JUSTICE AND THE LAW AREN'T ALWAYS THE SAME THING,
This review is from: Machete Kills [DVD] (DVD)
This latest installment is practically a spoof of itself. The opening scene of coming attractions had me laughing. In this installment Machete (Danny Trejo) goes to Mexico, gets a guy, brings, him back, gets killed, comes back to life, and saves the world. That is pretty much it. The film makes fun of society, especially beauty pageants. Charlie Sheen as president? The film has major league stars lining up to take part of the fun.
This is perhaps the quirkiest in the series, taking the franchise in a new direction. There are flashbacks to a previous film, but knowledge of past films are not necessary, its a grindhouse. We watch it for hot girls with guns talking tough, heads getting cut off, and the explosions.
Great with popcorn.
Parental Guide: F-bombs. No nudity. 3D sex scene with Amber Heard.
