Simple enough for audiences who know nothing about Bolívar, poetic enough for those who grew up reading about El Libertador in school books.

Arvelo, a Venezuelan like Bolivar, touches many of the essential bases in Bolivar's story. But, perhaps inevitably, he is only able to achieve little more than mere touches.

As if the film's ostentatious aerial vistas, merely functional scene-writing and score weren't distracting enough, Mr. Sexton's dialogue freezes dead any simulation of the period with tone-deaf lines amid Bolívar's impassioned rhetoric.

How disappointing that a movie about challenging authority should be such a slave to convention.

Édgar Ramírez is electifying as Simón Bolívar, the Venezuelan land owner turned warrior. But even Ramírez cannot liberate this movie from a clichéd script.

The emotions and desires that "The Liberator" dramatizes are such that anyone can feel them and understand.
