This is an excellent blu ray. El Mariachi's source is not without its flaws, and it looks it, but most imperfections can largely be attributed to the low budget nature of the film and it certainly looks better than any previous home video release. Desperado, which had a substantially bigger budget, looks splendid on blu ray. The colors are vibrant, the blacks are strong, and contrast is good. As with El Mariachi, Desperado has never looked better. Pick this up if you're a fan of these movies, you will not be disappointed.
