Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills is gearing up to be a splendidly cheesetastic sequel to 2010’s Machete. It amps up the Mexican pride, hilarious deaths, and number of beautiful women. With this second trailer, we get more of the plot. Machete (Danny Trejo) is hired by the President (Carlos Estevez) to help bring down a crazy revolutionary (Mel Gibson) threatening the USA with a missile.
I’m still excited as all get out for its October release, but I am a little worried about the final product. The first Machete did have a tonal issue which seems to be fixed here, but this sequel feels like an experimental “let’s see what kind of weird stuff we can throw in and get away with” phase. At the very least, Kills is going to be stupid fun. Machete Kills chops into theaters October 11th.
