It just sits there, doing nothing that a competent made-for-cable movie with C-list stars couldn't do.

First pairing of Hollywood's beloved stars Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts is a mixed blessing in this mishmash of a movie, in which different genres and styles strenuously compete for our attention.

The Mexican coasts along throwing at us double-agent/double-crossings intrigue, witty one-liners, and some evocative scenery.

The final concern for the audience is not how the film will end (you won't care), but when?

...all very breezy and bright, and perhaps just a little too facile.

The main problem with the movie has to do with several jolting moments of violence.

The Mexican" turns violent in the last half hour, betraying the sense of fun.

directed by Gore Verbinski, whose previous movie "Mousehunt" was a very strange piece of family entertainment. "The Mexican" is a very strange piece of adult entertainment ... sure to confound anyone looking for "Runaway Bride, Part II."

Julia Roberts, una vez más demuestra que tiene mucha madera para la comedia.
| Original Score: 7/10

Even the film’s fatuous advertising blurb (“Love with the safety off”) combines romance and firearms, gunplay and foreplay.

An example of how trying to accommodate the best of both worlds results in the most confused mess.
