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
This film is embarrassingly bad. I don't blame Noriega; he has proved his acting ability in other films. However, the script and the direction for this movie are absolutely terrible. Every line is spoken as if by by a kid in a sixth-grade school production.
The dialogue is nothing more than exposition -- "We need to take the fort. It will give us a moral victory." "Let's go." "A large number of enemy soldiers are coming." "If you are lying, you will b punished." "I saw them." "Where are they?" There is absolutely no drama, no insight, nothing. Just a flat display of a series of events, almost like an old-fashioned "life of the saints" type performance.
The whole movie reminded me of a scene in Woody Allen's "Life and Death," in which a doctor, a soldier, and a prostitute were assigned to present a dramatic performance illustrating the dangers of venereal diseases -- stiff, amateurish, non-acting
