A lovely romp....
26 July 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember the television series when I was a kid, it wasn't shown on television very often, as it was a bit controversial even back in the 70's, but even then, I remember it was a bit more comical than any of the other westerns. And when a 12 year old can tell the difference...that's not good.

This new version is fun. Cheech Marin as Poncho is simply brilliant casting. Jimmy Smits might not be the best choice as the Cisco Kid (Johnny Depp would have been a much better choice, and probably a bit more believable.) Less believable were the women's costumes and some of the uniforms (I crave your pardon, I study historical costuming...and believe me, it's not difficult to find references or even patterns with very little effort, on the other hand it likely took a LOT of effort to get it wrong.) But I ENJOYED the film. It was as much fun (or more) than the old black and white episodes I used to watch on TV on a Saturday afternoon. The first thing I did when I finished watching "The Cisco Kid" on video was re-wind it and watch it all over again. There are some movies that are just fun, and this is one of them.
