Che is a crap + boring movie.

Thats all you need to know.

2 parts. Each one over 2 hours long.
The film sequence is totally disconnected and random. Jumping back and forth in time.
The film doesn't even hint or portray his ideals or philosophy. He's just some friendly guy.

Steven Soderbergh is a dick. He doesn't really glorify Che. He just paints him as boring and average, but also popular and humane towards his comrades and his enemies.

Not the slightest hint or mention of the executions and firing squads.

There is no explanation of the Cuban revolution, the philosophy behind it and the impact it left. In every scene, all the village people wave and cheer at the brave revolutionary soldiers. And Che simply plots strategy for his next attack against the military.

Not the slightest hint that the guy was a brutal killing machine.

Don't watch Che .. instead watch Andy Garcia's masterful The Lost City.
