DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure - Being a continuation of the Desperado story, it has lots of brutal killing, gun battles and other action, but it's not all action like Desperado was. It's over-the-top story is often very unrealistic and far-fetched, but fun. It's certainly targeted at young males.

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "Once Upon a Time in Mexico sometimes feels as if he's winging it, but you have to admit he has an instinctive, exuberant feel for moving images. I am not sure a thoughtful and coherent story can be made using his methods, but maybe that's not what he's interested in doing.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Average "If not quite a one-man show, Rodriguez's mini-epic is something close to it — he wrote, directed, produced, scored, edited ('chopped,' in his parlance), designed the production and did many of the special effects. Fortunately he resisted the temptation to star,...''

Newsday  Full Review
Above Average "The experience of Once Upon a Time in Mexico is sad, actually, because it starts with such promise, big laughs and a big sense of fun. You could, of course, watch the first half and leave."

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Very mixed to say the least. About half enjoyed it very much, rating it "Fantastic" to "Very Good." Half of the remaining half rated it "Good," which indicates an "average" movie (good but not great). The remaining opinions came in very low. Clearly many didn't enjoy it much at all. Although these opinions are very mixed, I would still feel confident recommending this movie. I believe most will find it to be entertaining, at least to some degree.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
This continuation of the Desperado story is very similar to the original with lots of gun battle action, brutal killings and some dark humor. It doesn't seem to have quite as much action as the original but I believe the story is more appealing and should interest a somewhat broader audience than its target audience of young males.

If you enjoyed Desperado then go see Once Upon A Time In Mexico. I'm confident you'll enjoy it.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The new adventure is set against a backdrop of revolution and greed. Haunted and scarred by loss, El Mariachi (Antonio Banderas) has retreated into a life of isolation. He is forced out of hiding by Sands (Johnny Depp), a corrupt CIA agent. Sands recruits the reclusive hero to sabotage a plot by the evil cartel kingpin Barillo (Willem Dafoe), who is planning to assassinate the president of Mexico. El Mariachi has his own reasons for returning - retribution and revenge.

Now, together with his capable cohorts Lorenzo (Enrique Iglesias) and Fideo (Marco Leonardi) the legend of El Mariachi attains new levels of excitement.
