Synopsis


Once Upon a Time in Mexico
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 Armendáriz 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

    Not only does this CD effectively capture the flavor of the movie, it also stands on it's own as a wonderful listening experience. Each track has something to recommend it, and the pacing is good ... and the Salma Hayek piece near the end simply warms my soul. The snippets of dialogue here and there are brief, well-chosen, and add rather than detract. Overall, a great CD and a great listen.

    Robert Rodriguez capped off his El Mariachi trilogy with Once Upon a Time in Mexico. It features a large ensemble cast including Antonio Banderas, Johnny Depp, and even singer Enrique Iglesias. What we are left with is a funny action packed film that will always be entertaining.

    The final film in Robert Rodriguez's Mariachi trilogy, the mariachi is now dragged out of a life of peace to prevent a coup and get a chance at revenge. Another fun popcorn action/comedy, the star-studded cast delivers from beginning to end.

    This is a film that is balls to the wall fun from start to finish. Depp steals every scene that he is in, Hayek smolders on the screen, and Banderas is the most badass mariachi in the history of cinema.

    I love these movies. The character Antonio plays is so awesome. This third installment also includes the addition of Johnny Depp which is so cool. Great story and great bluray.

    Robert Rodriguez again delivers an action film worth owning. It's the weakest of his Mexico trilogy, but still a great film. Recommended.
