Hopefully this one doesn't constantly slap you in the face with its agenda like the first one. The cast of fly honey dips looks pretty tight. I may be the only dude on this site that thinks Lady Gaga is sexy. Flame away & count me in. smile.gif










Michelle Rodriguez
Amber Heard
Mel Gibson
Jessica Alba
Charlie Sheen
Sofía Vergara
Antonio Banderas
Vanessa Hudgens
Alexa Vega
Danny Trejo
Cuba Gooding Jr.
William Sadler
Demián Bichir
Lady Gaga

Yes. Very much so. The first one was ruined by taking all that immigration crap WAY TOO seriously. Made the movie totally un-fun as it should have been.

Even so... I'll go see this. Lovin' the cast so far. Woop!

If this movie is as bad as the last one, they should call it "Machete Stinks".

Didn't the first one bomb? How did it get a sequel?

Come on, what do you expect of a spinoff from a faux trailer from RR's Grindhouse movie? He loves this stuff....and I'd bet it sells a lot more than Machete's listed budget of 10M and gross of 44M I see in a little search (that include all disc sales or not?).

Does this kinda cast just do it as a favor to RR or for fun? Doesn't seem that they're getting their normal paychecks in this kinda budget (altho couldn't find one for Machete Kills).

Then there's going to be Machete Kills Again, too smile.gif

Probably, but not sure why.
The guy hasn't done anything of any substance in quite awhile.

Isn't likely the cast is getting much more than scale.

Speaking of gatling guns...


At the instruction of Machete himself, this patented Enhancer 2000 will be installed at theaters prior to the film's opening:

The first film was awful. Unbearable at times. It took itself way too serious and the ultra left wing political bent was just so extreme all I could do was roll my eyes. RR can make good corn. Just check out Planet Terror (from Grindhouse), but he failed miserably with Machete.

Why a sequel? because Hollywood hates original ideas. The first one did make some coin in the end so they figure it's an easier sell this time.

The trailer was screened prior to the Fast 6 showing I attended and it was received with nothing but groans.

I don't recognize this as "ultra left wing politics" at all.
What it really was trying to do was pander to the Hispanic community who believe themselves to be victims of whitey.
