Storyline

Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, aka 'Carlos,' is a Venezuelan-born Marxist revolutionary who aligns himself with the Palestinian cause and becomes the world's most notorious terrorist. He leads assaults on the meeting of OPEC ministers, taking them hostage and flying them from country to country seeking asylum, one of the most daring acts of terrorism in history. From his earliest days as an apprentice in the revolutionary movement to his subsequent downfall, Carlos becomes a figure of legend. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Quotes

Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, aka 'Carlos': I'm going to kill you. Not yet. You're a smart man and you know the ins and outs of politics the same way I do. You know that in the end of the day we're just pawns in the game of history, aren't we? Me, I'm a soldier. I don't have a home, I live in a tent, my only mission is to lead my men to victory. Today, I have 40 commando groups around the world, ready to act as soon as I give the order. They're men with determination and they're ready to sacrifice themselves for the cause and for the ...

One of the best of the year
16 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fast and furious, very much like the mesmerizing Mesrine in its focus on a focused, driven psychopath who ultimately commits crimes for the sense of power and adrenaline they fuel. Character vignettes are sharply portrayed in short, slower-paced scenes that provide rest stops from our own adrenaline rush and illustrate the defining personality traits of the eponymous anti-hero. As one example: the seduction scene in part 2 between Carlos and the German femme terrorist Magdalena Kopp.

Quite simply, like Mesrine, great cinema with action, passion and tragedy, and one of the best movies of the year.

Don't see anything less than the full version. DVR the showing on Sundance or wait for DVDs. The film was shot as a miniseries and there's no reason to see it in a theater, especially if it's the truncated version.
