Marcela Del Valle,
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
Most definitely fun, if you let it though. A sleaze-ball of a film if there is one. There has been a revival (at least at the festival circus) and this movie does ride that wave perfectly. A tough woman that is still very attractive. It might depend on your taste in women I guess and your other "likes", but I'm pretty sure quite a lot of people will feel a "strange" attraction to the main character here.
Just as our "hero" of the movie does. While the female lead might not convince entirely (I thought she looked like she didn't really felt the "moment" or her "character" from time to time), this will not be something that will leave you with a bad impression of the movie. The simple "story" if you want to call it that, is just the backbone for the mayhem and violence that follows. If you like that, you'll be in for a treat, if not don't bother watching.
