My rating: 2.5 stars out of 4

After finding success in Cuban, Guevara quits and heads to Bolivia to help them fight for the same reasons. He cobbles together a small army but has trouble convincing them that a foreigner really cares for their plight. When the fighting finally begins they are overwhelmingly outnumbered by the Bolivian regular army. The bleak, mountainous setting of Bolivia contrasts nicely with the Cuban landscape of part one, but the film suffers from the same listlessness.
