Once Upon a Time in Mexico


onceuponatimeinmexicoThe third part of the trilogy that began with El Mariachi (1992) sees the guitar-playing desperado (Antonio Banderas) lured out of retirement to stop a Mexican general from overthrowing the President after his decision to destroy a drug cartel. Director Robert Rodriguez does his best to entertain us in lieu of a coherent story; thereā€™s much gunplay, things blow up, the heat is generally on and thereā€™s a bunch of recognizable actors to enjoy. Johnny Depp is fun as a CIA agent, but not for a second do I really care about whatā€™s going on in this film.

Widescreen.Ā Written, directed, shot, chopped, scored and designed byĀ Robert Rodriguez.Ā Cast:Ā Antonio Banderas (El Mariachi), Salma Hayek (Carolina), Johnny Depp (Sheldon Sands), Mickey Rourke, Eva Mendes, Danny Trejoā€¦ Enrique Iglesias, Cheech Marin, Ruben Blades, Willem Dafoe, Pedro ArmendĆ”riz.
