What I thought during most of it: youtube.com/watch?v=AL8chWFuM-s As if Carlos, his team and the raids and acts they committed were to OPEC what hostile bacteria are to a superior immune system, able to adapt on all fronts and confront, isolate and ultimately eradicate said bacteria, dooming them from the start without them either knowing it or being able to change to a lane averting that fate, given the limitations of their own nature. Somewhat by the numbers, but effective nonetheless.

I watched the "abbreviated" US edition - coming in at a quick 2 hours and 45 minutes. Unfortunately, that length still didn't seem long enough. The story felt jumbled and things just happened. I get the feeling they quite literally just did a quick edit of the much longer mini-series, but those edits were too much. Beautifully shot and stylistically on point, the story is incredible and I wanted to like this a lot more than I did. Ultimately I lost interest in the last 40 minutes.

I seem to really like films that start with the letter C. The miniseries makes Carlos seem like if Michael Corleone was a fat dumbass in comparison to the film, so the film makes him less cantankerous.

Glamorously stylish while morally ugly, Carlos is perhaps one of the best thrillers ever made. Spanning three decades and filled with post-punk music, it's an oft-masterful take on a genre that often feels played out, but in Assayas' hands, it's enthralling and bold. Edgar Ramirez is superb.

Assayas is more interested in the character of Carlos; the ultimate lesson to be taken from the film is that the politics never really mattered, that Carlos' self-involvement was the key to the story. The individual acts almost seem to lack context. They work as scenes in an action thriller, but you wouldn't watch Carlos to learn about revolutionary thought. Nonetheless, Carlos is a triumph of epic film making, with a terrific performance from Édgar Ramírez.

Interesting choice of material for Assayas, as it doesn't play to his strengths. There is a great party scene around the beginning (before it's interrupted by jarring violence and digital blood), and I appreciated the sensuality of the sequence where Carlos seduces his future wife, but it's perfunctorily directed - more of an entertaining political drama than an accomplished artistic work. Seek out instead his less conventional and superior films, Demon Lover, Boarding Gate and Irma Vep.

Long-winded recounting of the story of one of the most famous revolutionaries of the twentieth century, which does a fine job to capture the political mood of the 1970s, a mixture of determination to make change by any means possible, yet at the same time completely oblivious both of the cost to bystanders and the ambitiousness of the goal. Probably better to see the mini-series than this cut-down version, although I haven't.

Watched it over two nights, couldn't sit down and watch over 300 minutes in one go, but the time invested in it was well worth it. Has a similar feel to it as Mesrine films, a film about an interesting person and how they came to be.

Part 1: 65, Part 2: 80, Part 3 55. Part 2 is the only film here. It certainly is an exciting couple of hours - brilliantly written, acted and directed. Part 1 is good too but it makes part 3 necessary, which doesn't warrant anywhere near 2 hours of film. By that stage I simply didn't care what happened to Carlos.

Assayas didn't let ideas to cover the real thing. He manages to show the facts without imposing his/some group's ideology. It makes you think even a day or two after.

Even at 5½ hours it's perhaps too concerned with outlining the main historical bullet-points and doesn't take enough time to tell us about Carlos the person. Like Soderbergh's "Che", the director's desire to remain a neutral observer and not condemn or glorify leaves it feeling a little cold and detached. Still, it's an impressive effort. Ramirez is great and the excellent soundtrack gives the film an energy and momentum that doesn't lag for the entire duration. (Mini-series version.)

At 5 1/2 hours it still only feels like a snapshot. It jumps in time so much, especially down the stretch of part three, that it's fairly disjointed. I can only imagine how slight the theatrical version must have been. It's a fascinating character study that neither praises nor condemns the man or his actions or motivations. It takes a lot of restraint to simply show a story and allow the audience to make up its mind but Assayas does that here.

24 temmuz 12 & Carlos, beş buçuk saatlik akıcı bir biyografik- tarihi- politik film nasıl olurmuş ders niteliğinde bir iş. Assayas, ritim konusunda iyi. Filmin okuması bir de narsizm &libido üzerinden yapılabilr. Başarılı bir terör eylemi sonrası ayna karşısında penisini sıvazlayan Carlos.

An incredibly informative and surprisingly entertaining account of the life of an international terrorist. Edgar Ramirez is unforgettable as the charismatic, intelligent, slightly-crazy revolutionary... a great way to spend five and a half hours.
