Movie Review: Bring Me the Head of the Machine Gun Woman (2012)
I'm sure you can guess by the name, that this movie does not take itself too seriously. Director Ernesto Diaz Espinoza puts this film together in a really fun and creative way. The movie looks like you're playing the video game Grand Theft Auto in the country of Chile. Characters are introduced with a video game look and once Santiago gets started on his "mission," you will feel like you're watching the game. The shots of the car on the way to missions and the final battle scene shows that this was the exact look they were going for.
The flow of the film works for what it is going for and the run time is only 73 minutes. If you're in the mood for something artsy and Oscar-worthy, you will want to look elsewhere. If you're looking for late night laughs, insane violence and fun cheese then give it a shot.
"Bring Me the Head of the Machine Gun Woman" is subtitled as it was shot in Spanish. The original title is, "Traiganme la Cabeza de la Mujer Metralleta."
On the scale of up to 5 Pile Drivers, "Bring Me the Head of the Machine Gun Woman" receives 3.
