Reviews

Ruthless Argentine kingpin Che Longana uses everything in his power to stop the woman who wants to kill him - a sexy and bloodthirsty mercenary known as "the machine gun woman" (Fernanda Urrejola). The staggering sum of cash he offers for her head sets in motion an army of hitmen. Caught up in the action is naïve DJ and avid gamer Santiago Fernandez (Matías Oviedo) who overhears a secret meeting with Longana and his henchmen. At this point Santiago s life turns into a violent video game complete with missions, guns, sexy women and brutal violence. His ultimate mission is to bring in the Machine Gun Woman and he has only 24 hours to do it. Written and Directed by Ernesto Diaz Espinoza (Mandrill, Kiltro, and ABC s of Death)

If the title doesn't quite do the trick, the cover of the DVD should tell you all you need to know when figuring out whether Ernesto Diaz Espinoza's new film Bring Me the Head of the Machine Gun Woman is for you.

It's a wantonly corney, sub-Rodriguez affair that transposes 70s blaxploitation to modern day Chile and plonks a Grand Theft Auto vibe on top of it - a number of the scenes track cars through traffic from behind the rear window.

You hear a lot of complaints that modern action films ever more closely resemble video games: this one goes out of its way to - but the superimposition of the GTA look on a dented toyota stuck in Satiago rush hour traffic is kind of the point - in any case it's an amusing conceit.

Matias Oviedo has fun as geeky DJ thrust reluctantly in between dastardly contract-killing mobster Che Longana (Jorge Alis) (amusingly subtitled as "Che Sausage") and his uzi toting ex-moll (Fernanda Urrejola), who signs off her texts "MGW". Now that's class. Actually - given that "Machine Gun Woman", in Spanish, is Mujer Metralleta, that's some sort of weird continuity prolapse - but it's cool all the same.

Urrejola is predictably magnetic in the role - with a body and clobber like that, it'd be hard not to be - and while Bring Me The Head of the Machine Gun Woman isn't quite as funny as by rights it ought to be, and the editing is a bit rough in places, the appropriately pulsating cheese of Rocco's soundtrack keeps everything well oiled and moving along: at 75 minutes there's certainly no chance to get bored.

Good stuff.

I knew it was going to be exploitation through and through, but I was expecting something a bit better. It has all the same cliched gags, the faux-dated grain and totally exaggerated charactertures. The gag that annoyed me most was the Grand Theft Auto gag, sure it's funny once, but to repeat the same music, camera angle and on screen mission title every time the lead drove his car. Its overkill, plain and simple. Despite all that, it has the same infectious energy that makes films like this so entertaining, it just rests of the cliches too much. Even though it's far from a good film, I don't think the film is entirely to blame. To get the most from a film like this you really need to be a little drunk and in a audience with like minded souls. As a at home DVD release, it just doesn't work.

Of course one expects an item like this to be over the top, somewhat silly and hugely exaggerated, surely an example of the tongue-in-cheek sexploitation genre. That is why one orders it in the first place. In all that, one is not disappointed. And of course a thing like this should be judged within the limits of its genre.
What is disappointing is the fact that this movie has been made without any enthousiasm for that genre. Too much shlemility and the fiction that it is all a stupid video-game take away much of the fun. Not boring enough to turn it off halfway, but bad enough to feel like a total waste of time after viewing all of it.
Now, people who think this sort of movie is ALWAYS a waste of time, would never buy it anyway. But alas, it seems to have been made by those who agree with them...
I suppose it might be vastly amusing for someone who is an avid gamer, and who watches it high on weed...
