The Cisco Kid and his sidekick Pancho were used to riding around Mexico and dealing with injustice. In this film they inspire Mexican peasants to oust settlers from the Second French Empire.
Just before its initial airing, Todd Everett of Variety wrote: "The Cisco Kid proves an ideal role for Jimmy Smits, and Cheech Marin has never been more appealing than he is as comic foil Pancho. Film is also Luis Valdez’s most across-the-board project yet, with even wider potential appeal than La Bamba."
The movie has a score of 6.1 out of ten on the IMDB website.
