USA 1995 Directed by Robert Rodriguez. Starring: Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Joaquim de Almeida, Steve Buscemi, Quentin Tarantino.

Mexico´s answer to Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, delivers here roaring action in a nice package, with rumbling rock music in the background. There are close points of similarity between them. Rodriguez has a bigger passion for action, but otherwise are we recognize the jokes and jests from Tarantino´s films.

Antonio Banderas is the guitar playing avenger in "Desperado", who after that his woman been murdered, is walking about with a whole armoury in a guitar case and clear up among Mexico´s lowlifes. He move like a panther, because every movement he makes is perfectly choreographed. Among all shooting is he meet the shapely librarian Salma Hayek, who he has a famous love-affair with. With her innocent brown eyes and her pouting mouth is she the delightful sight in "Desperado".

Rodriguez rapid talking buddy Quentin is also here and shows his dramatic talents. He crack a joke and has then his brain shot off. He get passed with great credit. All lowlifes are too brutal and unpleasant, and the action scenes are very unrealistic. An example is when Antonio Banderas goes into a bar full of scumbags. When it breaks out jumps Banderas up on the bar counter and shoots wildly all round, while bullets whistling by him. He perform tricks up there that makes him look like a ballet-dancer. When the gunpowder smoke has settled down are all scums dead. Banderas walks out from there without a scratch. As you understand is this not a deep film, but it´s the more entertaining. As an actionfilm are there few which can match "Desperado".
