Austin Chronicle - Marc Savlov
Plenty of killings abound, nevertheless the film is a masterful -- albeit warped -- love-story-cum-road-movie that revolves around three of the most invigorating performances of the year.
Miami Herald - Rene Rodriguez
Surprisingly enjoyable.
Philadelphia Inquirer - Steven Rea
This violently comic caper has some spunky charm going for it -- but has a lot of self-consciously hip, studied wackiness going against it.
TV Guide Magazine - Maitland McDonagh
Apparently intended as a larky, character-driven adventure with dark underpinnings, this attenuated road movie was originally envisioned as a vehicle for relative unknowns, and might have worked better that way.
USA Today - Mike Clark
Superstars usually avoid movies this spiritless, and it's tough to believe anyone could read this script and fail to realize the movie wouldn't end up going anywhere.

The Mexican (2001)

Jerry Welbach, a reluctant bagman, has been given two ultimatums: The first is from his mob boss to travel to Mexico and retrieve a priceless antique pistol, known as "the Mexican"... or suffer the consequences. The second is from his girlfriend Samantha to end his association with the mob. Jerry figures alive and in trouble with Samantha is better than the more permanent alternative, so he heads south of the border.
