Critic Reviews for Comandante

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (5)

  • An opportunity frustratingly squandered, but one which still makes for fascinating viewing thanks to Castro's natural charisma. Errol Morris would have nailed it.

  • The pair make a smug double act, but you can't fault them for charisma.

  • Fidel is up to everything Stone lobs gently at him, and even replies to the film-maker's rather crass philosophising, of which there is far too much.

    January 15, 2004 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Ultimately, Comandante feels like little more than a backslapping love-in.

  • In all, we get a better sense of who this guy is, a man who has spent more time on the international stage than any world leader today.

  • Even when he seems less than forthright, Castro rarely fails to come across as a genial, charismatic guy. But that might just be the magic of the movies.

  • The documentary that, according to HBO, isn't good enough for you to see.

Audience Reviews for Comandante

    There's a little bit too much ego at work here, but it's an interesting (if biased) document nonetheless.

    Fidel Castro wears Nike trainers & Oliver Stone looks like Saddam Hussain
