El Mariachi / Desperado / Once Upon a Time in Mexico
ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO (18)
This sequel to El Mariachi/Desperado reunites director Robert Rodriguez with Antonio Banderas as the gunslinging outlaw, coming out of retirement to save the president of Mexico from assassination.
There's some style in fits and starts, but overall this has about as much entertainment value as a cartoon. Johnny Depp steals the film as an eccentric assassin, but it's just all too silly to warrant any repeat viewings.
