September 11, 2003
Those enamored of the stylish wall-to-wall gunfights and explosions from Rodriguez's previous films will leave the theater shaking their heads.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 11, 2003
Its action often feels chaotic, simultaneously lazy and agitated, rather than choreographed.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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
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...

September 23, 2004
A splendid cast and spectacular orgies of carnage combine to produce a surprisingly creaky, labored, and boring movie.
September 14, 2003
Any semblance of a main plot vanishes. The story is just a bunch of meanwhiles.

Audiences, I believe, are going to want to see another dose of the first two films; they don't want the headache of trying to figure out what the heck is going on for two hours.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
September 10, 2003
...when gunplay takes a back seat to manifold political intrigue that would give Tom Clancy a headache, you've done your tongue-in-cheek, check-your-brain action movie a disservice.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 14, 2003
A mindless and tedious orgy of violence.
Full Review | Original Score: D
September 16, 2003
Once Upon a Time In Mexico tries to be a big budget action event and just delivers a lot of explosions and gunplay with very little substance.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
September 22, 2003
As an iconic image, [Depp] captures the feeling of Rodriguez's movie: blinded and shooting randomly in all directions.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
November 7, 2003
Assumindo as funções principais da produção, Rodriguez apresenta-se como verdadeiro autor de seus filmes. Pena que um não muito bom.

September 11, 2003
A movie that goes so wrong so abruptly it's as if a meteor were heading for the set and everyone had to evacuate.

After a while, Once Upon a Time in Mexico starts having the same effect as one too many tequilas: the Hong Kong-style stunts, the goofy wisecracks, the foxy presence of Eva Mendes -- all of it becomes blurry and numbing.

A noisy, unholy mess, with moments of wit and surprise that ultimately make its brutal tedium all the more disappointing.

Just another stunted-up silly blood bath with no real passion, intelligence or wit.

September 12, 2003
It's at once busy and lacklustre, intricately plotted yet indifferently paced, handsomely mounted but made from plastic.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 18, 2003
A movie with that many freaks and creeps should be a lot more exciting than this one actually is.
