The no-named Mariachi (Antonio Banderas) tracks down the last Mexican drug-lord "Bucho" with the help of his best friend and a beautiful book store owner (Salma Hayek). In a poetically violent style reminiscent of John Woo and Sam Peckinpah, the Mariachi takes on his entire army of henchmen in a dusty border town as an act of revenge for the murder of his love and his injured musician's hand. Robert Rodriguez's big budget sequel to "El Mariachi." Also starring Cheech Marin (of Cheech and Chong) and Steve Buscemi (RESERVOIR DOGS).;

"...Antonio Banderas is the ultimate in sexy action cool....The stunts dazzle..."
"....Breathtaking....[Rodriguez] makes adventurous use of the camera..."
"...[A] propulsive rock & roll spaghetti Western....Wittily hyperbolic..." -- Rating: B
"...[The film] could scarcely be more dazzling on a purely visual level....There is no question of imagination working overtime..."
"...On a visual level, DESPERADO is a dazzlingly indulgent exercise..."
