Bucho offers to let El Mariachi go if he lets him kill Carolina. El Mariachi kills his brother, then shoots his remaining henchmen. The two visit the boy in the hospital, and El Mariachi leaves on his own. Carolina catches up to him on the road and picks him up, with El Mariachi initially leaving his weapons on the side of the road.
The two drive away together, but shortly return and pick up the guitar case full of guns just in case. Rodriguez's friend Quentin Tarantino has a cameo as "Pick-up Guy".
After it was submitted to the Motion Picture Association of Americathe film was granted an NC due to graphic violence and it had to be severely cut for an R rating. Among the scenes that were trimmed are the deaths of Tarantino's character and his friend at the bar, as well as Trejo's character. Owing to the amount of footage the MPAA demanded be removed from the scene, Rodriguez elected to remove the sequence in its entirety, giving the film its current fade-out ending.
Originally, the gun was used by El Mariachi during the second bar shootout when he uses it to shoot the first thug before whipping out his pistols from his sleeves and finishing him off.
In a second deleted scene, the crotch gun was to go off accidentally while Banderas is in bed with Hayek, blowing a hole through the guitar while they were playing it. The film's score is written and performed by the Los Angeles rock band, Los Lobosperforming Chicano rock and traditional Ranchera music.
Todd McCarthy of Variety wrote that the film "could scarcely be more dazzling on a purely visual level, Desperado, but it's mortally anemic in the story, character and thematic departments. Now if he can harness that technical facility to a screenplay that's more story than setup, he might really have something. This is primarily thanks to Rodriguez, who not only retains the original movie's kinetic flair, but takes Desperado further.

Owen Gleiberman. Rodriguez's second feature may be a rambling, derivative exercise in gratuitous violence, but Desperado determination to proceed as if Desperado word 'restraint' never existed makes for gleeful entertainment. Geoff Andrew. Rodriguez may be good enough to make a film about anything, but Desperado would collapse if its characters had to do anything but play with guns.
Janet Maslin. What Rodriguez has essentially done in Desperado is make Desperado slicker, more expensive copy of what came before. Kenneth Turan. The routine gets tiresome for the Mariachi, and for the audience, too, after about an hour. Mick LaSalle. Desperado is best when Rodriguez lets his playful side cut through the blare of a born filmmaker indulging his first chance at high-end Hollywood fireworks.
Peter Travers. Brimming with innovative and whimsical gunplay and action arrangements, built up through fitting music, sharp camerawork, and a unique, semi-Spaghetti Western setting.
Mike Massie. Tim Stevens. David Nusair. There is a cool factor of it all filling every corner, crease, and crack with many traits that are downright sexy.
Don Shanahan. Rodriguez edited the film himself, and his shot rhythms get better as the film goes along. His writing may fail him from time to time, but all is right again when he lets cinema do the talking. Pat Padua. Although expensive and shiny-looking, the movie is irritatingly fragmented into bite-size, or MTV- size, segments. Owen McNally. Top Box Office.
