He was a Mexican Secret Service
agent, fired for sleeping with the president's daughter (Maribel
Oporto). He decides to work as a Mariachi. Meanwhile, the president
has managed the largest cocaine seizure in Mexican history. When the
bad guys decide to crash a party at the presidential residence and
hold all of the guests til they get their drugs back, guess which
mariachi band is playing the gig?
|Maribel shows breasts
during the sex scene with Bravo, and two unknowns are seen topless in
a pool with the bad guy. Bravo, of course, takes on the entire army of
attackers, rescues everyone, and wins the girl.

|Very little is available
on line about this film, and I suspect that the DVD was the first time
this was shown anywhere. It is a very respectable action film, sort of
like a Van Damme movie, but with a more likable star.
I love the idea of an
unemployed Mexican secret agent working as a mariachi. I guess all the
bullfighting jobs were filled. Does he like his Tequila Martini
shaken, or stirred?
