Critic Reviews for Comandante
The pair make a smug double act, but you can't fault them for charisma.
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.
An opportunity frustratingly squandered, but one which still makes for fascinating viewing thanks to Castro's natural charisma. Errol Morris would have nailed it.

Audience Reviews for Comandante
Oliver Stone's documentary/footnote to the cold war days has an unique ability to make you rethink the issues your mind is most made up on.
This movie only shows a part of Fidel Castro. What he thinks and did in his life At this time, in America, Obama appears and Fidel retired officially. Things are changing now Economy is down and Bush totally messed up Capitalism had been taken by companies without morality So, it seems a little bit disappointment for me that this movie were not shown in America. To have another ideas, people can compare and comprehend how capitalism and democracy are great and iniquitous as a matter of facts. I was impressed his thoughts that he has forced to provide education, and health care, and said "It's impossible to establish world order based on force. The solutions to the world's problem is not military."
Many great questions asked, but if the translation were later, I would have given it another star. This movie is better for those who can understand Spanish.
