Once Upon a Time in Mexico ()

directed by
featuring Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Johnny Depp, Mickey Rourke, Eva Mendes, Danny Trejo, Enrique Iglesias, Marco Leonardi, Cheech Marin, Rubén Blades, Willem Dafoe

Director Robert Rodriguez returns to the characters of his breakthrough hits El Mariachi and Desperado in this grand scale south-of-the-border action-adventure saga. Sands (Johnny Depp) is a rogue CIA agent who is working in cahoots with Mexican officials who've caught wind of a plan by corrupt military leader General Marquez (Gerardo Vigil) and ruthless drug kingpin Barillo (Willem Dafoe) to assassinate Mexico's president (Pedro Armendßriz Jr.). Sands needs to recruit a gunman to take out Barillo's assassins before they can complete their mission, and through barman Belini (Cheech Marin), Sands learns of El Mariachi (Antonio Banderas), a fabled musician turned vigilante with a remarkable talent for violence, and a score to settle with Marquez. El Mariachi is living quietly in hiding after the death of the woman he loved, Carolina (Salma Hayek), but Sands lures him back into action through the promise of a final showdown with his nemesis Marquez, forcing El Mariachi to retrieve his guitar case (containing a mighty arsenal) and once again do battle against the lawless. Robert Rodriguez not only directed Once Upon a Time in Mexico, but he wrote the screenplay, handled the camera work, edited the film, and composed the musical score. Mark Deming, Rovi Hide synopsis

'Once Upon A Time in Mexico'

by KLSummers on Jun 2, 2008

this film has absolutely everything you could possibly want. it has an amazing plot which turns on the catalystic character, Agent Sheldon Jeffrey Sands (Johnny Depp - who, coincidentally, came up with the name 'Sheldon Jeffrey' for his character), throughout, even though it is him who steers the whole film. the music is fantastic; absolutely brilliant guitarwork. it is, in my opinion, the best of the El Mariachi series, and frankly you don't have to see the other two to adore this one. i think that it has just about everything anyone would want in a film. there's a slight degree of comedy (although, i don't suppose it was intended at the initial writing. i think it is prominently Depp's lines that are quite funny - look out for them), and some truly great special effects. there's a lot of explosions and guns and action for people who like that kind of thing and (for the ladies) a glimpse of Johnny Depp in shorts. admittedly, a lot of it is in Spanish, but there are subtitles and, after a while, you do get used to it and it is very authentic. it has a brillaint cast and amazing stunts. it's not the most perfect film you'll ever see, but it's definately a great way to pass the time until you find it.
