Critic Reviews for Cuba
A deeply flawed movie whose... willingness to complicate the genre it appears to inhabit make it much more valuable than its original reception was willing to admit.
A crushing bore. Even Connery can't save this one.
Incoherent look at life for the upper-crusts during the turbulent last days of the corrupt Batista regime.
So-so Connery vehicle
Cuba showcases Richard Lester's knack for making movies with ragtag plots and colorful characters.
'A vivid and dazzling depiction of the Cuban landscape and culture but also a weak plot that barely supports the intricate, detailed visuals.'
Audience Reviews for Cuba
An attempt to show the life of rich Cubanos in the days leading up to Fidel's revolution. A documentary would probably be more interesting.
Capitalizing on Sean Connery's Fame as 007, he didn't depart much from that role , as he is a British Mercenary for Hire here.A somewhat Elegant Film with Superb Cinematography that offers glimpses into Local Customs, Rebel Cause & Effect, & The Excesses of the Powerful,such was life in 1959 Cuba.Quite interesting to tour the Cigar & Rum factories along with the slimey ,Jack Weston, as Gutman.Also quite interesting glimpse into the extent of what extremists, the Rebels ,were under the Batista regime, even if they did take liberties with the History.Sean Connery as Robert Dapes looses his Tough Guy Mercenary focus, when he is reunited briefly with the Love he lost 15 years earlier, Alexandra(Brooke Adams) who is now married into the most powerful family in Cuba, & is unwilling to give up her life of Luxury & Prominence for him.I enjoyed this Film very much.
From what I didn't sleep through, I saw excellent direction. But, I fell asleep, so therefore, I cannot review this film.
