Review~ Peerless Danny Trejo Cuts A Path To The US Border; Machete Kills

Machete Kills, with Danny Trejo, Mel Gibson, Demian Bechir, Sophia Vergara & Amber Heard.  Director, Robert Rodriguez.  In the same vein as Machete, Planet Terror & Grindhouse; Rodriguez brings us another dreadful faux, comedy, exploitation film.  There’s plenty of blood & cheap thrills in this one.  Enough to satiate even the most jaded among us.

Trejo’s Machete is always a kick.  The somber-faced actor is always perfect in his role as an almost mythical, revenge killer.  Drafted by authority or love to save the day.  His demeanor & dry wit is delightful.  I always enjoy seeing him.

The inclusion of Gibson, Vergara, Lady Gaga, Antonio Banderas, Cuba Gooding Jr. & Charlie Sheen give comedic depth to this ride.  The film’s grainy texture, camp & two bit lines brings one back to sunnier days when political correctness was laughed at for the stupidity that it is.

I recommend this movie as it is a hoot & a holler.  Vergara’s dirty pillows are certainly something to witness in action.  It’s best to stay tuned through the credits.
