"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!"
Don't forget the first one to...

"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..."
Great action film with a bit of humor.

"How could anyone not love this film? It's got more of the wonderful action we saw in Desperado and the same great humor. Depp was amazing. Who couldn't appreciate the humor of him wearing the CIA shirt out in public or the little lines like "Are you a Mexi-Can or a Mexi-Can't?" As for those who say it's "Unbelievable" It's fiction...It's supposed to dance on the edge of unbelievable...else it wouldn't be fiction. The only beef I have with thte film is the repeat of the "you killed my woman, prepare to die" idea. Great film though, well worth your time...try to see Desperado first though."
