Benicio Del Torro stars as the oft romanticised revolutionary, Che Guevara, in Steven Soderbergh’s two part epic. The sweep of the two films is certainly ambitious, covering the entire period of the Cuban revolution as well as Che’s last months in Bolivia. Del Torro‘s performance is impressive giving a convincing performance that displays the sheer will and strength of character that was central to Che’s personality. Yet, there is also a sense that despite the meticulously researched history of Che’s life the film presents very little in terms of the inner workings and controversies surrounding the man.
