Machete Cortez (Danny Trejo) is on an intergalactic mission in space doing what he does best: Slashing bad guys, bedding gorgeous hispanic chicas and just being an all-round badass.
Back to earth, before all the space stuff, Machete and Sartana (Jessica Alba) are attempting to capture crooked US military supplying the Mexican drug cartel. The mission goes terribly wrong and Sartana is killed. Machete is taken prisoner by some evil American vigilantes, who want to slowly torture him to death. Fortunately, Machete’s thick skin saves him, well that and the fact that the president of the United States himself (Carlos Estévez aka Charlie Sheen) wants a word with him. Machete is sent on a mission to save Washington D.C. from a schizophrenic Mexican revolutionary who wants to bomb the American capital. In the process he finds out that maybe the real bad guy is a guy named Voz (Mel Gibson) who plans to destroy the earth and flee to space. Continue reading
Or should I say Carlos Estevez? What? You don’t know who that is? How can you call yourself a Charlie Sheen fan?
Just kidding (kinda). This clever film marketing. While I thought the posters for Robert Rodriguez‘s upcoming Machete Kills were boring and repetitive, copying too much from the 2010 campaign, this poster for Charlie Sheen’s The President is pretty cool.
What I like about it is that, well it’s Charlie Sheen holding a machine gun, but also that it says ‘Carlos Estevez’ (which is Charlie Shee’s real name). Finally embracing his latino heritage and looking really fit and healthy I am now very excited for this Machete sequel.
The film opens October 4, 2013. Meanwhile check out Robert Rodriguez’s new short Two Scoops: It’s a hoot!
