Twenty-three years after comedian Bert Kreischer’s great story began, he returns to Russia to unravel the legend of The Machine to continue. Kreischer can now be seen alongside Mark Hamill in the brand new trailer for the action comedy described as a mix between The Hangover (2009) in Midnight Run (1988).
With a family crisis and the arrival of his estranged father, things go from bad to worse for Kreischer when a Russian mobster arrives to drag him kicking and screaming back to the motherland to atone for his crimes. This time, he goes back to Russia with his father, where he goes through a vicious crime war and tries to bond with his father along the way. The trailer shows that the return of the legend of The Machine is not easy for Kreischer. Confronted with violent criminals and drugs, he is forced to kill a man or three along the way. The Machine is based on real events from Kreischer’s life.
While the trailer outlines the relationship between Kreischer and his father, the focus is on the comedy. While you might think that Kreischer is an invincible action hero, the last two scenes of the trailer prove that he has a long way to go. First, he tries to jump from his back to his feet, hurting his back. We can also see in the trailer that Kreischer accidentally shoots two gangsters and a counter clerk, after which he immediately panics.
