I think the 5 movies in the Desperado series are wonderful. They are from the 80's but they are classic. The person that wrote the review pointing out all the things wrong...yes I'm sure there's lots of things wrong in a lot if movies. If the movie/show has an interesting plot and keeps you entertained...what doesit matter? So, if you want to watch a movie that has great actors, an interesting plot and is good entertainment then watch one or all of the Desperado movies **********
