Fun Spoof of the Classic character
20 February 2004 | by tonybandersonSee all my reviews

A fun spoof of the classic Movie/TV/Book character featuring Jimmy Smits in the title role as a rebel who has the hero role pressed upon him. Cheech Marin does a credible Pancho, and joins with the band War in a great rendition of their hit "The Cisco Kid". The initial TV release featured a music video of Cheech and the Band that was an advertisement for the movie that was lost too soon, probably never to be seen again. A real shame! It was a highlight of the release. Smits is surprisingly good in the swordfights. Oh, Cisco! Oh, Pancho!
