Che: Part Two (Guerrilla) (2008)



Critic Consensus: The second part of Soderbergh's biopic is a dark, hypnotic and sometimes frustrating portrait of a warrior in decline, with a terrific central performance from Del Toro.

Movie Info

Part 2 of director Steven Soderbergh's Che Guevara saga begins with the famed Cuban revolutionary at the absolute peak of his fame and power. Disappearing suddenly, Guevara subsequently resurfaces in Bolivia to organize a modest group of Cuban comrades and Bolivian recruits in preparation for the Latin American Revolution. But while the Bolivian campaign would ultimately fail, the tenacity, sacrifice, and idealism displayed by Guevara during this period would make him a symbol of heroism to followers around the world. Parts 1 and 2 were screened together at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

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

This isn't a biography -- it's a nature show where Guevara is the lion.

Twice as long as it needs to be, but it is also only half the movie it should have been.

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

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,

Audience Reviews for Che: Part Two (Guerrilla)

This well-made second chapter of Soderbergh's two-part epic, centered now on Che in the Bolivian guerrilla, is more objective than the first one and does a better job to portray the character more as a man than a hero, which helps make it a slight improvement over Part 1.

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