Machete Kills (Trailer #1) Review
What was that?! Explosive nothing is all I can really describe it as, weak trailer. What happened to the hysterical Grindhouse trailer that made the first one so famous? (Here) Don’t know where to begin so I’ll just pick a complaint at random. There are too many guest stars, the characters are going to be watered down to make room for them all and it will not work, also half of them can’t act and aren’t even actors. Next up we have a narrator with such a strong Mexican accent I thought he was speaking Spanish until I recognized an English word and couldn’t believe it, especially in an international trailer because am pretty good with accents and this threw me way off. Lastly this trailer was basically a flash card presentation to show all its stars and its lost most of the…not charm but rough and cheap feel from the 80’s to the films production. It looks like it has been crushed by its own success.
My Score: D
Release date: 13th September 2013
Danny Trejo returns as ex-Federal agent Machete, who is recruited by the President of the United States (Charlie Sheen) for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man – he must take down a madman revolutionary and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer (Mel Gibson) who has hatched a plan to spread war across the planet.
Top 4 Scenes
4. It’s the President
It’s stupid, its non-sense and its crazy but it’s pretty funny and it started the trailer well, but sadly it doesn’t end that way.
3. Throwing Knives in a Kebab Shop
Just made me laugh and reminded me of the first film, also I am hoping ‘Throwing Knives in a Kebab Shop’ takes over from throwing stones in a glass house.
2. Crazy Mel Gibson
Is this the best film or role for him to be playing, a man who has on many occasions been considered out of his mind! Am sure it will be funny and hopefully he goes off his nut.
1. Gun Toting President
That’s what we want in our leaders, crazy and unhinged with access to weapons. I think Charlie sheen or should I say Carlos Estevez will be pretty good in this role.
Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this newest trailer?
