Goofs

When the young ladies are stopped by the officer on the highway, his uniform has "Sheriff's Department" patches, yet his collar brass is "PD". These would be two separate, distinct agencies and wouldn't, at least in Arizona and Texas, be worn by the same officer. His vehicle is also marked "Police", and again assuming this takes place in Arizona, would normally be a city law enforcement vehicle,while someone from a Sheriff's Office would be a county officer. They would be using vehicles marked "Sheriff" or "Such and such County". There's actually a big difference in the functions of the two agencies. See more »

Grindhouse movies: alive and well. Sort of.
14 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Quentin Tarentino and Robert Rodriguez tried (I'd say, with mixed success) to honor the history of grindhouse movies -- low budget movies shot with gonzo velocities and lots of cleavers & cleavage.

What Tarentino and Rodriguez tried to celebrate from their mink-lined, gold-plated director chairs, these guys did all by their loathsome lonesome, and cranked out El Charro. A masterpiece? No - not by a long shot. But, you know, it does have all the hallmarks of grindhouse: barely comprehensible plotting, bizarre riffs from the periphery, cars on desert highways, bad dialog, bad cops, bad bars, some nonsense about curses, babbling priests, buckets of blood, a couple hundred f-bombs, and (duh) topless women.

If you're looking for El Charro to introduce you to next round of cinematic genius, you'll be sorely disappointed. But, if you've been hankering for some drive-in quality, B-movie slasher junk -- then why the hell not?

(The soundtrack kind of kicks a--, by the way).
