Che: Part Two (Guerrilla) (2008)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: The second part of Soderbergh's biopic is a dark, hypnotic and sometimes frustrating portrait of a warrior in decline, with a terrific central performance from Del Toro.

Movie Info

Part 2 of director Steven Soderbergh's Che Guevara saga begins with the famed Cuban revolutionary at the absolute peak of his fame and power. Disappearing suddenly, Guevara subsequently resurfaces in Bolivia to organize a modest group of Cuban comrades and Bolivian recruits in preparation for the Latin American Revolution. But while the Bolivian campaign would ultimately fail, the tenacity, sacrifice, and idealism displayed by Guevara during this period would make him a symbol of heroism to followers around the world. Parts 1 and 2 were screened together at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Che: Part Two (Guerrilla)

All Critics (53) | Top Critics (12)

Che Two is deeply impressive: austerely confident, coherent and mysterious.

February 20, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This plodding, one-paced, dramatically inert movie is almost entirely surface description.

February 20, 2009 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Saying that a film has too much insight is hardly damning.

February 19, 2009 | Rating: 4/6 | Full Review…

Darker in tone and more introspective thematically, Che: Part 2 is the more interesting of the two films.

Top Critic

His film is brilliantly shot, capturing the chilly bareness of the landscapes through which the rebels yomp, but it's formalist and clinical to a degree that will challenge viewers eager to identify with the figures it depicts.

February 19, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This film is stronger than the first. The pale, sepulchral tones give a ritualistic eeriness to the long pursuit scenes.

Audience Reviews for Che: Part Two (Guerrilla)

This well-made second chapter of Soderbergh's two-part epic, centered now on Che in the Bolivian guerrilla, is more objective than the first one and does a better job portraying the character more as a man than a hero, which helps make it a slight improvement over Part 1.

A sprawling, epic look at the life of Che Guevara through the lense of Steven Soderbergh. Del Toro is brilliant in the lead.
