The Motorcycle Diaries is heartfelt and profound in its rendering of the formative experiences that turn Ernesto "Che" Guerva into a famous revolutionary.

Walter Salles's well-observed movie downplays politics for humanism. It's a picturesque tale that, hobbled by its episodic structure, never achieves full steam.
A marvelous road picture and boys-become-men adventure, full of the best kind of idealism.
A dull, unsatisfying experience -- as well as inconclusive.
Well-acted, beautifully shot and broad and personal, The Motorcycle Diaries is nonetheless undermined in the end by a clunky search for meaning and depth that seems forced.
Quietly exhilarating, soulful and sincerely romantic.
It's about the gradual wakening into awareness, the graduation from carefree youth to responsible adulthood.
This is radical chic without the radicalism, seemingly geared toward people who find Guevara vaguely admirable but would be turned off by talk of class struggle and revolution.
Subtly political biopic won't interest most teens.
Has a huge heart.
A thought-provoking film, grounded in breathtaking scenery and engaging performances.
The episodic nature of the road movie weakens the film's momentum, but the longer sequences maintain sufficient interest to keep the viewer involved.
For most of the viewers, regardless of their political beliefs, THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES is a journey worth taking.
As a road trip film, it's stellar. As a historical insight into the events and psychological gear grinding that influenced the revolutionary leader known as Che Guevarra, it falters.
Whatever the intentions of its filmmakers what ultimately succeeds here is the opening of South America as more than simply a world party/nightclub stop as two young professionals put their promising lives on hold for a bit in order to sightsee their own unknown and surprisingly impoverished continent.
The Motorcycle Diaries is a wonderful, heartfelt film about two Argentinians who decide to bike across South America from Buenos Aires, to Valpariso, and on to Machu Picchu and Caracas in Venezuela. Gael Garcia Bernal and Rodrigo de la Serna star in this beautifully photographed, profound film, but the film doesn't go into any details about Ernesto "Che" Guevara's life as the Cuban Revolutionary, and the story gets pretty scattered and it's sometimes hard to know where they are in the trip or how they got to where they are.
I just watched this movie for the second time. I really like this movie. It doesn't hurt that Gael Bernal is a very good actor, also....but that was just icing on the cake. There was alot of thought put into this movie. It was serious at times, touching at times, and also very funny at times.
