I enjoyed "El Mariachi" so I was looking forward to seeing this but I'm disappointed. The soundtrack was enjoyable, the photography was beautiful and at times the editing was simply stunning and clever, but on the whole it contributed to a confusing and disorderly film. Johnny Depp's performance was outstanding as the CIA agent but even that can't redeem this mish-mash of a film. There was too much going on, too many stories and characters, and for the first half hour of the film I had my work cut out trying to keep track of it all. It's incredibly violent, repulsively so at times, and although I was reminded of the spaghetti westerns, the humour was lacking or laboured.
