Machete might be the greatest thing that has ever happened to cinema, even though they used a boob double for Lindsay Lohan. The first film simply titled ‘Machete’ was a piece that I would put in the same breath as Citizen Kane. Some might say it’s the Citizen Kane of our generation. I would be hard pressed to disagree with that statement.
Machete’s machete is his rosebud, the parallels between the two films are almost strange, maybe Machete is just an adaptation of Citizen Kane in a setting for a new generation? Surely Robert Rodriguez will take that with him to his grave.
Anyways, Orson Welles…I mean Robert Rodriguez is at it again with Machete Kills, the sequel to the original, with a star studded cast of Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas, Cuba, Gooding Jr., Charlie Sheen, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez and Lady Gaga. The plot is ridiculous, which is why you should watch this trailer.
