Critics Reviews

The New York Times
Mr. Bernal's soulful, magnetic performance notwithstanding, the real star of the film is South America itself, revealed in the cinematographer Eric Gautier's misty green images as a land of jarring and enigmatic beauty.

An idealistic young man goes on a roadtrip with his friend and becomes politically awakened along the way. Unremarkable stuff which had me hovering over the off button more than once. Of course,the reason why this is so popular is that it's about...

I don't even think the reviewer "jon paul" watched this film..
The movie has great scenery and a great cast. I did feel that this film went on for quite a while, and as my boyfriend put it, "the end was rushed" (colombia and venezuela were barely a minute each). But the movie still does a great job of showing...

The movie was only passable as a road trip / buddy movie, and a failure as a look at the forces that produced Che Guevara. The 'revolutionarry beliefs' are watered down so much that even George Bush could admire them [be nice to lepers, give the...
