Storyline

By the first time, Simon Bolivars story is been told from the perspective about the man, not the heroe but the human been itself; with his weakness and troubles that led him to think even in death. Based on one of the most dramatic years at Libertadors life, between May 1815 and May 1816, can be seen the man without the uniform, the man who suffered a rough exile on Jamaica, in the midst the loneliness and the penury from a young man who though he have failed.

so boring!
28 November 2013 | by alirioaristiguetaSee all my reviews

I have never reviewed a film before but i really think this one deserves it. Because spending more than 5 minutes watching it,is really something terrifyng. I love watching movies from another countries and cultures , also i love history and that is why i went to watch Bolivar. There were no people in the line, i should have suspected something, but i did not. I was practically alone in the room but that is OK when it is a good film. Finally, the movie started...i just have to say i fall sleep after 20 minutes, it was absolutely boring, and th actor that plays the main role is probably the worst actor ever....Uf, what a waste of time!!!
