Review of Benecio del Toro in Che

Summer Netflix Challenge: Benicio as Che

The following post was written by brisas, who posted it in the Summer Netflix Challenge group.

I had first read about Che the Movie on BuzzSugar and while four hours is a lot of time to dedicate to just one movie, it is well worth it. I spent an lazy Saturday afternoon enjoying this long but superbly executed movie. The entire movie is subtitled but for me I think it would have been distracting to hear Che and Fidel with dubbed English voices. I have read that many felt this portrayal wasn't accurate and large sections of his life were left out but a movie can only be so long!

The first disc is his struggle to take Cuba from Batista. Che, Fidel and the rest of the team definitely fought both his army and nature to accomplish such a feat. Disc two, he enters into Bolivia under a new identity trying to accomplish the same in Bolivia as in Cuba and in the process meets his death. I know this movie is controversial but there is no question that Benicio was perfect in this role.

If you have seen The Motorcycle Diaries about Che's adventure as a doctor through South America, Che the movie is very different and much more action packed and emotional in my opinion. If you love Benicio as much as me, you will want to add this to your watch list!
