3.0 out of 5 stars As bonkers as you would expect..., 8 Nov 2013
This review is from: Machete Kills [Blu-ray + UV copy] (Blu-ray)
The titular character is back, and this time he has to thwart Mel Gibson, who has seen Moonraker too many times, and wants to start a new life on another planet, and also destroy the earth.

That's the plot.

If you appreciated the first movie, and the whole grind house thing, you will find a lot here. it's a movie that shouldn't be scrutinised, and to be fair, it's pretty much critic proof, because it's intentionally bad.

it doesn't make sense, Trejo is as good as he ever is, but it's the support that makes this film all the more mad.

Lady GaGa for example, playing a hybrid of Gooding Jr, and Antonio Banderas, Charlie Sheen as the president, and all the usuals from the first movie and the Rodriguez clan.

But the best thing here is Gibson. He is brilliant as the bad guy who has had Deja Vu for two years. he really relishes the absurdity of it all.

I liked it, it was fun, but all the while winking at the audience.

I doubt there will be a third movie, but count me in if there is.

When I saw Machete in a Glasgow cinema, there was a promise of Machete Kills Again in the credits at the end.
Now I'm away to order Machete Kills from amazon. ;)
