Consensus: The second part of Soderbergh's biopic is a dark, hypnotic and sometimes frustrating portrait of a warrior in decline, with a terrific central performance from Del Toro.

Saying that a film has too much insight is hardly damning.

As a standalone film this is far less enjoyable than the first, but there is enough in here to engage and entertain for the duration.

Eye for Film

Certainly Soderbergh gives you a sense of the boredom of war - as the days tick by on the screen, you feel your own will to live begin to falter.

Twice as long as it needs to be, but it is also only half the movie it should have been.

Part Two is the more interesting film. ... Gorgeously shot in a lyrically linear style, with combat often depicted with carefully composed extreme long shots,

... a deeply interesting and commercially brave movie, one that recognizes the limits inherent in cinematic biography. It is meant to be experienced, not sounded for meanings, and is weakest when Soderbergh caves into his poetic impulses...

After the exhilaration of Part One, the mood of Part Two seems somber, almost funereal, but it's integral to the story.

Soderbergh has no interest in sentimentality, or back story, or even really in Guevara's philosophy, except as a rigorously footnoted onscreen reflection. Practically rejecting outright the concept of poetic license, Che is radical as a biopic.

The film's narrative flow is less driven by events, which are revealed in spurts, but are drawn along as their inevitable consequences.

A sprawling, epic look at the life of Che Guevara through the lense of Steven Soderbergh. Del Toro is brilliant in the lead.
Michael S
Doesn't really hold up to PART ONE, but still a very good piece of work and a mandatory companion to the first (greater) half of CHE.
