As if Danny Trejo wasn’t enough to guarantee a good time, Robert Rodriguez has pulled all the stops and collected an ensemble cast for his Machete sequel, Machete Kills. While keeping beautiful and highly talented originals Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez, Machete Kills features sexy newcomers Sofía Vergara, Amber Heard, and Alexa Vega to name a few. But Rodriguez didn’t stop there with the great cameos and screen stealing thespians. Recruiting seasoned actors like Mel Gibson, Cuba Gooding Jr., Antonio Banderas and Carlos Esteves (Charlie Sheen), this fast-paced sequel is sure to have as many explosions and bullets blazing as there is talent on the silver screen. I also know Robert Rodriguez’ cinematic style so I know to expect over-the-top action scenes, funny and sometimes cheesy dialogue, beautiful women kicking ass and Danny Trejo being a natural bad ass. Can you tell I’m excited about this movie? Like Insidious Chapter 2, Machete Kills releases on September 13th, 2013. The weekend of Friday the 13th is shaping up to be a great one for films this year. Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think of the Machete sequel.
