"...bring your guitars."

I managed to watch this film three times in two days this weekend. I can't believe just how fantastic it is, I had to bump it up a notch from my original 8/10 rating. I'm not sure what is stopping me giving it a straight 10 actually.

This film has everything. Stylish violence, fantastic gunfights, a legendary cast and potent eye candy to boot. This is one of Robert Rodriguez's earli... read more

Awfully entertaining action flick!

"It's strange how pulling a trigger is easier than playing the guitar. Easier to destroy, than to create."

After the unanticipated success of Robert Rodriguez's little known movie El Mariachi it was pure fate that a sequel would be instigated. In this case, Desperado is a reworking of the original film while also acting as a continuation of the story. El Mariachi was made on an asto... read more

Over the top awesome flick! Antonio Banderas plays El Mariachi; a man looking for not only work to fit his talent to entertainer, but a man who calls himself Bucho. This man took what he held dear right in front of him; a former girlfriend and put a decent size hole in his hand as well. Now, the legend of the Mariachi has come true and to a filthy mexican bar near you! After several shootouts left... read more

A Complete review of Robert Rodriguez's work (19 movies items)

" Cast : Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Steve Buscemi, Quentin Tarantino, Enrique Iglesias What was it about? A gunslinger is embroiled in a war with a local drug runner. My two cents: Even though Rodriguez definitely got noticed thanks to 'El Mariachi', it is actually really with this flick that he became really noticed by the mainstream audience. Indeed, even though the budget was still rather modest (approximately $7 million), it was still 1000 times the amount of money Rodriguez spent to"

Movie Reviews (951-1000) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: American sequel that made the legend of El Mariachi more accessible to an audience who don't see anything else than English talking features. Antonio Banderas is a sexier and more memorable presence than the Mexican hero from the original. It made Salma Hayek a sex symbol. Danny Trejo started his career as a Robert Roderiquez regular here and is memorable as a knife throwing maniac. The Downs: Bigger Budget doesn't means it is better. It was heavily censored and a lot of the blood a"

200 & 99 Of My Favorite Films From The 1990's (299 movies items)

"Robert Rodriguez's "El Mariachi," goes from micro-budget indie to macro-budget hit as the traveling gunslinging guitarrero goes from looking like a Mexican everyman to looking like a Spaniard, well, Antonio Banderas. Who, even speaking as a straight-up hetero, you gotta admit.... is a really good looking guy. Which is probably the main reason why the gal that the hero gets in this flick is played by the always insanely-beauteous Salma Hayek. Kinda makes me wish I was good-looking. Maybe then, I"
