    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Rodriguez is such a visual stylist, and the violence is so cartoonish, that the flurry of whizzing bullets and growing pile of bodies is not as offensive as it might be. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Starts having the same effect as one too many tequilas: the Hong Kong-style stunts, the goofy wisecracks, the foxy presence of Eva Mendes -- all of it becomes blurry and numbing. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    Paying homage to Sergio Leone, "Mexico" aims too high and, in the process, becomes more like every generic, overplotted drug-cartel-and-revenge flick out there. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Affectionately conceived, imaginatively staged and highly entertaining. show more

    Megan Lehmann New York Post

    It's the addition of Depp's corrupt CIA agent, Sands, that really makes this violent, over-the-top action film, with its maze-like plot, sing. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    A bloody fairy tale with no moral and a lot of juice. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    An epic unhinged, and while its best sections suggest a Loony Tune done by Sam Peckinpah and Emilio Fernandez, "Mexico" needs to be even crazier than it is. show more
