Storyline

Jack is a wanderer whose aimless roaming leads him to a number of interesting locations and into the company of many interesting people, and despite his fascination with bullfighting he leads a largely peaceful existence. When a crime boss' daughter is accidentally gored to death, Jack is implicated in the unfortunate event and singled out for termination by a seemingly unending army of lethal hitmen. As Jack wages an uphill battle for survival against the harsh desert terrain and a hail of gun smoke and lead, his will to live depends on his ability to exercise his demons and come to terms with the fact that he may not live to see another sunrise.

what's the point?
15 October 2005 | by zimbo_the_donkey_boySee all my reviews

of watching this, that is. I figured I was going to end up dragging the average down by pegging this as simply average but now I see that most people quite disliked it, while I simply did not care. I gave this flick a higher vote than the other DVDs I borrowed this weekend, as it's at least different. I'm tired of seeing tons of purely mediocre films getting high marks on IMDb due to all the teenage girls swooning over the hunks in them.

I pretty much agree with all of the previous comments. This movie makes no sense, and, while it was meant to be mystical (as was said), that's no excuse for the thing making NO sense (as was said.) It sure would have been useful for them to have added a commentary track to the DVD, wouldn't it? But they did not. They did add short interviews with three of the actors. One of the three was Dafoe, believe it or not. And he seemed to think that his role in this project was important, even though (as was said) his part is minor.

From viewers' reactions, I'd say they very much mismarketed this. They obviously should not have lulled average viewers into seeing this. I'm sure this would go over better after a night of heavy drinking or to groups of pseudo-intellectuals looking for a novel way to interpret this goofiness.

I hope this doesn't sound disrespectful but do roman catholics believe in this stuff? I know little about catholicism but everyone in this story is one and it seems to play a major part in what happens. Do Mexicans (who are most of the characters, the extras anyway) or catholic Americans enjoy this film more than the rest of us? Or maybe do such hate this film because it presents stuff they do NOT believe in? I'd like to know.
