Still loaded with action and wonderful characters, but this is the least of the three pictures.

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.

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

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.

Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek co-star in this continuation of the El Mariachi story... but it's Johnny Depp who steals the show.

A sprawling, chaotic mess of a movie that is still incredibly enjoyable.

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

Rodriguez is a artist of limited gifts, certainly, but those gifts are exquisite -- and he uses them to great effect.

Though it has plenty of humour and gunfire, the final installment of this series is unexpectedly serious in its contemplation of a world sunken by moral erosion.
