Visible crew/equipment: When the limousine explodes (flying several feet into the air) after being hit by the second rocket, in one or two shots (most noticeable right before it explodes, during the rocket POV shot), you can see chains attached to parts of the limo, that were not there in previous shots.

El Mariachi: Give me the strength to be what I was, and forgive me for what I am.



When the bad guys try and kill Antonio Banderas in the bookstore, after killing about the third bad guy, you can clearly see his gun lock on an empty chamber, but there's a cut and he immediately carries on shooting.



Carlos Gallardo, who played El Mariachi in the prequel to Desperado, El Mariachi (1992), was given a cameo role in Desperado as Campa, the mariachi with the two machine-gun guitar cases.
