Movie Reviews

Deserves a wider audience
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A great historical theme movie that covers mexico's civil war.
The acting is superb, the chemestry invokes your passions.
Not only for the romantic scenes in the movie, that is.
The rich landowners Injustice and ignorance fuels the uprising of the peasants, who elect a modest, justice seeking peon out of their midst as their leader: Emiliano Zapata.
Bound not on vengeance but social consience, he journeys with
the peasents against Mexico's corrupt regime, making his mark on history. The battle scenes are realisticly depicted, the violence not overdramatised . A refreshing departure from the current "hollywood special effect" spectacle.
The miniseries should have been longer, because the armed struggle contains a lot of untold drama, that the budged had to compromise on. Nevertheless, a must see for all lovers of historical theme movies."
Interesting and exciting
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I did not know much about Zapata before I watched this movie. It is an exiting story about the revolutionary Zapata. The true story has been spiced up a bit by adding romance. I liked the movie a lot - 4,5 hours with good entertainment - "telenovela" style!"
Historical biography ?
(3 out of 5 stars)

"When I saw the comercial of this historical "telenovela" epic, I was very interested in watching it since I had finished reading various biographies of Emiliano Zapata. However, it began as a telenovela and had too many inaccuracies. Especially the way it showed that he was not interested in his wife, Josefa until she proved herself to him. In reality she was not into him, and her family never aproved of him because of their social standing,until he became General of the Rebel army did her family accept him into the family. All in all, if you want an accurate historical biography you must look into it yourself and come up with your own conclusions."
This movie made me want to get up off my duff and cheer

"Sometimes I think old Mexico has lost its soul, but then something like this apparently made-for-TV movie comes out, and I'm completely thrown. Bichir is unbelievably good, as is the entire cast. And the director deserves some sort of medal of honor. I'm just heartsick knowing that IMDB doesn't even list this movie. If you've got a drop of Mexican blood in your veins, or even just like Mexican food, you really need to see this wonderful little film. Bravo all involved!"
