Benicio Del Toro is fantastic in his portrayal of Che Guevara – fabled revolutionary of Latin America. Steven Sodderberg directed this awesome movie that begins with clandestine meetings in Mexico City and culminates with the taking of Havana by Che and the leader of the movement, Fidel Castro.
There is a romantic quality to this film which comes into full light when juxtaposed against Che: Part 2 (review to follow). Che comes across as someone devoted to high level ideals – willing to give the ultimate sacrifice for the betterment of the people.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film.
