Sean Kelly

My Thoughts on Che

Today I sat through the gruelling experience of watching the entire four hour and seventeen minutes of Steven Soderbergh's two-part biopic about Ernesto "Che" Guevara.

Each part of the film tells different stories. The first part deals with the Cuban revolution, while the second part deals with Che's futile coupe in Bolivia.

I have to say that I enjoyed part one a bit better and I found part two a more low-key and somber film (however, I believe that was partially the goal).

Either way I thought Benico Del Toro was excellent I would recommend seeing at least part one.

Part One: 8/10
Part Two: 7/10
Overall: 8/10
