Rebel. Hero. Lover. Legend. Che Guevara has inspired generation after generation as the young idealist and revolutionary who fought for the poor and oppressed. Eduardo Noriega (Vantage Point,Open Your Eyes, The Devil's Backbone) electrifies in the title role of this fascinating story about Che's fearless life, helping to lead a bloody socialist revolt that would shock the world. Written by
Great story to be told, but this effort was, as previous comments noted, amateurish. The most interesting thing about the production (?): What may be a "goof" in this home movie was after Che and a couple of others manage to survive the Cuban landing and fight their way through mountains, he appears to sporting a very nice wristwatch while performing doctor duties with one of the locals. Hopefully it's a Rolex. Anybody see "The Party" with Peter Sellars? Opening is a movie shot of a 19th century Indian skirmish in which he's wearing a 1960's wristwatch. The director loses it after having to shoot another take on account of this slip. Apparently in Che they didn't have the time.
