Critic Reviews of "Desperado"Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Rodriguez's second feature may be a rambling, derivative exercise in gratuitous violence, but its determination to proceed as if the word 'restraint' never existed makes for gleeful entertainment.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Mr. Rodriguez may be good enough to make a film about anything, but Desperado would collapse if its characters had to do anything but play with guns.Los Angeles TimesAugust 15, 2002
What Rodriguez has essentially done in Desperado is make a slicker, more expensive copy of what came before. And what looked promising for $7,000 looks tiresome for a whole lot more.San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
The routine gets tiresome for the Mariachi, and for the audience, too, after about an hour.Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
Desperado is best when Rodriguez lets his playful side cut through the blare of a born filmmaker indulging his first chance at high-end Hollywood fireworks.USA TodayJanuary 01, 2000
Desperado, which is nothing but set pieces, snoozes between its scenes of carnage.eFilmCritic.comJuly 30, 2007
Within Rodriguez' pulp formula stories are little pockets of ingenuity.TV GuideMarch 13, 2007
Rodriguez's follow-up is unquestionably formulaic but mercifully free of the flat dialogue and arch one-liners that undermine so many action films.EmanuelLevy.ComJune 20, 2006
A slicker, more expensive version than El Mariach, except that what was promising and charming for $7,000 now looks tiresome and repetitious for $7 millionTheMovieReport.comDecember 05, 2004
An incredibly violent and infinitely entertaining shoot-'em-up.eFilmCritic.comFebruary 21, 2004
A supreme example of style vs. substance - and style wins!Reno Gazette-JournalSeptember 26, 2003
Desperado has merit as a guilty pleasure, but when the violence and action grow tiresome, the film has nothing to hang its hat on.
