The Liberator is an impressively scaled chronicle of the life and times of Simón Bolívar, hero of South American anti-colonialist struggles in the early 19th century.” – Dennis Harvey, Variety

The Liberator shoehorns the epic life of early 19th-century South American revolutionary Simón Bolívar into two hours of intermittently powerful cinema.” – Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com

“The exceptional life story and history that will be unfamiliar to most viewers keep the film absorbing, and then there’s the big plus of Ramírez in the title role.” – Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

The Liberator is the title of Alberto Arvelo’s enthralling Bolívar biopic, which serves as both an epic of struggle and a cinematic history lesson.” – Diana Sanchez, TIFF
