Made at a time when Johnny Depp craze was the biggest, the supporting actor tries to steal the movie away from the Mariachi and has too many scenes that drags on or are over-the-top in this third movie The film's ambitious story also loses focus and seem to jump from character to character without any real passion. A huge disappointing third film.
I'm not usually big on movies that are essentially remakes unless they somehow manage to bring much more to the subsequent film. Enough that the filmmaker had a good reason for doing it. Although this is somewhat similar to Desperado in a basic sense I can honestly say I think Rodriguez managed to do just that with a better cast, better effects and a more emotionally engaging story.
I LOVE this movie. This probably ties (or is just a smidge below) Sin City as my favorite Robert Rodriguez movie. Yeah, it gets a lot of hate, but man, I watched it probably somewhere between twenty to thirty times in 2005. Just freaking fun. Savvy
