Machete Kills (Red Band Trailer #2) Review
Now that’s more like it. I didn’t like the first one because it was a bit dull and boring. But with this you get action, laughs, terrible CGI and lots of sexy ladies. I think with a film like this you need a good red band because otherwise you are restraining 90% of the film from the trailer. This reminds me a lot more of the grindhouse trailer for the first one, even the voice over guy. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer.
My Score: A-
Release date: 11th October 2013
The U.S. government recruits Machete to battle his way through Mexico in order to take down an arms dealer who looks to launch a weapon into space.
What I liked
#5. The Music
If there’s one thing a ridiculous action film like Machete Kills needs it’s some fun off the walls music, and this music fit perfectly with this trailer. Bang, bang, bang goes quite well with gun shots, machete slices and helicopter kills.
#4. Death and Explosions!!!
Tried to get a good picture of someone getting slaughtered but it moved too quick so here’s a nice big explosion. Always love a good red Band trailer, you get all the blood and violence to really judge an R rated film.
#3. The Ladies
Why hello there ;D. I wasn’t actually a fan of the huge all-star cast of this film but this trailer has turned me round because they all seem to have parts and they make me laugh. Sofía Vergara looks like she is having a blast with her insane character and I like that. Even Gaga seems pretty funny in this, running people off roads and getting nut punched.
Also kids from the 90’s should recognise Alexa Vega of Sky Kids fame.
#2. Helicopter Kills
Never seen a trailer show two kill scenes involving a person being shredded with a helicopters blades before, but I like it. It’s why I watch these films, for the excessive kills. One of my friends hates the first film for stuff like this and he didn’t like the scene when he sliced open a person’s stomach and used his intestines to jump out a window and break through the window on the below floor. Best part of the film!
#1. “I am a genuine high calibre people fuckeruper”
Mel Gibson plays crazy with such ease it’s scary. Loved the idea of him playing a bad guy because…well just look at those eyes! His costume is mad, he sounds crazy and most importantly his dialogue so far is making me laugh (hopefully on purpose).
What I Didn’t Like
Flashy actions scenes, makes my reviewing difficult.
Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this newest trailer?
