Once Upon a Time in Mexico

 (2003)

Once Upon a Time in Mexico Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

The saga of the mythic guitar-slinging hero, El Mariachi, continues in Robert Rodríguez’s bravura action epic 'Once Upon a Time in Mexico'. The new adventure is set against a backdrop of revolution and greed. Haunted and scarred by tragedy, el Mariachi has retreated into a life of isolation. He is forced out of hiding when Sands, a corrupt CIA agent, recruits the reclusive hero to sabotage an assassination plot against the president of Mexico, which has been conceived by the evil cartel kingpin Barillo (Willem Dafoe). But el Mariachi also has his own reasons for returning - blood and revenge. The desperado returns with his two trusted sidekicks Lorenzo and Fideo, and the legend of El Mariachi reaches new levels of excitement and adventure.

Once Upon a Time in Mexico Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Once Upon a Time in Mexico is one of the early digitally-filmed pictures, and it looks borderline spectacular through the prism of Sony's near faultless 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. Detail ranges from strong to exceptional; close-ups of faces reveal every pore on the actors' faces, while the transfer is also adept at picking up the finest textures as seen on El's new but unfinished guitar or the many roughly-textured stone, brick, and concrete places and things around the frame. Colors favor a warm, yellowish/orange tinge, but the transfer also reveals brighter shades -- vibrantly green trees or loud outfits, for instance -- crisply and naturally. Flesh tones do feature that heavy orange push, but blacks appear true throughout. The transfer is meticulously clean, free of any unwanted debris and featuring minimal noise. Unfortunately, light banding, a touch of shimmering, and one or two unnaturally jagged edges are visible, but such seem inherent to the source rather than a fault of the transfer. All said, Once Upon a Time in Mexico looks consistently strong, with several scenes bordering on the superb. Another job well done by Sony.


Once Upon a Time in Mexico Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

It wouldn't be a Robert Rodriguez Mariachi movie without a killer soundtrack, and Once Upon a Time in Mexico's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack doesn't disappoint. This room-filling, heart-pounding listen leaves no sonic stone unturned; there's no shortage of volume with any of the picture's many sound effects, most of which represent some form of devastating weapons fire. Shots erupt from all over the soundstage, sending lead through the listening area and shattering glass and spraying blood every which way but tangibly real. With the raw volume comes not only tremendous power but also the necessary clarity to bring it all together. Mexico's track is a bit more refined than Desperado's, but it's not quite as active. Both offer superb listens, but this one seems just a bit more grounded in reality. The track also excels in delivering precision musical notes as well as seamless environmental ambience in the form of light blowing winds, chipring insects, or even the metallic clank-clank-clank of El's spurs. Sony's high-octane lossless soundtrack does the film proud, and with the final piece of the puzzle -- pitch-perfect dialogue -- firmly in-place in the center speaker, this track may be labeled an unequivocal winner.
