Cast & Crew
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.
... this proves as the opposite of Cabin Fever, you can spill a lot of blood in a gratuitous, but very entertaining way.
Make no mistake, this movie is a mess. But, wow, what a mess!
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.
A whiz-bang kick in the pants.
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.
A winking exercise in actors acting cool and the amoral joys of trigger- happiness.
