Movie Reviews

  • yet it's Pena's quietly powerful interpretation of Cesar Chavez the man that makes this movie work so well
    3 of 4 by Bill Zwecker [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • useful as a crash course in Chavez's main achievements, but this is the simplified version of a complicated and sometimes controversial story
    2 of 4 by Rafer Guzman [Newsday ]
  • the result, while inspirational, falls into the category of a conventional account of a great man. Cesar Chavez hits all the right notes but never attempts anything rash, daring, or extraordinary
    2.5 of 4 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • it's a clear and moving story, although the messier edges of the man have been smoothed out to fit the screen, and some of the victories may have been exaggerated to provide a happier ending
    2.5 of 4 by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger ]
  • enlivened by a strong cast, Cesar Chavez is a straightforward and inspiring account of a noble man
    3 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • as drama, however, it is an amateurish mess, with faltering direction and wooden acting
    2 of 4 by Tirdad Derakhshani [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • "Cesar Chavez" so fervently tries to be virtuous that it risks being dull. Dull it certainly is. But how virtuous?
    2 of 4 by Kyle Smith [New York Post ]
