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.

February 19, 2009 | Rating: 4/6 | Full Review…

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

January 8, 2009 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

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

January 7, 2009 | Rating: C | Full Review…

where Part One is the triumph of the Cuban Revolution and Che's part in making it a success, Part Two is the failure of the dream in Bolivia and the desperation and the failure is felt in more jarring camerawork.

December 15, 2017 | Full Review…

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

August 16, 2011 | Full Review…

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.

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.
