Critics reviews

Like most offbeat comedies, The Mexican has a sensibility you’re either in sync with or really, really aren’t. (Director Gore Verbinski gives it much the same sprightly rhythm as the first Pirates Of The Caribbean, before that franchise got bloated.) Even those who don’t find the film funny, however, can’t deny the power of Gandolfini’s self-loathing, tough-but-tender fool for love, who arguably provides more soul than such a goofy trifle can handle.
