Desperado / El Mariachi

Overview

Ever since his debut in 1992, writer/director Robert Rodriguez has been keeping audiences entertained and amazed with his "guerrilla filmmaking" style and his ability to make engaging action films on shoestring budgets. He is a truly creative voice in the world of cinema, and this well-crafted disc offers a fascinating glimpse into his filmmaking processes while presenting two films in a professional, clean transfer.

Overview

Ever since his debut in 1992, writer/director Robert Rodriguez has been keeping audiences entertained and amazed with his "guerrilla filmmaking" style and his ability to make engaging action films on shoestring budgets. He is a truly creative voice in the world of cinema, and this well-crafted disc offers a fascinating glimpse into his filmmaking processes while presenting two films in a professional, clean transfer. The main attractions here are the special features: each side of the disc contains a "ten-minute film school," which is invaluable to anyone with an interest in making movies. There are also two full-length director's commentaries that are every bit as amusing and enlightening as the "film schools," helping to make up for the fact that the only other features present are theatrical trailers and cast/crew filmographies. Both films are presented in Dolby Digital 5.1, which serves Desperado rather better than El Mariachi, as Desperado's soundtrack was recorded on a much bigger budget, whereas El Mariachi's original source is barely more than mono. Both benefit greatly from this treatment, however, and make good use of all five channels as well as the sub. Desperado's picture quality isn't perfect -- there is some minor bleeding, especially with the brighter reds and yellows -- but it's acceptable. El Mariachi looks as good as can be expected considering its source material; much of the scratching and dust has been cleaned up and the result is a far superior version than anything released thus far, surpassing even the earlier laserdisc version. For action-film viewers or those who enjoy rare, behind-the-scenes looks at how films are made, this disc is not to be missed.

    PERFECTLY GREAT ACTION FLICKS

    Robert Rodriguez brought to life one of the most violent movies ever. Filled with guns, gore, and sex, Desperado is easily amoung the best action films ever made. What's more amazing is what he did on El Mariachi, which is another great action film, but shot for only $7000. It's odd, though, once you watch these, to think that this guy went on to make Spy Kids.
