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 »

A more insane and wilder Machete of excessive proportions
Machete Kills, more insane, than it's predecessor is like a roller-coaster ride of shocks and surprises, with little time to catch your breath. A great cast line of old and new faces, the best performance, that of Gibson as Luther Vox, who has diabolical plans for the future of U.S. citizens, by launching a rocket into space, eradicating everyone, so a new evil race can take over. Hit-man for hire, Trejo, has one good reason to take down Vox, as seen at the start with Alba's itty bitty part, Gibson, her shooter, obvious like a wart on a nose. The over the top violence, comical not shocking like the decapitation of heads, arms, ligaments, what have you. Wait to you see what Gibson's formula does, reducing people to jelly, where if trouble gets in his way, as he has a few hundred clones on stand by. He plays evil great and has a ball doing it. He also has a few nasty weapons of death, one a big sharp slicer, shaped like the Batman and Robin logo, you wouldn't want to be under. This Machete is open ended, so the third installment should be coming in the not too distant future. Imagining a movie more insane and wild than this is frightening. Just take this movie for what is, a wild, exciting, escapist ride, with ludicrous moments, more so near the end.
