The Hollywood Reporter
A smartly scoped story of great personal growth and transformation. It's not hard to see the personality/political basis for Che's later revolutionary actions. Full Review
Carla Meyer
San Francisco Chronicle
A superb film. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
More coming-of-age story than biopic, this Guevara odyssey is a transformative adventure well worth watching. Full Review
Dana Stevens
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. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
The movie's not heavyhanded about this coming of moral age; the revelations unfurl in subtle ways. What Bernal and this well-wrought movie convey so well is the charisma that would soon become a part of human history. Full Review
