Once Upon a Time in Mexico
Guns, guns, guns! And a few explosions as bodies fly through the air and crash into tables and fruit stands. Once Upon a Time in Mexico, like all Robert Rodriguez movies, is all about the kinetic kick of high-velocity action. Johnny Depp, blase and whimsical, plays a CIA agent who's drawn guitar-playing gun-slinger Antonio Banderas (long black hair flopping over his face like the ears of a Labrador puppy) into a ridiculously convoluted plot to overthrow the Mexican government. Along for the ride are a craggy-faced rogue's gallery including Willem Dafoe, Mickey Rourke, Danny Trejo, Ruben Blades, and (to balance things out) the smooth, tantalizing complexions of Eva Mendes and Salma Hayek. For sheer trashy fun, Once Upon a Time in Mexico is a step down from its predecessor, Desperado--but Desperado set the bar pretty high. For coherent storytelling, look elsewhere, but for action razzle-dazzle, this is your movie. --Bret Fetzer

Desperado
It's Sergio Leone meets Sam Peckinpah meets Quentin Tarantino in this ultraviolent, mythological shoot-'em-up by auteur Robert Rodriguez. In Desperado, Rodriguez creates larger-than-life, genre-tweaking stock characters and puts them through their paces. As they stride bravely through an Old West lightly dusted with camp humor, they're periodically called upon to nimbly dodge bullets and fireballs through outrageously choreographed displays of Hollywood pyrotechnics. In this bigger-budget semi-remake/semi-sequel to Rodriguez's indie sensation, El Mariachi (made, famously, for $7,000), Antonio Banderas is the darkly charismatic El Mariachi, the Mysterious Stranger in town; Steve Buscemi is perfectly cast as his weasely, motor-mouth Comic Sidekick, laying the groundwork for El Mariachi's entrance by spinning saloon stories to build up his legend; Cheech Marin is a standout as the Bartender, who really knows how to handle a toothpick; and gorgeous Salma Hayek is, well, the Girl--treated to the kind of full-blown, slow-mo introduction the movies traditionally lavish on beautiful new stars. It doesn't add up to much, but it's a kick. Be careful not to blow out your speakers with the DVD's Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. --Jim Emerson

Product Description

The second chapter of Robert Rodriguez's El Mariachi series brings the gunslingin' Mariachi man face to face with a Mexican drug lord in Desperado (Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek. 1995/103 min.) while the third and final part puts the Rodriguez hero in the right place to finally avenge his slain family in Once Upon a Time in Mexico (Antonio Banderas, Johnny Depp. 2003/102 min.). 2 DVDs. Color/R.

5.0 out of 5 stars Are you a MexiCan or a MexiCant? February 8, 2004
Format:DVD
This is not the type of film that will delve into your deep psyche and come up with something profound.
It's guns, action and more guns.
In my opinion Johnny Depp absolutely steals every single scene he is in. He's got his character, Sands, down and you can tell he's really into his role.
Antonio Banderas is excellent at reprsing his role as el Mariachi and Salma Hayek is great eye candy and does faboulous stunt work!
Grab this DVD, kick back and enjoy the ride!

5.0 out of 5 stars BOTH FLICKS ARE INCREDIBLE! January 23, 2004
Format:DVD
THIS IS THE NEW 2 PACK RELEASED THIS PAST TUESDAY AND BROTHER, WHAT A RIDE! DESPERADO IS A KILLER OF A FLICK, BUT ONCE UPON A TIME.......JUST TAKES IT A FEW STEPS FURTHER! EVERYONE IS WONDERFUL, AS IS THE HIGH DEFINITION DIGITAL TRANSFER--BUT JOHNNY DEPP AS THE CORRUPT CIA AGENT SANDS, ONCE AGAIN, STEALS THE SHOW! HE IS INCREDIBLE RUTHLESS AND SO MUCH EVIL FUN! THE ACTION SEQUENCES ARE TERRIFIC AS IS WONDERFUL, COLORFUL MEXICO. DO NOT MISS EITHER FILM, OR GO FOR THE HANDSOMELY PACKAGED NEW 2 PACK! THEY BOTH GOT ME SO FIRED UP, I'VE ONLY BEEN WATCHING THEM ONE AFTER THE OTHER SINCE TUESDAY! JUST ORDERED "EL MARIACHI" AT A GREAT PRICE-HAVE NEVER SEEN IT SO I AM EAGERLY WAITING DELIVERY ON MONDAY! I THINK ROBERTO RODRIGUEZ IS A FAR MORE TALENTED DIRECTOR THAN EVEN TARANTINO! HE IS SO VISIONARY, RAW, AND FULL OF WILD IMAGINATION. NOT TO BE MISSED.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't forget the first one to... February 19, 2004
By .
Format:DVD
Both of these movies are amazing, though I was all too happy that I was able to see El Mariachi before either of them. The first movie was done almost entirely volunteer with a budget that barely covered the cost of the ammunition -- and yes, at that shockingly low price-tag -- it was that good that it rated two sequels!
Lots of southwest machismo flavor, guns, musicians, tragic love, what more could one want from a movie aiming for the top of the genre.
Desperado first disjointedly continues from El Mariachi (believe me, if you saw E.M. first, you would have at least a few confused moments when viewing Desperado the first time). Once Upon a Time in Mexico picks up from where Desperado left off and the flash backs throughout the third movie do a reasonable job and tying the series together. The plots for all three are fantastical and legend, but all three movies work the genre style for all they are worth and end up way way way on top. Did I mention the astounding cast? It's not just the stars -- they've pulled out some pretty legendary supporting actors to boot.
Five stars for the fact that in addition to being astoundingly fabulous movies -- each one of the three is able to stand as a solid movie unto itself without the other two. Four stars for the set -- only because the set doesn't include El Mariachi, which I think everyone should watch at least a few times. I think it is about time that El Mariachi garners due royalties along with its American companion sequels...

Antonio Banderas is smoking and super badass. Can any of the bad guys stand a chance against this fiery badass romeo? I reckon not.

5.0 out of 5 stars great entertainment August 26, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the acting in Once Upon a Time in Mexico. It was a little bit more bloody, than the usual movie that I watch, but

it was interesting, and I liked the story. When you put that cast together, you had me at the get go.
