Is this sequel better than the original?After the events of "El Mariachi", our protagonist continues to travel looking for vengeance and now his target is a drug lord known as "Bucho"."El Mariachi" was a solid, entertaining and promising directorial debut that followed the typical western formula so it had potential for improvement but unfortunately "Desperado" couldn't fulfill this task. "Desperado" counts with Rodriguezs over the top but inventive directing, Banderas works as clich protagonist, the cinematography is better, the location is beautiful, a campy vibe that manages to be amusing throughout the films running time, and over the top violence that gives this film some style. The big issue I have with "Desperado" is that it mostly follows the story and formula of its predecessor: The same plot points, replicates several sequences, the action is shot exactly the same, a score that feels improvised, stereotypical characters, the fast pacing, acting that is nothing great but is incredibly fun to watch, creative and over the top action scenes and the same humor. And while the majority of all those elements are improved due to the bigger budget, it lacks the indie charm that made "El Mariachi" so memorable and it is instead replaced with a over the top action vibe that is so laughable and ridiculous. Another problem this sequel suffers is the fact that the plot is irrelevant as the film is more focused on the action sequences rather than telling a logical, cohesive and well written story. "Desperado" is a ridiculous film that feels like a remake of "El Mariachi" but it still manages to be incredibly fun, even though it is an inferior film. If you like action films/westerns you will like this film more than I do. A fun and entertaining but mindless film.

David G (ca) wrote: Anti-war drama from Joel Schumacher that follows a platoon of recuits through infantry training in 1971, a final eight weeks of preparation before being shipped out to Vietnam. As you'd expect there are many varied personalities amongst the men - aspiring writer Paxton (Matthew Davis), borderline psychopath Wilson (Shea Whigham) and emotional wreck Miter (Clifton Collins Jr.), however, the focus is firmly on Bozz (Colin Farrell in his first major film role), a rebellious draftee whose anti-establishment nature causes havoc (for better and for worse) amongst the men. Bozz is a fascinating character - a born leader, perhaps even a born soldier, who simply refuses to conform - and Farrell plays him with gusto. The rest of the cast are equally good, especially Shea Whigham as the sinister Wilson, Clifton Collins Jr. as Miter and Cole Hauser in a small role as a no-bullshit combat veteran ("In Vietnam there are no happy fucking stories"). Seeing Bozz's impact on those around him, watching their relationships develop and listening to their interactions leaves a lasting impression and the gritty handheld visuals provide a very real and down to earth feel. It's hard to believe this was made by the same man who made Batman & Robin!
