5.0 out of 5 stars the cold reality of an inspired martyrdom 27 Feb 2009
Format:DVD
the cold reality of an inspired martyrdom -che2

soderbergh is in a different mood in part 2 with a bearded toro who turns controversial as he mysteriously disappears from cuba in 1965 after brooding a family of five with aulia his wife .
we see him arrive incognito in la paz ,bolivia and he explains his reasons for wanting to spread the revolution through central america in a country where half the miners are child labour and of those majority are dead by the age thirty and when they ask for better wages they are massacred .
there is no better reason for a revolution and you can hardly argue with that point of view,
but bolivia is harsh and different as here religion is used by the regime as a card against the communist guerrillas and the peasants are deceived into betraying their very saviours as godless traitors to christianity .
this is very dark ,both with the muted light and colour and the cinematography is in a different frame as well with hand held camera shots of ravine crossings ,betrayals with planned massacres and dearth of food and medication .
it seems like the inspired team know they are doomed but are too committed to turn back and the few reluctant mates have no choice to opt out as the noose tightens around them in a rugged natural harsh hinterland .
the peasants behave much differently from the cuban populace and it seems bolivians then were not ready for the vision of che though the man was obsessed with the ideals of free and just society for them which to them was too much of a dream to fantasize .

5.0 out of 5 stars Hasta la victoria siempre 3 Jan 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film really brings alive the Cuban Revolution. I watched it once before I visited Cuba and it was good then. However, it is outstanding if you have ever visited the locations where the actions took place at the time. The train wreck at Santa Clara is spectacular and seems to have been staged in its original location. The hotel at Santa Clara still has bullet holes in the walls and in the film we see a reconstruction on the same location as the battle. The acting was good and it was difficult to tell any difference between Che himself and Benicio del Toro. There is a clever use of newsreels to authenticate the story line. Sometimes what looks like newsreel is in actual fact part of the story filmed in black and white. The fact that the dialogue is in Spanish may put some people off as English speaking people do not seem to like films in other languages these days, but the use of Spanish makes it much more realistic.

As good if not better than CHE1. Del Torro is Che. An inspiring film with great action scenes and a realistic depiction of the idea of revolution. Viva Che!

Brilliant adaptation of the story of Che Guevara. The acting throughout is believable, and really grasps the personality of each of the characters. The film seamlessly builds tension juxtaposed with humour. A film for anyone interested in war, politics, or just brilliant movies.

After a recent holiday to Cuba I thought I would see what all the fuss about this Che chappy was. Excellent film, "up the revolution!"
