Machete Kills

Rated R / 1 hr 47 min / Action - Crime - Thriller

What is it about?

Machete Kills. Seriously...  what more do you need to know?  OK Ok..  Machete and his girlfriend Sartana are investigating an arms sale that goes bad.  Sartana ends up being killed (Noooooo not Jessica Alba!!) after finding out that a missle was part of the sale.  Machete finds her body, and is knocked out shortly after.  Now a radical named Mendez has aimed the missle at Washington.  The President recruits Machete to save the day.

You will like it if...

You liked the first one.  Everything is done in the over-the-top grindhouse style Robert Rodriguez helped to bring back in movies like Machete and Planet Terror.  The action is just as crazy and stylized as the first movie.  There are a few things that make this movie inferior to the original.  Some of the humor of the first one is missing or the same jokes are repeated.  The story is crafted mostly to set up a third movie, so it feels incomplete.  It is more of the same Machete action in a shiny new package.
