an interesting film and one I learned from.

Love history, and really enjoyed this movie. That being said, not sure how accurate it is, and I am pretty sure it is based on a naive American liberal perspective, but it is still a very good movie. Without trying, it showed me how very unrealistic and destructive Leftists are, no matter how well intentioned. I can surely see why Cubans revolted against Batista, but they made the mistake of putting people like Che, Castro, et. al. in charge of things they really knew nothing about, only Marxist ideology which always ends in failure. Che is given the position of minister of Industries!? He is a doctor and a soldier and he is going to create a new economy based on his philosopy. Ah, no thanks! The film doesn't, however, show the reality that when Marxists gain control they just shift the very small percentage of wealth and power from the fascist dictator to themselves. Their obsession with material equality and stats is shown well at the beginning of the film in Mexico. Unfortunately, the only way to create equality of material condition is total control, just like in prison or a slave based economy. Total control, the real goal of people like Che.

This movie was based on Chi's bio instead of historical fact. The so called battle of Santa Claire never happened, the govt. troops laid down their arms without firing a shot. In the movie Chi leads the rebels in house to house fighting which he did not do. Where is the part of him killing thousands for being educated in the soccer stadium in Havana he led the death squads by machine gunning hundreds himself. This movie is a complete white wash of the facts.

This is just a great movie about the Cuban struggle in the late fifties and early sixties. Gives a greater understanding of Che, his philosophy, background and leadership ability. Does a great job of portraying how the Cubans were living and what they were facing. Movie was very detailed down to the weapons and equipment of the period.
You must view both movies to get the complete picture.

I found myself respecting Che as a person. I knew little about him before this. In this telling of his life, we see a man with enormous integrity and wisdom, always doing the right thing, and being a truly believable leader of soldiers and leader of a revolutionary movement. I just liked seeing such a warm story of someone with such a difficult and creative path to follow.

I recommend this movie to anyone interested in the Latin America history and the role of Ernesto Guevara both in Cuba and Bolivia and the failure of the wisdom of exporting the Cuban Revolution other countries. The work of Benicio Del Toro is excellent.

I'm playing catch up on history, I've heard a bit about Che. Then I became baffled on why kids are wearing shirts with Che on them. I watched part one, maybe part 2 gives a better story of the Che that I have heard about. The movie lost me for one reason. I don't know any of the actors, and this movie has different players in it like Fidel Castro and a few others. The way the movie was shot, I should have known who the characters were. Thirty minutes in my wife is sitting there asking me if the person we are watching was Che or Castro. I told her I wasn't sure. The movie bounces from film footage that might be original or real, or it might be to look like it was authentic. It goes from old black and white clips to color, then it bounces constantly from different periods in time. Pre- Pre revolution, Pre revolution, revolution, and I think after the revolution. I got lost as this mindless ramble of mine shows. I hope this helps. I'm going to watch it again and see if I can learn anything from this.
