It's one of the highlights of the movie. I thought it was absolute genius. Simply oozing sexuality, Hayek smolders like desert sand and steals the film. Sinking us back into the gritty life of a tormented guitar player, Rodriguez sets the stage for an amazing film. He is the proverbial salad bar of cinema.
Banderas' ability to control this enraged man was spectacular. The Mariachi's form of questioning normally leads to several dead, a cinematic gun fight, and some classic Sergio Leone verbiage. Mark me don't go looking for some Oscar winning dramatic performances. He has taken elements from his first film and expanded them to new levels. I've heard many people say that they couldn't follow the plot of this flick.
You see, El Mariachi lost the love of his life and his ability to play guitar after he's shot through the hand at the hands of Bucho's goons and so, El has a score to settle. He does keep you entertained, though, once you check your brains at the door and begin watching the show. בכל מקום בו המריאצ'י מזכיר את שמו של בוצ'ו, הבריונים שלו מנסים לחסל את הנגן - אבל הוא יכול לכולם ומרחץ דמים ממתין מאחורי כל פינה. It's about as original as a Hollywood remake and its lack of any sort of ambition doesn't limit its scope but merely means that it reaches its targets with ease. I'll just try to limit them to a few.
Unfortunately, our hero does not escape unscathed and finds himself being healed by the likes of Carolina, a bookstore beauty played by Selma Hayek. The stunts and effects were first rate and extremely entertaining. All his emotions smouldering just beneath the surface. The Quentin Tarantino cameo is especially entertaining and so are almost every Mexican bad guy that are all in one way or another over the top. Also the photography is absolutely first rate.
The first eight minutes let you know what you are in for: outrageousness. It has tons of fun in it which makes the movie extremely likable to watch. He builds suspense and also suspicion all at the same time. Tongue firmly in cheek, the cartoony action and simple revenge story combine to create a fabulously entertaining film that still stands out as a truly unique picture. Banderas is perfect as our 'new' Mariachi and the chemistry between him and Selma Hayek cannot be contested. Whether the movie is really dumb or its just tongue-in-cheek humor by Rodriguez, it has super-style and fun to watch. The headline here states one of them.
He is able to give us exactly the right amount of action, drama, and comedy for our liking. Some of the action scenes are so outrageous you laugh out loud. . But it is fun,pure unadulterated fun. After announcing his arrival in town by taking out Bucho's bar, El finds himself helped by glamorous bookstore owner Carolina Salma Hayek in his seemingly impossible quest. Together they build a steamy relationship that will help our Mariachi reach his final destination.
עם קרולינה לצידו, חובשת את פצעיו החדשים כל פעם ותורמת כמה יריות מדי פעם, אל מריאצ'י מחסל עשרות מאנשיו של בוצ'ו - הכל כדי לסגור חשבון ולהתחיל חיים חדשים. Hollywood gave him the tools to build an amazing 'sequel'. This time, Antonio Banderas steps into the role of the troubled Mariachi as he continues his quest to rid Mexico of the corrupted drug lord that destroyed his life. They worked as our two main focuses of this film. My favorite was a guy shooting rockets out of his guitar case! I would recommend this film to anyone who is wanting some great entertainment. The action is way over the top but it works very well since the movie obviously doesn't take itself serious.
And if plausibility and complex story lines are what you're looking for then move on because this film is as simple as one of Jerry Springer's guests. אל מריאצ'י, גיטריסט לשעבר, נודד מעיירה לעיירה, מחפש את בוצ'ו שרצח את אהובתו וירה לו ביד - כל שנשאר לו היא תיבת הגיטרה, המלאה בתחמושת, והרצון לנקום. A quick ten-minute blast with a couple of meaty pistols in each hand can easily dispel the day's stresses and strains better than a hour on a couch - trust me. If something worked subtly the first time, filmmakers think that to improve on it is by bombarding the audience with it the next time. A must see, in my opinion. I think they totally missed the point of this movie.
While giving us this deeply rooted character hell-bent on destroying this drug lord, he also lets our imaginations wander with his comical and cartoonish action sequences. Coupled with some humorous moments with Steve Buscemi and Quentin Tarantino, this film successfully stood on its own two feet thanks not just to the action, but the actors in their respective roles. And this despite humorous cameos from Steve Buscemi, Quentin Tarantino and Cheech Marin. As is the almost Kubrickesque atmosphere of the film. Opposite him, Salma Hayek has never been or looked better than she was here.
Rodriguez has done this by giving the world depth and outside characters. It's an 8-minute scene at a bar involving a story told by Steve Buscemi. All the fun characters, dialog and action sequences make you forget that there isn't really a story. Although it may upset the moral minority to admit it, being able to unleash the violent impulses that exist in us all in a safe and socially acceptable manner is hugely beneficial to one's emotional state of mind. Skip the plot,and go straight to the action. Its called lets find the bad guy,and his henchmen,and kill them.
