Rodriguez pulls out all-star cast for 'Machete Kills'

What: “Machete Kills”

Cast: Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Carlos Estevez, Lady Gaga, Antonio Banderas, Jessica Alba, Demian Bichir and Mel Gibson

Writer: Kyle Ward

Director: Robert Rodriguez

The story: Secret agent Machete Cortez (Trejo) is recruited by the president (Estevez, better known to the world as Charlie Sheen) to stop a terrorist (Gibson) from launching a nuclear war in this over-the-top sequel.

The buzz: You had me at “President Charlie Sheen.” This may be the most perfect drive-in movie since, well, the original “Machete.”
