      The Motorcycle Diaries Reviews

      The Motorcycle Diaries takes you along on a meandering road trip through South America with a young Che Guevara, the Marxist revolutionary.

      Full Review | Aug 18, 2022

      A breathtaking road trip movie across South America. A coming of age & consciousness story carried by a strong performance from Bernal.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5 | Aug 15, 2021

      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.

      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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 5/5 | Dec 7, 2007

      A thought-provoking film, grounded in breathtaking scenery and engaging performances.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4 | Sep 27, 2006

      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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 7/10 | Jun 29, 2005

      This is the kind of movie that a serious student of the art of filmmaking will relish.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/4 | Apr 17, 2005

      In a time when so many 'biopics' are predictable love-fests, it's great to see a film that digs back into a famous person's youth and explains HOW he became so influential.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5 | Mar 3, 2005

      The two leads are strong; but while the trip may have substantially moved the two travelers, the film doesn't move much until the last half-hour.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Feb 21, 2005

      As a movie, The Motorcycle Diaries is beautiful, with strong acting, breathtaking location cinematography and a vibrant story. As history, it is more dubious.

      Full Review | Original Score: A- | Feb 18, 2005

      The understated drama frequently takes a backseat to magnificent scenery, lusciously photographed by cinematographer Eric Gautier.

      Many of the people they meet are unremarkable. In fact, the two main characters aren't all that interesting, either.

      ... marble immortals begin their lives as mere human children, susceptible to the delights and terrors of a humming and limited world.

      Full Review | Original Score: B+ | Dec 26, 2004

      Left me less than sated and unprepared for its apolitical stance on a subject who was known for his leftist radicalism.

      Full Review | Original Score: C | Dec 13, 2004

      Sells Communism like a toothpaste commercial.

      Filled with the vigour and humour of youth and the depth of idealism, but carried on a tide of visceral human experience

      Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
