Good biopic about a heroic cause, a determined leader, and a difficult fight.
(Perhaps slightly idealized, and soapy domesticly.)

  • john_doh rated this: 3 stars out of 5.

I rated this above average mainly due to the story of Mr. Chavez. The acting was average, and the story a bit idealized/Hollywood, but it remains a compelling tale of how those who actually put our food on the table are treated, and fighting for some justice for them. That was an very powerful tale. While they won the battle they lost the war based on how workers are treated even today (better but still not fair- people want $.69 a pound tomatoes and they don't care if they are picked by slave labor or not). Mr. Chavez made people care, at least for a little while. While probably an idealized portrait, he seems like we was a good man fighting for justice.
