The review of this Movie prepared by Sasha B

The hero from El Mariachi is back and out for revenge. In the previous movie his girlfriend was murdered and he suffered a horrible injury. Now Mariachi is hunting the drug dealers behind it in this mediocre sequel to the awesome, El Mariachi. And this time the villain is his own brother, the most powerful drug dealer in all of Mexico.
