Decent Movie, But Nothing Amazing
30 May 2008 | by ekestlerSee all my reviews

Just finished watching this film. Overall I think this deserves a rental, but not a purchase.

First off Eduardo Noriega does a good job portraying Che. The cinematography is quite nice to look at, as well as Paula Garcés is very pretty to look at as well.

As much as I really wanted to like this as a film I just didn't. The way the story is told seems very sporadic, and jumps all over the place. The shoot-outs never feel suspenseful, and the usage of the stock footage seems like it was used a a style thing, instead of using it to help tell the story.

Also, the musical score. Some films use a piece of music several times throughout a film and it just works. This film however doesn't. It seems like he just re-used the same piece of music because he didn't have any other stuff to work with. It also feels like he is trying too hard to make you feel a certain emotion when there just isn't enough time spent to really understand fully what is going.

Perhaps I am being a bit harsh, but I was left disappointed after the film ended. I should also mention I got so bored the first time I watched it that I had to turn it off.

Not a bad effort, but not great either. Let's hope the Del Toro version will be more detailed, and feel more like a film and not a documentary.
