Ratings & Reviews

  1. Vytautas Abromaitis's rating of the film El Mariachi

    But Robert's passion for film-making is impossible to be put under a rating.

  2. Paolo Utili's rating of the film El Mariachi

  3. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film El Mariachi

    This is the "Evil Dead" of action movies - a 16mm low-budget action movie that is hugely entertaining with a lot of inventive camera angles and huge amounts of blood. The film feels realistic and has a nice bunch of faces and (to me) unknown Mexican faces. The only scene that rings untrue is when our hero runs up a car hood and the villains stupidly shoot themselves.

  4. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film El Mariachi

    Rodriguez got famous off of this 7k budget film. Motherf**

  5. Levi Miah's rating of the film El Mariachi

    Super stylish debut with some really kinetic camera work and action sequences along with a great soundtrack - a real marvel of low-budget cinema.

  6. Eric Ortiz García's rating of the film El Mariachi

  7. Ethan's rating of the film El Mariachi

    This was a stellar debut from Robert Rodriguez who made this movie for only seven thousand dollars and made it more exciting than most action films that came out around that time. Proving that you can do more with less.

  8. Corrado Agnello's rating of the film El Mariachi

  9. Michael H. CLAES's rating of the film El Mariachi

    Budget 7000 $ World Box Office 2 041 928 $ Return on Investment 29 100 %

  10. Ursula Bree's rating of the film El Mariachi

    Sometimes the Evil wears white and the Good is in black

  11. Enrico Cioni's rating of the film El Mariachi

    Like a Shakespearean comedy of errors but with more people blowing huge bloody holes into one another with big-ass guns. Some pacing issues. Wasn't convinced by Peter Marquardt's villain to begin with--those line readings!--but he redeems himself in the last 6 minutes or so with a fantastic series of "angry gringo" faces.

  12. Magic Lantern Alison's rating of the film El Mariachi

  13. raggiodisole's rating of the film El Mariachi

    A signpost to a talented director, and a great story, but lacked bite

  14. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film El Mariachi

    A lack of budget can sometimes be a huge plus. It forces the film maker to use their imagination. This is cheap B movie schlock of the highest order.

  15. The Heff's rating of the film El Mariachi

    Brilliant piece of cinema showing that a big budget isn't always needed to make a great film.

  16. Stefan Drees's rating of the film El Mariachi

    Hard, fast and dirty trash with good timing.

  17. Paul Relf's rating of the film El Mariachi

    This film makes up for everything it lacks with charm by the bucket load. I grinned happily all the way through this. Honestly for a bad film it's actually perfectly good.

  18. Richard Capener's rating of the film El Mariachi

    I think Desperado is a film that's so bad it's good. This film, though, is what genre movies should be: engaging and stylised without taking itself too seriously or too blithely. The opening ten minutes are particularly great.

  19. Filipe Marques's rating of the film El Mariachi

    this movie is so bad it's perfect

  20. AdrianM.'s rating of the film El Mariachi

    A very mexican film. sure,it was a bit clicheic and had some annoying plot twists, but quite decent for a debute with amateur actors and a really small budget. the semi-surreal dreams and the ending were the highlights

  21. Swag Yolo's rating of the film El Mariachi

    A great debut for ROBERT RODRIGUEZ.
