A serendipitous meeting on the streets of Dublin between a down on his luck Irish street performer and a poor Czech immigrant sparks a bond that plays out in this hip, modern day music film. ONCE follows the two as they write, rehearse and record the songs that reveal their unique love story.

James Berardinelli ReelViews | September 16, 2003

A mess of a movie that nevertheless entertains because each individual piece stands high enough on its own merits that it's not necessary to look hard at the nonsensical linking material.

Richard Roeper Ebert & Roeper | September 15, 2003

... this proves as the opposite of Cabin Fever, you can spill a lot of blood in a gratuitous, but very entertaining way.

Andrew O'Hehir Salon.com | September 13, 2003

Make no mistake, this movie is a mess. But, wow, what a mess!

Michael O'Sullivan Washington Post | September 12, 2003

Depp, a mere two months after his scene-stealing turn in Pirates of the Caribbean, once again is the best thing about a very silly movie.

Ann Hornaday Washington Post | September 12, 2003

A whiz-bang kick in the pants.

Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle | September 12, 2003

Despite the movie's dark humor, violence and the occasional nonvoluntary facial surgery that will drive away the queasy, Once Upon a Time in Mexico is the most crowd-pleasing film in the series.

Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel | September 12, 2003

A winking exercise in actors acting cool and the amoral joys of trigger- happiness.
