Of interest to those who study JFK/Cuban intrigues

Interesting movie about a little known aspect of the Cuban revolution and Fidel Castro and the involvement of a US citizen who was his girlfriend and later an assassin trained to kill him. Not sure how accurate it is historically, but the character played by Gabirelle Anwar of Burn Notice fame (this predates Burn Notice) was also connected to a group of CIA operatives said to be involved with the assasination of JFK.
Worth a watch esp if you are a JFK conspiracy theorist and like comparing this account to other info available on the web about the woman portrayed in this movie. Not a great technical piece of work, done inexpensively, hence only 4 stars. Found it in the 5 $ bin at Walmart, but worth it.

I enjoyed this movie, Gabrielle Anwar is a great actress. Joe Mantegna played his part well, and a good
resemblance to Castro. Great casting.
