Young Man's Mexican Adventure
7 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's much potential in this out-of-the-ordinary tale about a young Kansan seeking adventure in Mexico. There's a worthy cast, colorful settings, sharp photography, and a fetching soundtrack.

What's missing is a smooth, coherent narrative that deeply involves the viewer in this lad's south-of-the-border quest. Unfortunately, the narrative is rather disjointed and uneven, preventing the viewer an opportunity to fully understand character motivation.

Our hero isn't the most charismatic character, and the script doesn't help clarify matters. The mariachi music is fine per se, though it's not very smoothly integrated into the narrative. It's a pity, for there are fine basic ingredients that could have been better blended into the whole.

While "Mariachi Gringo" was for me an adequate watch, it's unlikely to prompt a Mexican trip.
