Consolidating his reputation after the unexpected critical success of El Mariachi, Robert Rodriguez upped his game and focused on his obsessions of crime and vengeance in a more sophisticated version of a similar story. Desperado is an enjoyable, no-holds- barred modern western that helped launch the American careers of Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek, and is highly representative of the deeply cynical action cinema of the 1990s.
