    After looking at the cast, this movie might just have enough star power to be a box office hit

    the first MACHETE was a box office dud. Congratulations to Rodriguez clout in the industry in making a sequel to a film that was unable to recover it’s costs. Even GRINDHOUSE with the then fake MACHETE trailer before PLANET TERROR was a box-office bomb. I thought the excepted standard was if the previous film made a profit then one get’s to make a sequel. These MACHETE films and GRINDHOUSE films tend to find it’s core audience in home entertainment and not the cinema.

    Hope it’s better than the first one. Machete worked a lot better as a trailer than as a movie. It even worked better as a claymation Sprite commercial than it did as a movie. Machete was at least 30 minutes too long and, like most Robert Rodriguez films that feature large scale sequences with extras and the like, the direction was extremely sloppy. I might wait for this one to come out on video.
