If you have been reading this blog long enough you may recall my glowing review for Machete. In particular, I was rather hung up on Michelle Rodriguez in an eye patch and leather pants… well, the sequel will soon be upon us… and Michelle Rodriguez is still rocking the eye patch, but seems to have replaced her leather pants with some short shorts… that’ll do.
I don’t imagine words could even do justice to the massive amount of giddy fun Machete Kills is poised to deliver. Lady Gaga? Sofia Vergara with machine gun breasts? (I think Robert Rodriguez has some lady part/gun fetish… hello Rose McGowan and her machine gun leg in Planet Terror) Mel Gibson? And Charlie Sheen, aka Carlos Estevez (the first time he has ever used his real name… supposedly for Latino pride), as the President of the United States!! Now that’s a president I could get behind! Because lord knows, standing in front of that crazy mother fucker is taking your life in your hands.
Of course… Danny Trejo returns as the titular Machete, and this time the U.S. Government needs his help. What’s not to love? If you didn’t care much for the first film… you probably won’t care much for this. If, like me, you took great glee at the reckless abandon that is the world of Machete and enjoy a fantastic grindhouse film that pushes every limit imaginable in a spirit that could only be described as trash for trashes sake… then, like me, you will be thrilled to see this trailer.
Support Carlos Estevez in his newfound Latino pride,
