Reviews

Action thriller starring Salma Hayek and Penélope Cruz as a pair of outlaws seeking revenge against a ruthless local enforcer. It is 1848 and a New York bank seeks to make a huge profit by building a railway across Mexico. The bank's enforcer, Tyler Jackson (Dwight Yoakam), aims to quell the resistance of locals who may not enjoy having their land stolen to make way for the railroad. When Tyler is implicated in the murder of local men, including the fathers of close friends Sara (Hayek) and Maria (Cruz), the two women become bandits. With the aid of a former bank robber, Bill Buck (Sam Shepard), and a criminologist, Quentin Cooke (Steve Zahn), they attempt to strike back at Jackson and drive him and his murderous henchmen away.

Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz are both fantastically sexy in this movie which is half the reason to want it!! The story is good fun and keeps you thrilled throughout, this is rather an underrated film I feel and deserves to be seen! Certainly one of the best westerns made over the years,

The import Blu-ray version has a great picture and is region B and in full English, extras too, includes making of.

Two insanely beautiful Mexican women decide to exact revenge on some pistoleros, hired guns for a U.S. banking concern, who shot each of their respective dads. One is a spoiled rich girl, the other a poor girl, and these two unlikely allies unite forces. They meet some guy who trains them how to shoot, and the fearsome Bandidas are born, free to plunder the Mexican desert in sexy outfits and chase the bad guys. They set out to even the score by robbing banks.

Does the premise make sense? Of course not. It's just a convenient set up of odd circumstances so Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz can do a Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid send up, except with high heels and thick Spanish accents. They trade barbs pretty humorously, and make a good screen comedy team. The action is fun, and of course, way over the top. The expert of the new science of forensics (this is set about a century ago) is the luckiest guy in the old west; he gets to kiss both of them.

Campy slapstick fun. The whole cast has a good time, and makes the satirical and playful mood amusing. Good brainless popcorn entertainment.

I only came across this film as I was looking through western dvds on Amazon, I'd never heard of the fil before and didnt even know Hayek & Cruz had made a western together. And its a really good one as well, funny, action packed, well written and acted great. Can't understand why the film was'nt given a cinema release in the UK. Hayek & Cruz work well together, and play off each other well. A film for all the family, Im 37, my mums 75 and my nephew 13 and we all really enjoyed it.

Rarely seen on T. V. entertaining film. What's to dislike with those two lovely Latin-American leading ladies in a action packed but also mingled with humour movie.

Quite enjoyed the film - not the greatest western ever but then I did not expect it to be. I was disappointed with the commentary from the two gals but then commentaries tend to be either very informative/humerous or a waste of time. Sorry but this was more of the latter!. Back to the film though, the two stars were worth watching - always are which is why I bought the dvd in the first place - but it is a pity the film was not as funny or action-packed as I had hoped.

Format: DVD
Let's say straight away that this is not a great film, but then if you look at the DVD cover and the casting of Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek together, this should come as no great surprise. If you accept this from the off then the movie does offer some decent popcorn munching entertainmet. Set in the 1850s the two girls play Mexican companeros who join forces to redress the murderous activities of a ruthless American land baron. These latter day Robin Hood's steal from the banks in order to help the poor. Throw in a bit of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid", and much film of the leading ladies decolletage and you have yourself a film. Miss Cruz wins the battle of the cleavage by a whisker! Given these facts it is no surprise the film has gained a cult following.

The screenplay is written by that talented devourer of comic books Luc Besson, who gives the film a distinct comic book flavour. It is a French, Mexican, American co-production filmed in that haven for westerns Durango, Mexico and in Mexico city itself. Salma Hayek is Mexican by birth so plays her role with ease. Penelope Cruz, who is a fine actress, just has some fun in a role that requires little effort on her part. The appearance of two of modern cinemas most beautiful women together is certainly a casting coup by any stretch of the imagination. Akin to getting Raquel Welch and Sophia Loren together a few years back. Dwight Yoakam is a memorable baddie, and Sam Shephard who's made a few westerns has a cameo appearance to try and give the film some street cred. Forget the plot, and just enjoy the action infused with some hit and miss humour. The girls have a memorable cat fight and there is plenty of gun blazing action. Like a home made chocolate brownie it is a guilty pleasure that I enjoyed more than I should have.
