I rather enjoyed Che and I’ll probably watch part two. But there is nothing all that interesting with the film.
The shootouts are well done, but director Steven Soderbergh focuses on fairly superficial aspects instead of digging into the psychè and mysteries of Che Guevara and exploring the romantic image of him that have been reproduced many times but have started to crack in later years. What we get is basically a competent, visually bland, description of walks and battles, interspersed with clips of Che Guevara’s speeches.
In fact, Soderberghs Ocean’s 13 -as mainstream as it may be- was a much more interesting work in it’s mise-en-scene and cinematography.
