In the third movie of Rodriguez's "Mariachi" trilogy, a Mexican drug lord pretends to overthrow the Mexican government, and is connected to a corrupt CIA agent who at that time, demands retribution from his worst enemy to carry out the drug lord's uprising against the government.Written by
According to Robert Rodriguez, the idea to do a third movie in his El Mariachi (1992) franchise came from his friend Quentin Tarantino, who, knowing Rodriguez to be a fan of Sergio Leone, also suggested the title. Tarantino is given special thanks in the closing credits. Actually, however, Rodriguez intended on making a trilogy from the beginning. You can read that in his book "Rebel Without A Crew".

The theatrical version was screened in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio. The DVD & Blu-ray version keeps the original High-Definition 1.78:1 aspect ratio. Only Netflix has the theatrical 2.39:1 aspect ratio of the film. See more »
I've seen some bad movies in my day, but this one ranks right up there with the worst of them. Several other posters noticed the same thing in the opening credits, the film was CHOPPED by Rodriguez. That credit is the understatement of the century. It takes a really bad movie for me to be unhappy about it...I hated this film. The story was hard to follow, the action scenes were so bad they were laughable, and the great cast was wasted on this wretched project. Johnny Depp is the sole bright spot in this movie, too bad the story didn't evolve around him. In the end, even he was relegated to a completely rediculous role. Who did Rodriguez think Depp was...Daredevil? Ugh. I wouldn't watch this again if you paid me $20.
