Hitman "El Mariachi" becomes involved in international espionage involving a psychotic CIA agent and a corrupt Mexican general.
Cheech Marin refers to Antonio Banderas as "the biggest Mexican ever seen.", despite Banderas being a Spaniard, not a Mexican. Banderas is 5'9", which is still taller than the average Mexican male (5'7"), but Robert Rodriguez, who is 6'2", really is "the biggest Mexican."
I never heard of him.
Agent Sands: The man you recommended.
Belini: The guitar fighter?
When Sands shoots Ajerdez he is wearing his fake arm which he had no means to carry in to the scene and he couldn't have hidden it on his person.
The guard who talks about how he was tortured once is listed as "Left Nut" in the credits.
The theatrical version was screened in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio. The DVD & Blu-ray version keeps the original High-Definition 1.78:1 aspect ratio. Only Netflix has the theatrical 2.39:1 aspect ratio of the film.
