Leaping back into action, gun-slinging, guitar-toting hero "El Mariachi" is back in town in ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO, as writer/director Robert Rodriguez delivers the epic final chapter of his pulp Western trilogy. Now remastered in high definition for Blu-ray™ starring Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Johnny Depp, Mickey Rourke, Eva Mendes, Danny Trejo, Enrique Iglesias, Rubén Blades and Willem Dafoe, ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO is a full-frontal assault.
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

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.
