Quite interesting overall
24 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The film portrays gory accounts of the suffering during the Mexican Revolution and is a good representation of the Revolution from Zapata's point of view, The peasants ordeals are realistic and the music used during crucial parts of the film are extremely effective. personally I found it to be a one sided portrayal

of the Revolution, as it concentrated on Zapata. However it contained ample information about his life and the uprising of the peasants. As an old film by now, it still contained an interesting plot line and it was quite entertaining to watch. For people studying or interested in the Mexican Revolution I would recommend this film as it is quite factual and show the highlights of Emiliano Zapata's life as well as his day to day life.
