A powerful Chilean gangster uses everything in his power to stop the woman that wants to kill him, a sexy mercenary known as "the machinegun woman". The staggering sum of cash he offers for her head sets in motion an army of hitmen. And also, by accident, bursts in the life of naïve DJ Santiago, a common youth that will have to steel his guts against the underworld, and above all, survive the irresistible - and bloodthirsty - Machinegun Woman.Written by
Frightfest Glasgow again! (note: this movie I would never have seen, if it wasn't at a festival)
Okay, I know what this movie is trying to do. Problem is it does not succeed all that well.
I haven't seen many Spanish movies, and it being in a language I absolutely don't know didn't do it any favors I'm afraid. I have nothing against movies in foreign languages, but if they are, they damn well better be entertaining. Because if they are boring, it gets more boring when you don't know the language.
And this is a little boring. They have tried to make it Machete-ish - that kind of over-the-top-style, but it just didn't work for me.
It has a couple of cool scenes, some alright action, but not nearly enough or cool enough action. I was kind of relieved when it was over.
