3D trailers are great if you’re watching them in a 3D movie theater with your 3D glasses on, but so-called 3D trailers on the Internet usually aren’t anything special. Since the effects don’t work on our computers, most “3D trailers” just turn out to be 2D trailers with action-packed scenes that we can sorta-kinda picture looking exciting in 3D.
But leave it to Robert Rodriguez‘s gleefully over-the-top Machete Kills to go over-the-top with its 3D Internet trailer. No, not even the world’s toughest ex-Federale can make your laptop suddenly support 3D technology. But he can offer a video with explosions so big, they can’t be contained by your average video player. See what we mean after the jump.

In Machete Kills, director Robert Rodriguez once again celebrates guns, babes, and manly men. This sequel to Machete finds many ways to combine those three factors, offering a new permutation every few minutes. The action is dumb and goofy and very self aware, and Machete Kills is occasionally kind of a blast. The cast is game for anything, and few actors stick around long enough to wear out their welcome.
If only the same could be said for the film, which is long, soggy, and distracted by it’s own excess. Machete Kills is a two-hour Robot Chicken special that features humans instead of action figures, and its schtick wears thin well before everyone runs out of energy. Read More »
At this point you probably know what the Robert Rodriguez film Machete Kills is all about, so a new red-band trailer is just a mid-week distraction. But if you’re looking for the sort of distraction that involves wild violence, exploitative action, and a knife fight with Mel Gibson, this is going to be perfect.
This sequel to Machete is a cavalcade of stars, or at least of personality. Danny Trejo returns as ex-Federale Machete, and Gibson is a bad-guy arms dealer, Charlie Sheen (aka Carlos Estevez) is the President of the United States, and Amber Heard, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofía Vergara, Lady Gaga, and Cuba Gooding Jr. all show up. That’s not even the whole of the cast.
Machete Kills opens in October, but it premieres this Thursday as the opening night selection of Fantastic Fest. We’ll have a report after that premiere. Read More »
