He is forced out of hiding when Sands, a corrupt CIA agent, recruits the reclusive hero to sabotage an assassination plot against the president of Mexico, which has been conceived by the evil cartel kingpin, Barillo. But El Mariachi also has his own reasons for returning--blood revenge. This movie is so out of control and so silly but that is what Robert Rodriguez does. The characters are okay for the most part but Johnny Depp's (Agent Sands) is by the best character in this whole film. The stunts are good but I think the villains could have been done better because there are pretty forgettable.

Edith N (kr) wrote: Not Always Easy to Follow, Like the Man Himself I fear that, because I am not particularly familiar with the work of Yukio Mishima--which means I've never read any of it--I am probably not going to do this film justice. It's hard to decipher what is reality, what is imagination, what is excerpts from the man's work. And probably a lot of his work, if not truly autobiographical, hints at an autobiographical nature. And since all I know of the man himself is limited to conversations about this film, I can't even say, "Well, this is clearly an examination of his experiences as a child." Because what do I know? I doubt even reading the entire Wikipedia article about him wouldn't give me the insight to dissect man versus myth. Especially since my understanding is that a lot of his life is to this day not entirely understood. There is, famously, a scene in this movie set in a gay bar--but good luck getting a sense of what the man's actual sexuality really was. The movie is divided into four chapters, as the title says. The first three, "Beauty," "Art," and "Action," are apparently tellings of three of the novels of Mishima (as an adult, Ken Ogata). Because other actors (G Rij, Masato Aizawa, and Yuki Nagahara) are credited as Mishima, I assume that the flashbacks may be assumed to be reasonably biographical. However, "Beauty" is also Mishima's novel [i]The Temple of the Golden Pavilion[/i]. "Art" is also [i]Kyoko's House[/i]. "Action" is also [i]Runaway Horses[/i]. The fourth chapter, "Harmony of Pen and Sword," concerns the events of 25 November, 1970. This was the last day in the life of Yukio Mishima. The day on which he was supposed to lead a coup to restore true imperial power to Japan. This, you may note, did not work according to plan. At any rate, due to the structure of the film, trying to break down story any more than that doesn't help all that much. From what little I did read of the Wikipedia page--mostly the stuff about his death--I am given to understand that the Emperor to whom Mishima was devoted was not necessarily the man. It was the spirit of Japan itself. Actual Hirohito, Mishima did not necessarily care for, especially after he denied his own divinity. (Which makes it all the more interesting that a woman Mishima once considered marrying is now Empress Michiko.) I actually have a certain amount of sympathy for the feeling; I've often felt a lot of the latter half of the twentieth century as it relates to Japan could be traced to the shock of that voice on the radio one day in 1945. Adding the rumoured latent homosexuality (or not so latent), or even bisexuality, onto that wouldn't help, given cultural attitudes. And frankly, I figure there was probably something wrong with the guy on top of all that. This is, to me, the most interesting aspect of Mishima's life, and it's the one filmmaker Paul Schrader had to dance around. At that, the family withdrew all assistance when they found out about the gay bar scene. Really, though, the reason to watch this movie is for the visuals. Unless you are yourself some Mishima devotee, in which case you've probably stopped reading this review in disgust by now. It is a visually striking movie. I was particularly intrigued by the scenes of the Golden Pavilion. It looked like a stage play for most of its length; indeed, before I read the details, I assumed that it was based on one of Mishima's plays. The detail on the Golden Pavilion model itself was stunning. Even in the more prosaic scenes, such as the ending, there was obvious attention to detail. A globe is knocked off its stand; this is reported as a goof on IMDB, but it was obviously an aesthetic choice. Probably so was the fact that it lands showing the United States. Obviously, Mishima's own art was in words, but the movie is really more about how things appear than what is actually said. Though this is arguably true of Mishima's life in general, given what we know and don't know. The history of the biopic is a checkered one. I think the problem is that not every life lends itself to the same style of telling, and too many films try to tell varied lives in identical fashion. Imagine this and [i]Million Dollar Mermaid[/i] trading styles, and I don't just mean to imagine swimming Japanese nationalists. Or Victor Mature committing seppuku. (Though you can, if you like; isn't it fun?) Or even the linear [i]Walk the Line[/i]. The reason to do this film in this style is that Mishima's life was itself almost a work of fiction. He created an image of himself quite deliberately--he even required any woman he married to be shorter than himself, presumably because it looked right that way. (He was, even by Japanese standards of his day, awfully short.) A regular telling of his life, following all the high points until that fateful day in Ichigaya, would be all wrong for this man. Even if it were the more modern, warts-and-all kind, not the edges polished kind.
