Good but not for everyoneBy a customer from Leeds , 01 Jan 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]Just came back from a pre-screening of both parts and have to say that I spent great five hours in the cinema. This (first) part tells about Ches story in Cuba at the beginning of the revolution. I advise you to read about Che before you go to see this movie because there is no introduction to his life at all. Without knowing a bit about the most recognized revolutionist you may feel like you missed the first hour. The movie is made well and you wont get bored at all. Really good effort from Soderbergh. Benicios performance was outstanding. Probably his best till now...?? Be prepared to read subtitles most of the time unless you know Spanish. One more thing. If you know Che only from your t-shirt print then maybe it is not the best choice for you to see this film. Better choose Spiderman 7 or sth like that...

Pretty InformativeBy a customer from Oxford , 09 Mar 2010More like a documentary than a film. Very interesting and leaves you wanting to delve deeper into the life of one of history's most fascinating charahters.
Che-part 1By Scoosh (5 reviews) from Glasgow , 05 Mar 2010Good movie. If you are looking for excitement and thrills then you won't get them here. if you are interested in the history of the time then this is it.
My understanding is that Castro was a political thug , certainly in the beginning , but this doesn't quite cone across enough.
Not all thatBy lordflashheart (89 reviews) from Newport Pagnell , 28 Feb 2010Maybe one for the arty people.Partly spainish and partly english. seemed a bit long winded to me.
Benicio is brilliantBy a customer from manchester , 27 Feb 2010Benicios incarnation of Che is brilliant, a well deserved best actor award. The only downside is the mixture of Puerto Rican and Cuban accents. However, for the non spanish native-speaker it will be imperceptible. All in all, a good movie.
Unremittingly boring.By a customer from Berkshire, England , 23 Feb 2010Whilst Che - Part One is undeniably beautiful, incredibly faithful and well acted, it still manages to be just absulutely dull. Che apart, there are no meaningful characters that are at all memorable that play any major role. Compounding this issue is the lack of dialogue and very similar-looking men, making it hard to distinguish between the few characters there are.
Soderbergh has seemingly forgotten that films are intended to entertain, and despite the historical merit, he has managed to make a very interesting and significant event in modern history exceedingly boring. Even the action utterly fails to engage.
I suggest The Motorcycle Diaries instead.
