DesperadoDesperado (1995) – Originally written August 2003

*** This review may contain spoilers ***


I’m not even going to pretend that I’ve seen the first of these films (“El Mancia” or something similar), but whilst I confess to at times finding the plot of this film confusing, in the end of the day it’s good, wholesome, gory violence with a magnificant bad guy who is a little bit nuts and with a hero in Banderos who drives the film along well up until a suitable ending. Maybe it won’t win awards, and it might not be my favourite film by a long stretch of the imagination, but I can certainly see why people enjoy it.

Full marks for effort.
