Hey, Cisco!...Hey, Pancho!... Oh forget it!
31 October 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Jimmy Smits is an actor that never seems to grab hold of a role and tear it apart. As the Cisco Kid, he grins and struts his way through a part which, to be fair to Smits, is given the comic book treatment by the producers. The script is weak and the action laborious and uninspired, and in many ways the narrative parallels the Zorro escapades where a fictitious character is loosely connected to an important historical period in North American history. However, it is unlikely that an egotistical opportunist like Cisco would be associated with Juarez's revolutionary ousting of the French from Mexico or that the peasants would look up to the type of man that Cisco represents, especially as his heroics are predicated on his desire to bed the lovely Dominique- a French woman and one of the colonial invaders who just can't believe how badly the locals have been treated by all her relatives. Cheech Marin as Pancho is good and the talented Sadie Frost is much wasted in this slight production. The television series of the Fifties did it much better - 4/10.
