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

"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

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 subtitled features, but the bigger budget doesn't means it is better and sometimes the film feels more like a reboot than a sequel in it's story structure. Antonio Banderas is a sexier and more memorable presence than the Mexican hero from the original and this film made Salma Hayek a sex symbol which we should applaud. Danny Trejo do a memorable turn too as a knife throwing maniac, but Tar"
