Watching more than 4 hours about the life and times of Ernesto "Che" Guevara (first part in Cuba, second part in Bolivia) wasn't exactly boring, but I kept asking myself: Why did Soderbergh make this? Why such a grand effort? Del Toro (like always) does a fabulous job in portraying the world-renown guerrilla, but don't look at this as a history lesson. The complete absence of the people component in both the successful Cuban and the failed Bolivian "revolutions" is striking throughout both movie parts - but maybe that's the point. Maybe only arms/violence were the basic underlying mechanisms.
(PS: I loved the geography lesson at the beginning of each episode!)
