"THIS IS THE NEW 2 PACK RELEASED THIS PAST TUESDAY AND BROTHER, WHAT A RIDE! DESPERADO IS A KILLER OF A FLICK, BUT ONCE UPON A TIME.......JUST TAKES IT A FEW STEPS FURTHER! EVERYONE IS WONDERFUL, AS IS THE HIGH DEFINITION DIGITAL TRANSFER--BUT JOHNNY DEPP AS THE CORRUPT CIA AGENT SANDS, ONCE AGAIN, STEALS THE SHOW! HE IS INCREDIBLE RUTHLESS AND SO MUCH EVIL FUN! THE ACTION SEQUENCES ARE TERRIFIC AS IS WONDERFUL, COLORFUL MEXICO. DO NOT MISS EITHER FILM, OR GO FOR THE HANDSOMELY PACKAGED NEW 2 PACK! THEY BOTH GOT ME SO FIRED UP, I'VE ONLY BEEN WATCHING THEM ONE AFTER THE OTHER SINCE TUESDAY! JUST ORDERED "EL MARIACHI" AT A GREAT PRICE-HAVE NEVER SEEN IT SO I AM EAGERLY WAITING DELIVERY ON MONDAY! I THINK ROBERTO RODRIGUEZ IS A FAR MORE TALENTED DIRECTOR THAN EVEN TARANTINO! HE IS SO VISIONARY, RAW, AND FULL OF WILD IMAGINATION. NOT TO BE MISSED."

"Both of these movies are amazing, though I was all too happy that I was able to see El Mariachi before either of them. The first movie was done almost entirely volunteer with a budget that barely covered the cost of the ammunition -- and yes, at that shockingly low price-tag -- it was that good that it rated two sequels!Lots of southwest machismo flavor, guns, musicians, tragic love, what more could one want from a movie aiming for the top of the genre.Desperado first disjointedly continues from El Mariachi (believe me, if you saw E.M. first, you would have at least a few confused moments when viewing Desperado the first time). Once Upon a Time in Mexico picks up from where Desperado left off and the flash backs throughout the third movie do a reasonable job and tying the series together. The plots for all three are fantastical and legend, but all three movies work the genre style for all they are worth and end up way way way on top. Did I mention the astounding cast? It's not just the stars -- they've pulled out some pretty legendary supporting actors to boot.Five stars for the fact that in addition to being astoundingly fabulous movies -- each one of the three is able to stand as a solid movie unto itself without the other two. Four stars for the set -- only because the set doesn't include El Mariachi, which I think everyone should watch at least a few times. I think it is about time that El Mariachi garners due royalties along with its American companion sequels..."

"This is not the type of film that will delve into your deep psyche and come up with something profound. It's guns, action and more guns.In my opinion Johnny Depp absolutely steals every single scene he is in. He's got his character, Sands, down and you can tell he's really into his role. Antonio Banderas is excellent at reprsing his role as el Mariachi and Salma Hayek is great eye candy and does faboulous stunt work!Grab this DVD, kick back and enjoy the ride!"

"Why didn't they release this DVD with a Spanish audio track? You can watch this great DVD in French and English but not in Spanish, even though most of the cast is probably Mexican. The movie itself is great. The director is amazing. What an omission. The only reason I switched to DVD's is you can watch them in more than one language."
