There's plenty of guns and a few explosions as bodies fly through the air and crash into tables and fruit stands. Once Upon a Time in Mexico, like all Robert Rodriguez movies, is all about the kinetic kick of high-velocity action. Johnny Depp, blasé and whimsical, plays a CIA agent who's drawn guitar-playing gun-slinger Antonio Banderas (long black hair flopping over his face like the ears of a Labrador puppy) into a ridiculously convoluted plot to overthrow the Mexican government. Along for the ride are a craggy-faced rogue's gallery including Willem Dafoe, Mickey Rourke, Danny Trejo, Ruben Blades, and (to balance things out) the smooth, tantalising complexions of Eva Mendes and Salma Hayek. For sheer trashy fun, Once Upon a Time in Mexico is a step down from its predecessor, but Desperado set the bar pretty high. For coherent storytelling, look elsewhere, but for action razzle-dazzle, this is your movie. Rodriguez's complete trilogy--El Mariachi, Desperado and Once Upon a Time in Mexico--can also be found in one DVD box set--Bret Fetzer

4.0 out of 5 stars Me Gusta La Guitarra 15 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
Once Upon A Time in Mexico is the third film in Robert Rodriguez's 'El Mariachi' Trilogy. Throughout all three films, the music has played a large part to the atmosphere of the film (although more so in the latter two films). With many of the cast of Once Upon A Time In Mexico being musicians in their own rights, many of the cast have opted to contribute to the soundtrack. Salma Hayek wrote and sang the vocals on 'Siente Mi Amor' and Johnny Depp actually composed a whole piece for his character entitles 'Sands Theme'
The highlights of this CD are 'Malaguena', 'Yo Te Quiero' (used in a famous advert if i'm not mistaken), the excellent 'Traeme Paz' 'El Mariachi' and 'Siente Mi Amor'.
The more obscure of music coming in this album in the form of the excellent 'Pistolero' and the track 'Me Gustas Tu', which unfortunately for any spanish speakers out there does contain some of the worst lyrics ever written.
Another unfortunate point is that it doesn't contain the majority of the excellent guitar parts played by Antonio Banderas. However, don't let that put you off, it really is an excellent CD.
Overall, this CD is an essential purchase if you are a fan of Spanish/Latin style music and appreciate the style of spanish guitar music. Also, it is worth buying if you have watched the films and enjoyed the music contained within them. 4/5 Stars.

By ghandibob VINE VOICE
There are some great extras on the DVD. Perhaps most interesting of all is the one where director Robert Rodriguez gives a 10-minute masterclass on how to achieve convincing special effects, on a budget, and on time. But the skilful use of camera angles, sewn together with the computer rendering Rodriguez trades so well in, says a lot about the style of the film.
Once Upon a Time in Mexico is judderingly fast paced. It's like a small car, hurtling round a long bend, the dashboard shaking, only just managing to hold the road. The style is so quick that it threatens to leave you behind, not caring, not getting involved. It's a technical masterpiece of sorts, but that won't get the juices flowing. But then, it's a very, very cool film, which can go a long way when it's done with such energy. Just look at Kill Bill Vol. 1.
The main reason to watch is Jonny Depp, who yet again turns in a twitchy, off-centre performance that you can't help but love. He's a CIA agent in Mexico, fomenting political intrigue one minute, killing innocent bystanders the next. Antonio Banderas is El Mariachi, the guitar-toting assassin with an impressive line in brooding regret. Quite what they are both up to is a bit of a mystery, but it involves the new President of Mexico, a planned military coup and some plastic surgery. Also, everyone wants to kill everyone else.
If the plot doesn't hang together - and it doesn't - the performance of Depp and the action set pieces more than make up for it. It is filmmaking with a sense of fun and enjoyment. This is most certainly not a Mexican standoff. More a Mexican pile-on, and it's none the worse for that.

If you're looking for an action extravaganza with an incredible punch to it, "Once Upon a Time in Mexico" is the trip for you. Is it a Shakespearian masterpiece? Of course not. Is it a shoot-'em-up and go-for-broke adventure filled with power and entertainment? Heck, yeah! This is a film that proves to be a good time--especially for those who want a real action movie that has a unique touch to it. While it may be over-the-top at times, it's a breath of fresh air for those who have been disappointed with some of the latest action blunders.
The film is Robert Rodriguez's final chapter in the "El Mariachi" saga, completing the trilogy. Antonio Banderas returns as the lone gunman who has a passion for guitars. Unable to escape his horrific past, he gets an opportunity to get revenge against the person who has caused him so much dread. The person who offers him the job is a crooked CIA agent--a man who does not hesitate to get his hands bloody in order to get what he wants. A simple meeting between the two unleashes a complex and even sometimes downright confusing story with twists and turns around every corner. You don't know who is playing who until the very end in this exciting thrill-ride that is both exhilarating and humorous.
I really enjoyed watching "Once Upon a Time in Mexico." I've been so disappointed with some of the most recent action flunkies that have been released in the past few months. It's a highly entertaining movie that resembles a hi-tech western filled with top-notch action sequences that are absolutely exhilarating. The movie is most certainly violent and gory, so it is not recommended for the squeamish. However, I must point out that a good majority of the violent sequences are cartoonish and purposely over-the-top.

5.0 out of 5 stars Are you a Mexi-can or a Mexi-can't? 15 Mar 2004
Everyone talked about the complicated plot of this film but I just assumed they were exaggerating for effect. I started to watch and could see that there was a bit of double-crossing going on, but nothing anyone with a bit of intelligence couldn’t follow. And then, right when I was at my smuggest, the plot took a 90-degree left-turn, disappeared into a tunnel and left me trying to catch up. So, yes, the film is nonsense, but it really doesn’t matter because its fantastic nonsense: great to look at, exciting, another top-notch soundtrack, and it doesn’t take itself too seriously at all.
Rodriguez is up to his old tricks of doing a dozen different jobs (cameraman, director, editor, composer, etc.) while half the people in front of the cameraman are old favourites from his other films (Danny Trejo, Cheech Marin, Banderas, Salma Hayek – only briefly in flashback). A couple of the extras on the disc show you how this means he can be more in control of the whole film as he can frame shots with the post-production effects in mind. Just like on the earlier Mariachi and Spy Kids films, the ‘Ten Minute Flick School’ gives you more hard information on film making than other 45-minute documentaries. The tour of Troublemaker Studios is really a tour of Roberto’s garage, because he has had it converted to a state-of-the-art digital editing studio. Another short film has Rodriguez showing how to cook the pork dish, which features heavily in the film – maybe he is trying to make it into a cult thing or something? Anyway, the extras are all watchable, perhaps even more than once, and the examples of how shooting with digital cameras makes it easier to factor in possible CGI effects is, perhaps, the most significant observation.

A middle of the road Johnny Depp movie.
No shortage of action, with Depp being his usual entertaining self.
Certainly a film for Johnny Depp fans...

5.0 out of 5 stars Film or soundtrack ?
The music on this soundtrack is excellent. Being a big fan of Flamenco and Fado music, It seemed to nestle nicely between the two. Shame about the film.
