Synopsis: Robert Rodriguez returns with the mythic guitar-slinging hero, El Mariachi (Antonio Banderas), in the final installment of the El Mariachi/Desperado trilogy. The saga continues as El Mariachi makes his way across a rugged landscape on the blood trail of Barrillo (Willem Dafoe), a cartel kingpin with one last score to settle who is planning a coup d'etat against the president of Mexico. Enlisted by Sands (Johnny Depp), a corrupt CIA agent, El Mariachi demands retribution, and the adventure begins against a backdrop of revolution, greed, and revenge.

Once Upon A Time In Mexico Review

Review: I went for the Depp, the Banderas, and the Hayek but I stayed for the eye-gouging.

Robert Rodrigues may never make an Oscar calibre film and for that I am thankful. He is off the low-budget, highly imaginative 70's ilk. Blood may fly, characters may die, but sequel and serials live on. THAT is one of the things I do love about a Rodriguez flick, he can have Danny Trejo show up and die in Desperado and when it comes time to cast a 'heavy' again, Rodriguez ghooses wisely and simply recasts Trejo without a thought to continuity.

That's a Mexi-can, not a Mexi-can't!

I'm telling you, this is just fun, a comic book of villains who are good and villains who are bad, but even the unsuspecting locals who populate the film seem to have an edge, a gun and a lot of attitude so no one is ever truly innocent in this little flick.

The fact that it is all shot on Digital Video really only becomes apparent to the typical film viewer when the CG explosions start going off and they appear cheesy, flimsy and without any effect on the environment around them.

Final Tally 3 stars out of 5.
