Rodriguez is a master
18 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

This was Robert Rodriguez's follow up film to El Mariachi, but was released after Desperado. I must say that Rodriguez has some of the best talent as a director. He himself can make big movies with Jerry Bruckheimer. Roadracers is a showcase mainly for Rodriguez because he makes a made for cable movie turn into a movie that should have been on the big screen. Scene stealer Salma Hayek makes her debut here. All I have to say is that Rodriguez needs to make more movies without Tarantino and make his own with a bigger studio like Paramount or Warner Bros. other than Dimension. Rodriguez has a lot of talent and will be remembered better than Tarntino.
