Where to Watch: &Priv HD

Those who’ve seen Hollywood star Antonio Banderas’ Desperado and Once Upon a Time in Mexico, would very well know how Director Robert Rodriguez introduced Americans as also a global audience to a brand new concept of action movies in a neo-western mold against the backdrop of Mexican cultural tropes. His prequel to the two films, El Mariachi, is not only more Mexican than both of them put together, but is also the closest of the three to the Spaghetti Westerns of yore. Does that mean it’s better? Well, it’s definitely not better than Desperado, but then again, few films can ever be from any genre. What El Mariachi is though is a heady guilty pleasure of several B-movie thrills, packed to the brim with guns, guitars, babes and chase sequences, guaranteed to give you your money’s worth, or in this case, a felling time well spent.

So, are you excited about what to watch this weekend or what to watch this week and wondering whether El Mariachi is worth your time? Scroll down for my full El Mariachi review…
