In "Machete Kills" (2013), Danny Trejo resumes his role as Machete, a deadly Mexican ex-Federale who is recruited by the U.S. government to take down a notorious arms dealer, Luther Voz (Mel Gibson). The movie is directed by Robert Rodriguez and written by Kyle Ward, making it a sequel to their 2010 film "Machete." The story revolves around Machete's quest to stop Voz, who plans to launch a missile into space that will cause the world to end. Along the way, Machete encounters a variety of eccentric characters, including a shape-shifting assassin named La Chameleon (Lady Gaga) and a brothel owner named Madam Desdemona (Sofia Vergara), who has a machine gun for a bra.

Alexa PenaVega plays Killjoy, a young rebel who joins forces with Machete in his mission to stop Voz. Other notable cast members include Michelle Rodriguez, who reprises her role as Luz, and Amber Heard, who plays Miss San Antonio, a beauty queen who turns out to be more than she seems.

The film is a stylish, over-the-top action movie with plenty of violence, humor, and sex appeal. It is set in a world that blends elements of old-fashioned Westerns with modern technology and pop culture. The dialogue is often cheesy and tongue-in-cheek, but the actors deliver their lines with gusto, making for an entertaining if not necessarily deep experience.

Machete himself remains a compelling character, a man with a tragic past who is driven by a desire to bring justice to those who have been wronged. Trejo brings a gritty intensity to the role, making Machete a relatable hero despite his tendency to use extreme violence to achieve his goals.

The supporting cast is also a highlight of the movie, with each actor given the opportunity to ham it up in their respective roles. Sofia Vergara is particularly memorable as Madam Desdemona, who unleashes a barrage of bullets from her chest while screaming Spanish profanities.

The action sequences are well-choreographed, with plenty of gunfire, explosions, and hand-to-hand combat. In one standout scene, Machete battles a team of assassins while dangling from the side of a train. The visuals are often comic book-like in their exaggerated nature, making for a fun and visually striking movie.

The soundtrack is also worth noting, with a mix of traditional Latin music and more contemporary tracks that fit well with the movie's style. The music adds to the film's sense of energy and helps to make the action scenes even more exciting.

Overall, "Machete Kills" is a fun, engaging movie that doesn't take itself too seriously. While it may not be for everyone, fans of Rodriguez's previous work or of over-the-top action movies in general are sure to enjoy it.

Machete Kills is a 2013 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 48 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.6 and a MetaScore of 41.
