As I watched this film for the first time, my two reactions were (a) I'll bet they all had fun making it and (b) is this a parody of the so-called "Spaghetti Westerns"? Essentially, there is no plot. El Mariachi (Antonio Banderas) seeks revenge from Bucho (Joaquim de Almeida) in a town which the drug dealer controls. EM enlists the support and assistance of Carolina (Selma Hayek) who owns and manages the local book store. (I'm not making this up.) No one eats or sleeps in this film. All of the action occurs during the day. There are a few crowd scenes but no one in the crowd seems to have any interest whatsoever in the fact that the street scenes are being filmed. There is one bar of special note. Cheech Marin is its host and bartender. (If you think the bar in Star Wars is unfriendly, this one makes it seem like the Palm Court at The Plaza in New York.) At one point, Quentin Tarantino briefly appears. Apparently he is involved in a drug deal which goes bad. Steve Buscemi also makes a brief appearance. Prudently, he decides not to become involved in the plot. (Where is Harvey Keitel?) EM is a one-man-army. Credit Rodriguez with brilliantly choreographing his creative and relentless carnage which leads up to the inevitable showdown with Bucho. Although most of this film makes no sense whatsoever, I found it thoroughly entertaining. It is on my Top Ten list of films to watch while consuming buttered popcorn, a box of Dots, and a cold beverage...or two.

Wow, must see, Antonio has done it again, and with his new movie Once upon a Time in Mexico, SWEET!!! He faces of a challeng where Bucho has killed his family and he wants revenge. Making blood banks all over. But really what makes you want to go crazy for, the guitar, or guitar case. He is a mexican mariachi looking for Bucho with a guitar case full of wepons. Now i don't want to spoil it, and you can also find once Upon a Time in Mexico with Antonio.

.This DVD is indeed a flipper. So don't let your little cousins touch this. This DVD includes commentary by Robert Rodriguez on both films. You could see the struggle he had in making el mariachi, and how easier it was to make Desperado. This DVD shows featurates on both films. It also has the trailers. You can really see the amazing prespective of these great films. A definite must.

This is supposed to be part of a trilogy, but it really is a barely connected duology.
I think you can forget about the first movie El Mariachi, interesting only if you figure that the movie cost only $7,500. Amazing really that it should have been a one star, based on cost. But the director created a relatively interesting film, that I would have given 3 stars to, but have to downgrade for violence and language to a 2 star. At best it is a rental if one wishes to see what started it all for this director and what lead into the best of the three, movie, Desperado. Banderas and Hayek were not in the first movie, so I see little to connect it to the other two movies.
The second movie in the trilogy is Desperado starring Antonio Banderas and Selma Hayek. Made in 1995, it seems to have grown in popularity over the years because of these two stars and the fact that this was a well funded and very well made movie. I liked Desperado enough to purchase it. This is not a family friendly movie. I give it 5 stars, rounded down to 4 stars because of lots of violence, bad language, nudity and simulated sex. But unlike Once Upon a Time in Mexico OUATIM, the banderas character is interesting to watch and rout for. Banderas is becoming one our better action stars not that he has turned in excellent performances in Zorro and the Thirteenth Warrior.
The third movie, Once Upon a Time in Mexico OUATIM, of the duology-trilogy is an uninspired, sometimes boring, excursion into senseless violence. I wanted Banderas to survive, couldn't have cared less about the smart-aleck Depp character and the story wasn't clear enough to try and follow. This is a 3 star movie rounded down to 2 stars for violence and language. There was no nudity.
Bottom line is that Desperado, the middle movie is a worthy addition to the collection for Banderas fans, the other two are not.

This is the package to get if you're thinking about checking out the two movies, "El Mariachi" and "Desperado." Why buy both separately when you can get them both for a great price? The "Desperado/El Mariachi" Collector's Box Set is a great offer that gives you plenty of action and thrills for a more than reasonable price. Not to mention that the set includes the "Special Edition" DVD versions of the two movies.
"El Mariachi" is the directorial debut from Robert Rodriguez that became an instant classic and received critical praise. The film is about a Mariachi who gets into trouble when a case of mistaken identity forces him into a violent and bloody conflict. "Desperado" is the sequel that's filled with outstanding shootouts and amazing action sequences. The film continues the story of the Mariachi and his plan for revenge. The two films together equal a very entertaining time.
Both of the DVDs included are "Special Editions" that are loaded with some cool extras. Extras that can be found on the DVDs are commentaries, featurettes, trailers and more. "Desperado" is mastered in High Definition and provides a very clear picture, while "El Mariachi" has a new film transfer that was supervised by the director.
This box set is really the way to go if you're thinking about purchasing the two movies. I have a feeling that the set will be even more popular with the recent release of "Once Upon a Time in Mexico." You get two great movies for a very low price. It's almost like paying for one DVD and getting the other one free. The "Desperado/El Mariachi" Collector's Box Set offers the best quality DVD versions of the two films. If you're looking for action and excitement, this is the place to be. A definite worthy purchase, if you want my opinion. -Michael Crane
