Audience Reviews for Bandidas

  • Apr 06, 2011
    Bandidas is unrepentant fun. Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz begin as opposites in a familiar western theme of revenge against the greedy out to murder, steal, and swindle their land. Initially distrustful of each other, fate soon unites the two feminine heroines against the unscrupulous Tyler Jackson (Dwight Yoakam), ultimately prevailing in this swashbuckling action comedy. This film is multiculturalism at its funniest; it's a joint French/Mexican/American production starring the Spanish Cruz, the Mexican Hayek, filmed by two Norwegian directors, shot in Mexico. The movie is over the top all the way. It features bank robbery basic training, pratfalls galore, banjos, ice skates, and even "Matrix-y" type slow-mo action. This is the funniest western since Shanghai Noon, but it didn't have catfights. Veteran comedic comrade Steve Zahn is hilarious as the crime scene expert who joins forces with the bad girl robin hoods. Watching his "seduction "scene with Cruz and Hayek, I concluded that he must be the luckiest man in the history of motion pictures! These leading ladies complement each other like more traditional action duos. You root for them, knowing they'll triumph in the end. They're a dynamic pair alright, and I'm not just talking about their epic chests! In the end, they ride off into the sunset, their legend only to increase.

    What a piece of good talents wasted, and the opportunity of a well-made western.Forget it.

    heard bad things about this but it was better than i expected it to be, cruz and hayek work well together, along with steve zahn along for the ride fun also, some humour from the girls work well, and action scattered throughout done nicely, and dwyght yokem playing bad also a good watch, the ending was kind of setting up for further adventures with hayek saying banks are bigger in europe, lets go rob them, i guess that wont be happening, so for what it is a entertaining film

    Light comic fun as two women from different sides of the track team up in Old Mexico to rob banks. Dwight Yoakum is fun as the moustache twirling bad guy, Steve Zahn the ever underappreciated good guy, but the highly watchable leads, Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek are the buddy team and heart of this Besson produced light entertainment buggy ride.
