Once Upon a Time in Mexico
Source: Catholic News Service
Stylish third installment of the "Mariachi Trilogy" about a mysterious and nameless guitar-toting assassin (Antonio Banderas) who is forced out of hiding by a CIA operative (Johnny Depp) in order to thwart a drug lord's (Willem Dafoe) plot to kill the president of Mexico, and in exchange will be given the opportunity to exact vengeance on the man who murdered his wife and child. Despite its slickly choreographed carnage, director Robert Rodriguez follows the same pattern established in the earlier two films, resulting in a bloody revenge tale glamorizing violence and trivializing human life. Excessive gory violence, including profanely using a church as the setting for gunplay, brief partial frontal nudity and much rough language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
