Yay!! A day off at last!! So how about a new Review for all my Gentle Visitors? Well… I’ve got one for you, and given your Favorite Catgirl’s recent cranky anti-social mood of late, I suppose it’s downright appropriate to do one for the Chilean Action comedy exploitation mash-up “Tráiganme la Cabeza de la Mujer Metralleta” or as it’s known here in the US, “Bring Me the Head of the Machinegun Woman!”.
Our synopsis reads like this: “Santiago Fernandez is an aimless young slacker in Chile who is content wasting his life away spending hours on the couch at his Mom’s apartment playing Grand Theft Auto and fantasizing about an exciting life of crime and gun fights. By night he works a dead-end job as a DJ at a club owned by ruthless Argentinian gangster boss Che Longana. One evening, Santiago finds himself trapped in a bathroom stall as Longana holds a secret meeting to make known his offer of $300 million pesos for the head of Machine Gun Woman, his once ex-girlfriend now turned lethal hit-woman, who wants him dead. Discovered eavesdropping on the conversation, Santiago’s only choice to avoid being executed is to lie, claim he knows Machine Gun Woman, and offer to bring her in for the reward. Although the Gang-lord doesn’t believe his story for a moment, he is still given 24 hours to make good on his claim. It’s then that Santiago’s loser life turns into a real live action video game of its own chock filled with missions, guns, sexy women and brutal violence.”
Crazy exploitative action, 70’s Grindhouse style, with all the sexy “bad girl” action a bad movie junkie like me could want. Ooooohhhh yes!! Is our bad girl anti-heroine gonna go hog wild crazy with her personal Arsenal of Doom? Are ridiculous numbers of slimy scumbags gonna get their butts kicked? You betcha!! 😉 So… for a look at the details, all you have to do is “Read On” o’ Gentle Visitor and enjoy all the guilty pleasures of revenge cinema melodrama, South Americano style.
