When Reality Makes “Desperado” Look Less Gory

August 26, 2011 3 comments

How many of you remember Robert Rodriguez‘s 1995 hit movie “Desperado“? Maybe you thought the scene with the epic fight in a Mexican bar was a bit out there

Then again, that was before the current ‘War on Drugs’ in Mexico. You might have my seen my previous posts about its epic, gory and sometimes just plain fucked up levels of brutality.

Today we hear that- Gunmen burn Mexican casino; 45 die

MONTERREY, Mexico – Two dozen gunmen burst into a casino in northern Mexico yesterday, doused it with gasoline, and started a fire that trapped gamblers inside, killing at least 45 people and injuring a dozen more, authorities said. The fire at the Casino Royale in Monterrey, a city that has seen a surge in drug-cartel-related violence, was one of the deadliest attacks on an entertainment center in Mexico since President Felipe Calderon launched an offensive against drug cartels in late 2006.

Now that the real Mexico is officially more fucked up than the one depicted in Robert Rodriguez’s films, you might as well enjoy the famous clip from “Desperado”.

Wherein I inflict another music video upon you. This one is from when I was in high school. It does have a catchy tune, though the video is kinda cheesy.
