Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: 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. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: 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. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Aug 4, 2007

Fresh: In this movie, words and actions speak equally loudly. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Mar 13, 2007

Fresh: 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. – Geoff Andrew, Time Out, Aug 16, 2007
