The first film was in that category of its cheesy and totally grindhouse mad and whilst both of those apply to this there is also a lot WHAT?! Going on that makes this more of an “it’s so bad its good” category which is fine as well if you are in the mood for it. I still had a really good laugh watching it and if you have friends who don’t mind the first film then you will have a ball! This is going to be a short review because the only way I can really describe this film is how I’d say never to make a film. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.
“Machete don’t tweet.” Loves him some helicopter kills though!
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.
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.
