January 16, 2011
Still loaded with action and wonderful characters, but this is the least of the three pictures.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
December 26, 2010
Like an R-rated, violent Roadrunner cartoon.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 13, 2009
...a cartoonish action movie that entertains without garnering empathy for any of its characters, with the exception of Ruben Blades' Jorge.

Would be such a good movie, were it not so utterly ridiculous and laden with sheer stupidity and nonsense...
January 21, 2005
Occasionally hits heights worthy of its Sergio Leone-inspired title ... but its manic invention exhausts more than enthralls.
October 14, 2004
To be fair, Rodriguez's wicked dialogue does elicit some laughs amongst the on-screen carnage.

A splendid cast and spectacular orgies of carnage combine to produce a surprisingly creaky, labored, and boring movie.
February 24, 2004
Over the top and all over the place, Once Upon A Time In Mexico is as unruly as it characters: joyously style-driven as a Bond movie but with its own set of style guidelines.

Once Upon a Time in Mexico is the film I've wanted to see from Robert Rodriguez since he made Desperado in 1995.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
January 1, 2004
Once Upon a Time in America is an action packed western fairy tale. It may not make much sense... but then, it doesn't have to.

An enjoyable cap to the El Mariachi trilogy that occasionally disappoints, but never mars the good name of its predecessors
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 14, 2003
This is a film with too many dum dums and not enough drama.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 7, 2003
Assumindo as funções principais da produção, Rodriguez apresenta-se como verdadeiro autor de seus filmes. Pena que um não muito bom.

'One area Rodriguez has not managed to nail down is telling a compelling narrative.'

God bless Johnny Depp. For the second time this year, the man has almost single-handedly redeemed an action movie that would otherwise be indistinguishable from the pack.
October 7, 2003
Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek co-star in this continuation of the El Mariachi story... but it's Johnny Depp who steals the show.

October 6, 2003
Rodriguez puts a lot of mindless violence on the screen. Moment to moment the films is unpredictable, but on the large scale the plot is old, predictable, and familiar.
Full Review| Original Score: 5/10
October 1, 2003
Rodriguez inserts loud, frenetic and oddly bloodless gun battles wherever possible and to constantly diminishing effect.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 28, 2003
A sprawling, chaotic mess of a movie that is still incredibly enjoyable.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

'Once Upon A Time in Mexico plays like a delirious combination of A Fistful of Dollars, The Revenger's Tragedy and Airplane.'
