Editorial Reviews

Leaping back into action, gun-slinging, guitar-toting hero "El Mariachi" is back in town in ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO, as writer/director Robert Rodriguez delivers the epic final chapter of his pulp Western trilogy. Now remastered in high definition for Blu-ray™ starring Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Johnny Depp, Mickey Rourke, Eva Mendes, Danny Trejo, Enrique Iglesias, Rubén Blades and Willem Dafoe, ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO is a full-frontal assault.

Customer Reviews

Good action movie.
Lotus Flower
In this way the audience cannot get very involved in the plot (improbable as it is) because the main character is removed from really caring.
Arne Andersen
I'm usually a big action movie guy but this one is just a bad bad attempt.

In Once Upon a Time in Mexico, writer/director Robert Rodriguez (Desperado, Spy Kids, From Dusk Til Dawn) revisits characters he created and introduced with the low budget, but highly enjoyable, 1992 release of El Mariachi and followed up on in 1995's Desperado.
Antonio Banderas returns as El Mariachi, reprising his the role from Desperado that made him a name in Hollywood. Also included is Selma Hayak as Carolina, Johnny Depp as the corrupt CIA operative Agent Sands, Willem Dafoe as a cartel drug kingpin Barillo, Mickey Rourke, Eva Mendes, Enrique Egelsias, Cheech Marin, Ruben Blades, and character actor Danny Trejo.
The plot, as I understood it, involved a complicated scheme to overthrow the president of Mexico, and who would end up assuming power in the vacuum that follows. Agent Sands was particularly involved in this, seeming to work both ends for his own profit. El Mariachi is recruited by Sands to eliminate the general hired by the leader of the drug cartel to assassinate the president. The reason Sands contacted El Mariachi for this is due to a past, unresolved conflict between El Mariachi and the general. Sounds complicated? At some point, you may have to just go along with the movie, accept all the little subplots, and enjoy the ride. And a fun ride at that.
The action is wonderful in this movie but scenes choreographed and shot beautifully, with associated scenery adding real texture and depth to the proceedings. The characters, especially Agent Sands (Johnny Depp) are fun to watch, and the bullets do fly. Explosions, bodies flying, action flowing in and out...there are few dull moments in this film.
The main problem I had with the movie is the plot just got too convoluted.

I say this in the title simply because Depp steals the show. Everyone, they all did a great job, didn't come close to Depp's portral of Agent Sands. He is the movie and everyone else is along for the ride.
OK let me explain the plot. This person is double crossing this person, who in turn wants to be with this person and to have this one thing at the end. But this other person double crosses this person because they have a diffrent agenda while the lead only has revenge to look foward to. This complet different person hires this other group of people kill this other group of people, only for things to backfire.
With me so far? So the plot is little bit muddled. Who care!?!?! It's an action movie. And the action flies high and fast. At the core Banderes and Hayak sees most of the action largly due to some rather crazy and over-the-top flashbacks. The action is where this movie is at. This is the only place you can see someone change directions in the air due to a well placed gunshot blast to the chest. Very nice.
This isn't to say the script is completly bad. The movie has its share of great lines and dialoge, just that takes a back sent to the action.
The disc is very nicely done. (A preview of Hellboy is even on there. One of my must sees for the next year.

The best time to watch Once Upon a Time in Mexico is right after watching Desperado. There are lots of in-jokes and references you'll miss unless the first movie is pretty fresh in your memory. (Check out Carolina's shoes, for instance.)
Unfortunately, this is also the worst time to watch it, because I found myself comparing the two, and unfortunately the sequel doesn't live up to its predecessor's promise.
OUaTiM starts out well enough, reusing some of the characters in such a way that really gives the story a the feel of a fable promised by the title. That quickly gives way to extremely contrived and senseless political plots. El Mariachi's motivations are part revenge, part nationalistic pride, which greatly muddies things. His foe, General Marquez, is a caricature, which would be fine if Rodriguez had stuck with the fable style. Plus, El Mariachi is almost a supporting character, and his charming presence from Desperado is sorely missed. Depp's character, Agent Sands, is very entertaining, but his storyline felt rather muddled.
However, it's fun to see Banderas and Sayek together again. She looks fantastic, by the way. The music is really pretty good and the production values are good. There's enough action to keep your interest, even as you're wishing for more substance.

Once again Johnny Depp has 'saved' a movie from going completely bad. If it wasn't for him, I'd give this move zero stars. The story line skips around alot, their isn't much dialoge, and the casting is terrible! For example, Enrique Iglesias plays a gun-fighting super hero with really bad acting skills! However, what makes the movie worth two stars is the hilarious character Johnny Depp plays, Sans. With his unforgetable line, "Here, would you like to try my pork?" makes this the only good thing in the movie. Other than that, it's a dud.
