During an operation of a Mexican Cartel, Machete Cortez and Sartana Rivera intercept the criminals alone, but another group arrives and a masked man kills Sartana. Machete is arrested, accused of killing his beloved Sartana and Sheriff Doakes hangs Machete. But the President of the USA Rathcock pardons and recruits Machete to kill the revolutionary Marcos Mendez that has threatened the USA with a missile with a bomb. Machete goes to San Antonio to meet the Miss San Antonio Blanca Vasquez that will be the liaison between Machete and President Rathcock. Then Machete goes to the brothel of Madame Desdemona to seek out the prostitute Cereza that is Mendez's mistress. Machete meets Mendez and learns that his heart is connected to the missile and only the arm dealer Luther Voz is capable to disarm the bomb. Now Machete needs to bring Mendez to the USA in less than twenty-four hours and save his new country in a dangerous journey with betrayals. Written by

In Sheriff Doakes' office, a campaign poster for Senator John McLaughlin from the first Machete (2010) is visible. See more »
When Voz puts on the metal mask, it is clearly just a part that will cover the face. (He's putting it on towards his face.) But in the next second it appears to be more like a helmet that completely covers the whole head which would have been impossible to be put on the way he did before. See more »
After all the credits have been shown, two short scenes are shown. One is an outtake of one of the last fight scenes, where an unexpected punch is delivered between two women, the other scene is a very short montage of the presidential character posing with guns. See more »
Usually sequels are worse than the originals, right? But obviously no rules apply to Machete or Machete Kills. The weaknesses and strengths of the two movies are pretty much the same: They are both hilarious and amazingly violent. Both have easy plots and all that.
The cast of characters is even more amazing this time. Of course there are some same characters in this film as well, but some of the new ones are even weirder. Sofia Vergara with the boob guns that could be straight from Austin Powers -movie? Cuba Gooding Jr., Lady Gaga and Antonio Banderas playing the same character? Charlie Sheen - I mean Carlos Estevez - as the president of United States? All the characters are ridiculous and greater than previously. Thank you, writers!
Machete Kills made me pay more attention to the dialogue. Of course, again it was filled with one-liners, but it was very colourful.
Like I said previously, the plot of this movie is very simple, but it took some wild B-movie extremes. It was amazing, and I won't complain about that. All those B-movie effects make these movies what they are.
Machete Kills is just as hilarious and violent as the first one. I don't think it needs any recommending. If you liked the first one, you'll like this one too, I promise.
