Newt's movie review

The bigger, badder, bloodier second instalment of the El Mariachi series, but this time with big name actors and an effects budget. At times it feels like a remake of the original, but the story picks up from where the first one left off, and adds some really spectacular action sequences. It's laugh out loud funny, Buscemi and Tarantino are perfect as their characters, and the original El Mariachi characters return for cameos. Check it out.
