Machete Kills, the sequel to Machete, starring the wonderful Danny Trejo, Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga and a host of recognisable Hollywood names, is completely mental.
Please bear with me as I explain the plot. Machete (yes, that’s his name), is a former policeman, who’s now a spy. Recruited by the President of the United States, played by Charlie Sheen, he’s pitted against a revolutionary who is seeking to blown up Washington D.C.. His weaponry? Machetes. His name? Machete. Other people’s weapons? Actually, at least one guy is also using machetes, from what I can tell. Someone here’s got a thing for big knives.
I’m actually going to see if I can hunt down the first film, because for some reason I feel like catching up on the story so far is a necessary step to talk. Welcome to the interesting minds of the Grindhouse collective, started by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. So, without further ado, here’s the trailer.
