Like Evil Dead, it's simply a comedy disguised as a full-blown horror film, full of gross sight gags and hilariously sarcastic characters. I'll admit, it begins rather slow, with only a couple of good action scenes. Then it picks up when it gets down into Mexico. After that, it's all out chaos. Most of the performances are good. Clooney makes a convincing killer, Keitel has no problem with his southern accent and Juliette Lewis (as Keitel's daughter) has her moments. However, when Tarantino is on screen, it makes me want to say to him, "Don't quit your day job". Despite Tarantino's miscasting in a pivotal role, the movie is pretty entertaining. Robert Rodriguez (El Mariachi) is getting really good at these slam-bang action westerns of his. Let's just hope he doesn't cast Tarantino in any more of his films.
