Machete Kills

Danny Trejo returns as Machete Cortez in Robert Rodriguez's grindhouse-inspired action comedy sequel. The grizzly Mexican one-man army is recruited by the President of the United States (Charlie Sheen, billed as Carlos Estevez) to take down a madman revolutionary and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has hatched a plan to spread war and anarchy across the planet. Also stars a machine gun breast-plated Sophia Vergara, Mel Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Vanessa Hudgens, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Lady Gaga.

As violent as its predecessor yet noticeably duller and less outrageous, Machete Kills is dragged to the finish line entirely by its director’s madcap energy and an absurd cast of major stars in strange cameos.

Machete Kills is great fun. I'm a huge Robert Rodriguez fan. I love Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn and Sin City. Danny Trejo is just so likeable and has such a distinctive look.

Trailers are like kids. You love them, adore them, and then - they grow up. They leave You Tube and go into cinemas as full-grown movies and, sometimes, you just wish they'd show a glimmer of the promise, the excitement, the joy they had when they were just a few minutes long. Instead? They let you down, growing up into full-length letdowns like Robert...
