1. El Mariachi (1992)

R | 81 min | Action, Crime, Thriller

73 Metascore

A traveling mariachi is mistaken for a murderous criminal and must hide from a gang bent on killing him.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Carlos Gallardo, Consuelo Gómez, Jaime de Hoyos, Peter Marquardt

Votes: 58,455 | Gross: $2.04M

Made on a shoestring budget, El Mariachi's story is not new. However, the movie has so much energy that it's thoroughly enjoyable.

2. Desperado (1995)

R | 104 min | Action, Thriller

55 Metascore

A gunslinger is embroiled in a war with a local drug runner.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Joaquim de Almeida, Cheech Marin

Votes: 157,753 | Gross: $25.63M

Rodriguez's second feature may be a rambling, derivative exercise in gratuitous violence, but its determination to proceed as if the word 'restraint' never existed makes for gleeful entertainment.

3. Four Rooms (1995)

R | 98 min | Comedy

Four interlocking tales that take place in a fading hotel on New Year's Eve.

Directors: Allison Anders, Alexandre Rockwell, Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino | Stars: Tim Roth, Antonio Banderas, Sammi Davis, Amanda De Cadenet

Votes: 89,350 | Gross: $4.30M

Four Rooms comes stocked with a ton of talent on both sides of the camera, yet only manages to add up to a particularly uneven -- and dismayingly uninspired -- anthology effort.

4. From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)

R | 108 min | Action, Crime, Horror

48 Metascore

Two criminals and their hostages unknowingly seek temporary refuge in a truck stop populated by vampires, with chaotic results.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Harvey Keitel, George Clooney, Juliette Lewis, Quentin Tarantino

Votes: 256,375 | Gross: $25.75M

A pulpy crime drama/vampire film hybrid, From Dusk Till Dawn is an uneven but often deliriously enjoyable B-movie.

5. The Faculty (1998)

R | 104 min | Horror, Sci-Fi

61 Metascore

Students suspect that their teachers are aliens after bizarre occurrences.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Jordana Brewster, Clea DuVall, Laura Harris, Josh Hartnett

Votes: 102,333 | Gross: $40.06M

Rip-off of other sci-fi thrillers.

6. Spy Kids (2001)

PG | 88 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

71 Metascore

The children of secret-agent parents must save them from danger.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Alexa PenaVega, Daryl Sabara, Antonio Banderas, Carla Gugino

Votes: 97,857 | Gross: $112.72M

A kinetic and fun movie that's sure to thrill children of all ages.

7. Spy Kids 2: Island of Lost Dreams (2002)

PG | 100 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

66 Metascore

The Cortez siblings set out for a mysterious island, where they encounter a genetic scientist and a set of rival spy kids.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Alexa PenaVega, Daryl Sabara, Antonio Banderas, Carla Gugino

Votes: 53,725 | Gross: $85.85M

Though the concept is no longer fresh, Spy Kids 2 is still an agreeable and energetic romp.

8. Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over (2003)

PG | 84 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

57 Metascore

Carmen's caught in a virtual reality game designed by the Kids' new nemesis, the Toymaker. It's up to Juni to save his sister, and ultimately the world.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Daryl Sabara, Alexa PenaVega, Antonio Banderas, Carla Gugino

Votes: 48,487 | Gross: $111.76M

The movie will be found wanting if one is not taken in by the 3-D visuals.

9. Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003)

R | 102 min | Action, Thriller

56 Metascore

Hitman "El Mariachi" becomes involved in international espionage involving a psychotic CIA agent and a corrupt Mexican general.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Johnny Depp, Willem Dafoe

Votes: 143,957 | Gross: $56.36M

Violent, pulpy, loopy fun, with Depp stealing the show.

10. Sin City (2005)

R | 124 min | Crime, Thriller

74 Metascore

A film that explores the dark and miserable town, Basin City, and tells the story of three different people, all caught up in violent corruption.

