4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty sharp for a cheap dual-pack blu-ray April 1 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I try and avoid getting these combo pack blu-rays because I often find no effort goes into the transfer, they're simply DVD quality stamped onto a blu-ray so it displays in 1080p. However, Desperado is one of my favourites and this was the only way to get it on blu-ray, so I caved and got it and it actually looks pretty sharp and the sound is superb!
As for El Mariachi, it still looks and sounds like crap but hey, it had a budget of $7000 in the early 90's, so no amount of touching up is gonna fix that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Had it on VHS, needed on digital media Dec 30 2011
Format:Blu-ray
About the movie, you like or not. About the quality, it's not real 1080p. If you have it on DVD, there is no need to buy the blu-ray version, except for the fact there is two movies included.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great combo for those who have only seen Desperado Jan. 6 2012
By D. Knox - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Two movies for a great price. Now the movies: I have owned Desprado on DVD for a while and love the movie. I would give it more than five stars if I could. As for El Marachi surprisingly another fine Robert Rodriguez film. Frankly I never before had heard and believed that it was Desperado but in Spanish. I was wrong and found out what El's motivation for killing drug dealers came from. Thank goodness the film was transferred as is and was not ruined with a computerized enhancement. You see the grain of the film which added grittiness to the film. The only thing that I highly recommend that you turn on the English subtitles and listen to the original Spanish audio. The English dub track is Godawful you will enjoy the film much better. As an avid anime and Chinese Kung Fu fan I have heard worse dub tracks and this is the same. You will get more enjoyment and the translation of the subtitles give more depth to the story then listening to the dubbed audio. In wanting to match lips to dialog inevitably is butchered when English I'd synced to the film. All that said both films are trademark Robert Rodriguez movies. These are not masterpieces in need of an award, but they are great action films for guys to enjoy with humor mixed in with the blood and guts.

I am happy these were released together. Otherwise I most likely would have watched it on cable with the horrible English dub.

Even though it is said that Once Upon A Time In Mexico is the finale of the movies it does nothing but embarrass Robert Rodrigez. I am sure it was made with a bigger budget and they tried to make up for the poor script with some big named actors and blood and guts. These two are all you need to see IMHO

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Jan. 19 2011
By Teodor Markov - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
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.

Guitars and guns. What's not to like? Desperado looks and sounds great. El Mariachi is... well... El Mariachi. Rough, raw and unpolished.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rodriguez' Masterpieces March 23 2011
By M. Geissel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
These two movies are awesome. I had only seen "El Mariachi" in the original version with English subtitles before. This English version is dubbed very well (I hardly recognized that the voices are not original). Video quality is essentially not different from a DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Probably as good as it can be... Feb. 2 2011
By AJR - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The copy of El Mariachi is really rather poor quality, but it's probably about as good as it can be. I gather it's a telecine of a film copy of the original - hardly Bluray quality. It's interesting as the first film Robert Rodriguez made.

Desperado, by contrast, is much better quality. It is a sequel to El Mariachi, but clearly made with a much larger budget.

Having these two together is a much better deal than having El Mariachi by itself.
