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.
