Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A well-cast, well-intentioned movie that falls into the trap that often awaits film biographies of brave and widely admired individuals.
Fresh: It should have been made 40 years ago, but this biopic about the Mexican-American leader who spearheaded the fight for farmworkers' rights couldn't be more timely.
Rotten: As a filmmaker, Luna is still finding his voice. For all he effectively puts on screen in "Cesar Chavez," Luna never gets past his respect for the accomplishments to give us a true measure of the man.
Rotten: The film is always a little bit at a distance, almost involving, always good enough to make us root for it, but rarely better than average.
I really liked this movie
And I'm proud to say I'm a Mexican American from the Imperial Valley!
Come on! This movie is not even critically acclaimed. Enough with the liberal propaganda specials!
A True Inspiration
I can't wait to see it again.
