"All I wanted was to be a mariachi, like my ancestors. But the city I thought would bring me luck brought only a curse. I lost my guitar, my hand, and her. With this injury, I may never play the guitar again. Without her, I have no love. But with the dog and the weapons, I'm prepared for the future."

Like everyone else, I have been following Robert Rodriguez for many years and I thought it was finally time to watch his directing debut. First of all, before judging this flick, you have to bear in mind the circumstances during which it was directed. Indeed, it was made on one shoe-string budget (allegedly 7000 dollars, although the post-production and promotion did cost 1 million dollars), Rodri... read more

Simply Bad Ass.

Because of the severe financial restraints of this picture, the story is forced to be told thru the creativity of all-out action in it's purest, unadulterated form. I think that there should be a law requiring that all big budget action films be shot & directed with as much energy & fun as in this one, before even one cent of the million dollars of special effects is spent.
Cool, vi... read more

"28.4. DVD (rewatch) Tää oli ensimmäinen elokuva minkä lisäsin listalissa listalle. Vuosi oli 2012 ja asiat oli oikein hienosti. Nykytilanteesta en niin tiedä."

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

" This is the "Evil Dead" of action movies - a 16mm lowbudget action movie that is hugely entertaining with a lot of inventive camera angles and huge amounts of blood. The film feels realistic and has a nice bunch of faces and (to me) unknown Mexican faces. The only scene that rings untrue is when our hero runs up a car hood and the villains stupidly shoot themselves. "

"Because of the severe financial restraints of this picture, the story of the the guitar-strumming, gun-toting wanderer known as El Mariarchi is forced to be told thru the creativity of all-out action in it's purest, most unadulterated form. I think that there should be a law requiring that all big budget action films be shot and directed with as much energy and fun as in this sparsely financed dynamo, before even one cent of the million dollars of special effects is spent. Cool, violent and high"
