    Excellent film with an excellent cast with an excellent performance from Benicio del Toro, breathtaking. The script, the acting, the action, the drama, the true things that happen in this movie were unforgettable. I'm from Puerto Rico, and I can talk the same language as them, so I cant say this is a foreign film, sense it is from the same language as mine, and listening them talking in Spanish was just really great. The dialogue between everybody is rich and superbly acted, it was just a fantastic experience and I will be expecting Part Two to be just as epic as Part One.

    With "Che: Part One," Steven Soderbergh proves once again that he's one of the finest directors out there when it comes to creating a stylish, visually exceptional motion picture. But there's one element that Soderbergh's film is missing: emotion. We watch as political discussions are made, soldiers are recruited into Che's army and gunfights break out, but there is a fair amount of distance between us and these characters - so much, in fact, that we don't really care much about what they're doing. Soderbergh's cold approach is effective because it puts us right in the middle of the revolution, but it's also off-putting in how removed it is from the action. Benicio Del Toro's performance is solid and the final battle sequence is brilliantly staged, but "Che: Part One" just isn't really involving.

    What an incredible documentary re-enacted to perfection by Benicio Del Toro as the Argentine revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara. This film shows his beginning determination of the rise to power by recruiting his hand picked followers to become rebellious Cuban revolutionaries..originally led by Fidel Castro. Although at various times it is slow moving and thoroughly detailed with facts, it is a good piece of memorable Cuban non-fiction on film.

    A sprawling, epic look at the life of Che Guevara through the lense of Steven Soderbergh. Del Toro is brilliant in the lead.
