Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Great action movie with excellent cast Feb. 6 2004
Format:DVD
Once Upon A Time in Mexico is the third movie in the El Mariachi trilogy and a fitting end for it. While the plot can be confusing, it is not as bad as some reviewers made it out to be. If you pay attention, you'll be fine. A CIA agent is trying to stop an assassination by hiring El Mariachi. The man behind the assassination of the president of Mexico is Barillo, a drug kingpin trying to take control of the country. There are numerous subplots with plenty of backstabbing and betrayals that are too many too mention. There are plenty of great, over-the-top action scenes here that will blow you away. The movie has tons of great characters, some more well-developed than others. Also, director Robert Rodriguez shot this film beautifully in Mexico making it that much more enjoyable.
Antonio Banderas returns as the brooding gunman, El Mariachi, who is seeking revenge against a rogue general, Marquez. Why he is seeking revenge is revealed in flashback. Banderas is perfect once again in the role. Johnny Depp steals every scene he is in as Agent Sands, the sarcastic, psychotic CIA agent. He has too many one-liners to mention. Salma Hayek has little to do here, but who cares, she looks gorgeous. The impressive cast includes Mickey Rourke, Eva Mendes, Willem Dafoe, Danny Trejo, Cheech Marin, Ruben Blades, and Enrique Iglesias. The DVD offers commentary by Rodriguez, two featurettes, deleted scenes, widescreen presentation, and several other worthwhile extras. This is a great over the top action movie that never slows down from beginning to end. The finale with Agent Sands has to be seen. For a great action movie with an excellent cast, check out Once Upon a Time in Mexico!

3.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Depp Steals the Show Again Jan. 31 2004
By kurlebj
Format:DVD
Well, where to begin. Once Upon A Time In Mexico or El Mariachi 3 is, I regret to say, a very disapointing sequel to the outstanding Desperado. While there are some memorable scenes, most of the movie carries through with a lot of nonsense and un-entertaining drabble.
The star of this movie, no matter what the credits read, is Johnny Depp. Depp is proving to be quite the comedic and action force in movies lately, Pirates of the Carribean, Sleepy Hollow and From Hell, just to name a few. He is a wonderful talent and a pleasure to watch any time he's on screen. However, even with his much needed help, this movie lacks punch and more importantly interest. I just found myself not interested a lot of times and that hurts anyone's viewing of a movie.
There are a few good things that work in the movie, and that is, the aforementioned performance by Depp, some cool special effects, namely the scene when Depp is, umm, hurt. (Those who saw the film will know what I mean - didn't want to add any spoilers), and there is some good dialogue here and there.
Unfortunetly, the bad out weigh the good, with boring strung out scenes, some absurd action scenes and not enough of El Mariachi himself, kicking around bad guys. Also, a dramatic backstory for Selma Hayek (complete with flashbacks) is poorly done.
This film had a lot potential and hype before it was released, with an all star cast including Mickey Rourke and Willem Dafoe in supporting roles, but the train just ran out of steam. Rent it for Johnny Depp and to draw your own conclusions but I think you're going to find that this is one to leave on the shelf.
Two and a half stars out of five.

I was amazed when watching this movie. The film I have to admit is more stylish than "Pulp Fiction" and "Kill Bill". There is alot more action and suspense (well not a lot of suspense). Johnny Depp up until recently, never struck me as an awesome actor. He was alright, but not the best. He was good in Edward Scissorhands but he was horrible in Sleepy Hollow. In "Pirates of the Caribbean" he was great, but in "...Mexico" he is amazing! He really is a talented actor. Antonio Banderas as usual is brooding as usual. He doesn't really do anything special except in the gun battles. Salma Hayek, oh!! don't even get me started on her! Apparently if I remember correctly she lived at the end of Desperado (correct me if I'm wrong) but also apparently she has died in between Desperado and ...Mexico. So she is in here only for the sake of flashback sequences which sucks! I was expecting a better performance! I was disappointed, but I didn't let that small factor dampen my spirits. On another level, the gun battles are really cool, but are a little too fake, like when people go flying in the air from being shot, it seems too unrealistic! Overall, this is a good way to spend 1 hour 40 minutes, but if you're looking for another Salma Hayek sex scene like in Desperado, watch Desperado again because there is no sex or nudity in this movie which is a good thing because it would have ruined the movie. watch this movie now!

5.0 out of 5 stars shot,chopped and scored... Nov. 10 2004
By M-C
Format:DVD
WOW! I have just watched Once upon a time in Mexico for the second time in a row today!I rented it mainly because any movie with johnny depp in it intrests me as he is my fave actor. Boy was I not disappointed! Johnny was fantastic! Funny, sexy, scary, intresting....is there nothing he cnt do! Not only was Johnny Depp amazing but I found myself enthralled by the story and the whole legacy of El Mariachi. How cool is this film? I think cool is the word to describe this film as it doesn't take itself too seriously but still manages to be taken seriously. It's basically just fun all the way with intersting characters, fantastic shootouts and the coolest accessory eva. Who would have thought a guitar case could be so effective? I loved the music and how Banderas plays even in the middle of a shootout. Intersting fact did u know that Johnny Depp scored his own theme for Agent Sands called Sands theme? He plays the guitar himself.
For anyone in need of a thouraghly entertaining film watch this movie. It will get u talking about it for ages just like me.. I'm off to watch El Mariachi and Desperado now......
