5.0 out of 5 stars Machetes, lots of machetes, 22 Oct 2013
This review is from: Machete Kills [DVD] (DVD)
Well you can't beat a bit of Mexploitation - and Robert Rodriguez certainly agrees with this sentiment. Machete Kills is the second in a burgeoning franchise of exploitation movies starring the granite-faced Danny Trejo as the fearsome blade-wielding ex-federale of the title; Trejo is joined by an eclectic range of actors and actresses here, many of whom also starred in the film's predecessor: Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba and Tom Savini all reappear, whilst faded silver screen luminaries such as Mel Gibson and Cuba Gooding-Junior also pop up - alongside the bizarrely casted Lady Gaga, Charlie Sheen as the straight-talking US president, and Antonio Banderas.
The movie itself is typically over-the-top, often ludicrously so, with the indestructible Machete implausibly bedding beautiful women when he gets a break from slicing heads off. Even so, the film is huge escapist fun, and the trailers for the will it/won't it actually be made third movie - the brilliantly titled `Machete Kills Again - In Space', certainly whetted my appetite for further anarchic thrills and belly laughs.
