Che: Part Two (Guerrilla) Reviews

Kelly Vance
East Bay Express

After the exhilaration of Part One, the mood of Part Two seems somber, almost funereal, but it's integral to the story.

What Culture

As a standalone film this is far less enjoyable than the first, but there is enough in here to engage and entertain for the duration.

Part Two is the more interesting film. ... Gorgeously shot in a lyrically linear style, with combat often depicted with carefully composed extreme long shots,

Soderbergh has no interest in sentimentality, or back story, or even really in Guevara's philosophy, except as a rigorously footnoted onscreen reflection. Practically rejecting outright the concept of poetic license, Che is radical as a biopic.

Eye for Film

Certainly Soderbergh gives you a sense of the boredom of war - as the days tick by on the screen, you feel your own will to live begin to falter.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

... a deeply interesting and commercially brave movie, one that recognizes the limits inherent in cinematic biography. It is meant to be experienced, not sounded for meanings, and is weakest when Soderbergh caves into his poetic impulses...

The film's narrative flow is less driven by events, which are revealed in spurts, but are drawn along as their inevitable consequences.

The film quickly turns into what can best be described as a lot of wandering around in the Bolivian jungle.

At this length, that's an unforgivable sin.

The persuasiveness of the film's reconstructions is impressive, but there is hardly ever any tension. It's hard to tell exactly what Soderbergh was hoping to achieve.

Observer [UK]

It's well staged, but a good deal less gripping than the first part and the political background is less clear than it might have been.

The saving graces are a commanding performance from Del Toro and the inspirational humanity of Guevara; even facing defeat and death he still has an unshakable belief that right will prevail and social justice will flourish.

Che Two is deeply impressive: austerely confident, coherent and mysterious.

Benicio Del Toro is superb as the asthmatic, pipe-smoking Che, while the supporting cast capture the frustration of a disintegrating armed struggle.

This plodding, one-paced, dramatically inert movie is almost entirely surface description.

Having given us Che the icon, Del Toro now gives us Che the man: an asthmatic, flawed individual, powerless to prevent events spiralling out of his control. The film itself is far less compelling.

Like Guevara's slog through the Bolivian undergrowth, Che Part Two is a hallucinatory journey into the heart of darkness, defined by a performance of great presence.

Saying that a film has too much insight is hardly damning.

A gripping, astringent portrayal of what happens when you try to force a revolution on territory which isn't fertile ground, in and of itself, Soderbergh's second instalment exerts a certain analytical intrigue.

Darker in tone and more introspective thematically, Che: Part 2 is the more interesting of the two films.
