Biography of Argentinian revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara, who helped Fidel Castro in his struggle against the corrupt Batista regime, eventually resulting in the overthrow of that government and Castro's taking over of Cuba. The film covers Guevara's life from when he first landed in Cuba in 1956 to his death in an ambush by government troops in the mountains of Bolivia in 1967.Written by
A 20th Century Fox press release at the time stated that "None of the various texts written on Che Guevara, nor his published diary penned by the revolutionary during the Bolivian episode, was utilized in the final treatment from which the screenplay was adapted." This was presumably so as not to offend any of the parties featured in the film, which was made only two years after Guevara's death. See more »
San Juan, Puerto Rico, served as the setting for the Communists' triumphal entry into Havana. In one scene you can see a street identified as Calle Federico Degetau (Federico Degetau Street). Degetau was a Puerto Rican politician and writer, and therefore not someone likely to have a street named in his honor in Havana. See more »
The peasant is like a wild flower in the forest, and the revolutionary like a bee. Neither can survive or propogate without the other. There is one essential difference between us and bees, however. In this hive, I will *not* tolerate drones!

If you're looking for an accurate portrayal of Che Guevara, the Cuban revolutionary who helped aid Fidel Castro in his bid for power, you'd better read up on Cuban history or even type in his name on a search engine (you ARE on the Internet, after all).
But whatever you do, DO NOT WATCH "CHE!".
Unless, of course, you just want a good laugh.
All the reviewers of the time (and moviegoers) gave "Che!" their vote for worst film of the decade. And no wonder; have you seen this travesty? Its facts are tenuous at best, Sharif is even unconvincing as a corpse and as for Palance's Fidel Catsro imitation....
Like I said, if you want a good laugh.
It's like watching a co-production between The Learning Channel and Mad Magazine.
I wonder if Palance can do W. C. Fields, too?
