Am I the only one who thought Al Pacino was the star of Bullfighter after seeing the boxart? Turns out that’s not the case, and its actually Willem Dafoe, who got involved with this film for God knows why. Robert Rodriguez and Guillermo del Toro have cameos in this movie too, the former of which is appropriate because Bullfighter is just an unsuccessful rip off of Ridriguez’s El Mariachi.

Frenchman Jack is dating the daughter of a Mexican crime boss. While hanging out in a bullfighting arena after hours, she decides that it would be a great idea to unleash a bull on her boyfriend. Apparently he really wants to be a bullfighter. Turns out he could use some practice, as she winds up being GOAR GOAR GOARED. If you’re not a wrestling fan, you won’t get that, but the point is that she’s dead.

Knowing that if he stays in town he’ll be destroyed by her father, Jack flees, hooking up with drifter Mary along the way. Thus begins this “fantasy adventure” that throws out the kind of absurdities that were present in El Mariachi. In El Mariachi, though, the absurdities were fantastic and made sense. The opposite is true of Bullfighter, which is just too random for its own good. The fact that the filmmaking is rather poor and at times annoying hampers it even more.

Meh.

DVD: Barebones.
