Machete Kills - matinee

Went to the Cinemark in Lufkin yesterday, wound up seein' Machete Kills...and I was disappointed. The first one was awesomely dumb over the top action, and when the title for the two sequels came up in the end, I was excited about 'em.

This one opens with a trailer for the third movie, Machete Kills Again ...In Space, which just took the piss out of the whole rest of the movie where Danny Trejo's wrong Mexican isn't just a man, but an unkillable force for vengeance.

There was an event in Austin a couple of years ago, where Mel Gibson attended the premiere for Get the Gringo, met with Robert Rodriguez durin' the screenin', and agreed to be in Machete Kills. His character in this is the main villain, almost Bond like, but every time he starts to get cool, some stupid ass thing gets in the way. His precognition. His Star Wars fandom. That dumb sound effect whenever he looks up and to the side.

Out of the whole thing, the only good part was the Chameleon, played by four different folks in the movie. Its insane, of course, but entertainin'.

And there are two bonus bits after the credits - a blooper and a bonus bit for the third, if there is a third.

Sunday matinee, and I was one of two folks in a theater that seats two hundred.
