I dug the hell out of Robert Rodriguez‘s Machete. I thought Danny Trejo did the character justice in what was originally only supposed to be a fake trailer. The full film was an over-the-top roller coaster ride that had me cheering and shouting.
Some called it poor and boring, but I was entertained the whole way through.
The idea of Machete Kills sounded like a fool-proof plan, because all Rodriguez would have to do is round up the original cast, toss in some new names and increase the violence by ten.
He’s done that and today we have our first look at the results.
This first trailer for Machete Kills leaves me cold. It looks like it’s going to be a fun ride, but there’s just too much going on with too many people. Rodriguez has spared no expenses bringing on Mel Gibson, Lady Gaga, Charlie Sheen, Amber Heard and a couple other “big” names.
I sure hope the film is a lot better than this all-over-the-place trailer.
