Desperado
1995
The first entry in director Robert Rodriguez's outlaw trilogy, El Mariachi chronicles the travails of a traveling musician who's mistaken for an assassin. In the follow-up Desperado, the mariachi returns to seek retribution against a drug lord.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Robert Rodriguez's first feature is a jaw-dropping achievement in ultra-low-budget filmmaking, a $7000 crime movie better than most thrillers Hollywood puts out every year. It's clever and well-choreographed as an action movie, and great entertainment.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

Not as fresh as El Mariachi or as weird as Once Upon a Time in Mexico, the weakest chapter in the series rarely rises above mediocrity. It succeeds largely on the superhuman charisma of Antonio Banderas, who was born to play this role.