Directors: Frank Miller, Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino | Stars: Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba

Votes: 710,868 | Gross: $74.10M

Visually groundbreaking and terrifically violent, Sin City brings the dark world of Frank Miller's graphic novel to vivid life.

11. The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D (2005)

PG | 93 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

38 Metascore

A young boy is recruited by his imaginary friends Sharkboy and Lavagirl to help save their planet.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Cayden Boyd, George Lopez, Kristin Davis, David Arquette

Votes: 26,192 | Gross: $39.18M

The decision to turn this kiddie fantasy into a 3-D film was a miscalculation.

12. Planet Terror (2007)

Not Rated | 105 min | Action, Comedy, Horror

After an experimental bio-weapon is released, turning thousands into zombie-like creatures, it's up to a rag-tag group of survivors to stop the infected and those behind its release.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Rose McGowan, Freddy Rodríguez, Josh Brolin, Marley Shelton

Votes: 186,507

Packed with hot women, a ninja-like character and zombies, it's the kind of movie a 15-year-old would make with a limitless budget and little concern for ratings. Good thing he knows how to make an incredibly fun movie.

13. Shorts (2009)

PG | 89 min | Comedy, Family, Fantasy

53 Metascore

A young boy's discovery of a colorful, wish-granting rock causes chaos in the suburban town of Black Falls when jealous kids and scheming adults alike set out to get their hands on it.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Jimmy Bennett, James Spader, Kat Dennings, Jake Short

Votes: 6,173 | Gross: $20.92M

Shorts has imagination and energy, but most viewers beyond elementary school will likely tire of the kiddie humor and sensory overload.

14. Machete (2010)

R | 105 min | Action, Crime, Thriller

60 Metascore

After being set-up and betrayed by the man who hired him to assassinate a Texas Senator, an ex-Federale launches a brutal rampage of revenge against his former boss.

Directors: Ethan Maniquis, Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba

Votes: 180,804 | Gross: $26.59M

Machete is messy, violent, shallow, and tasteless -- and that's precisely the point of one of the summer's most cartoonishly enjoyable films.

15. Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World (2011)

PG | 89 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

37 Metascore

A retired spy is called back into action, and to bond with her new step-children, she invites them along for the adventure to stop the evil Timekeeper from taking over the world.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Jessica Alba, Jeremy Piven, Joel McHale, Rowan Blanchard

Votes: 19,454 | Gross: $38.54M

Burdened by a rote plot and unfunny scatological humor, All the Time in the World suggests that the Spy Kids franchise has run its course.

16. Machete Kills (2013)

R | 107 min | Action, Crime, Sci-Fi

41 Metascore

The U.S. government recruits Machete to battle his way through Mexico in order to take down an arms dealer who looks to launch a weapon into space.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Danny Trejo, Alexa PenaVega, Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba

Votes: 69,032 | Gross: $8.01M

While possessed with the same schlocky lunacy as its far superior predecessor, Machete Kills loses the first installment's spark in a less deftly assembled sequel.

17. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

R | 102 min | Crime, Thriller

46 Metascore

Some of Sin City's most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

Directors: Frank Miller, Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Votes: 138,327 | Gross: $13.76M

A Dame to Kill For boasts the same stylish violence and striking visual palette as the original Sin City, but lacks its predecessor's brutal impact.

18. Alita: Battle Angel (2019)

PG-13 | 122 min | Action, Adventure, Romance

54 Metascore

A deactivated female cyborg is revived, but cannot remember anything of her past life and goes on a quest to find out who she is.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Stars: Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali

Votes: 45,353 | Gross: $48.68M

Alita: Battle Angel's story struggles to keep up with its special effects, but fans of futuristic sci-fi action may still find themselves more than sufficiently entertained.

19. UglyDolls (2019)

An animated adventure in which the free-spirited UglyDolls confront what it means to be different, struggle with a desire to be loved, and ultimately discover who you truly are is what matters most.
