Great Movie

by Herman on 10/2/2012

This is a really a great movie. Don't be fooled by the title and the lead actor. The Blu Ray quality is outstanding! A must have for your collection. It has everything...action, comedy. and suspense.

Product Overview

From director Robert Rodriguez (Grindhouse, Sin City) comes an action- packed, cutting-edge serving of carnage asada...with killer deleted scenes that deliver more guns, more girls and more Machete action.

Set up, double-crossed and left for dead, Machete is an ass-kicking ex-Federale who lays waste to anything that gets in his path. As he takes on hitmen, vigilantes and a ruthless drug cartel, bullets fly, blades clash and the body count rises. Any way you slice it, vengeance has a new name...Machete.

Editors Note
Note Robert Rodriguez brings a new breed of antihero to the big screen in this hyper-violent adaptation of the "fake" trailer originally featured in the 2007 double-feature exploitation throwback GRINDHOUSE. Machete (Danny Trejo) is a former Mexican Federale who plays by his own rules, and doesn't answer to anybody. In the wake of a harrowing encounter with feared drug lord Torrez (Steven Seagal), Machete finds himself in Texas, where the shadowy Booth (Jeff Fahey) offers him the opportunity to make some quick cash by assassinating the unscrupulous Senator McLaughlin (Robert De Niro). When the job goes awry and Machete realizes he's been set up, he turns to fierce taco queen Luz (Michelle Rodriguez), heavily armed holy man Padre (Cheech Marin), and trigger-happy socialite April (Lindsay Lohan) to show Booth that he just messed with the wrong Mexican. But before they can get to Booth, Machete's gang will have to contend with blade-wielding ICE agent Sartana (Jessica Alba), who never met an adversary she couldn't flay.
Box Office 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The action constitutes a virtual cornucopia of impalings, severed appendages and decapitations, along with the requisite spurting of blood." 08/31/2010
New York Times "[A] pulpy, lighthearted gorefest....Mr. Trejo offers an amusing inside-out caricature of the Hollywood stereotype of a Latin American drug cartel's sinister enforcer..." 09/02/2010
Rolling Stone "It's a digital gorefest that expands on the faux trailer Robert Rodriguez included in GRINDHOUSE..." 09/02/2010
Hollywood Reporter "MACHETE delivers the '70s-style B-movie goods....Trejo has an imposing physicality and formidable presence..." 09/01/2010
Premiere "Never too grim or too jokey, MACHETE manages to maintain an enjoyable nutso temperament throughout." 09/02/2010
USA Today 3 stars out of 4 -- "Rodriguez combines sharp satire and timely political commentary with a decidedly B-movie ethos. 09/04/2010
Entertainment Weekly "[A] gory, pulpy wink of an action thriller....The violence is splatterifically witty, but the minor marvel of MACHETE is how mean everyone in the movie is." -- Grade: B 09/10/2010
Movieline "[A] cheeky, freewheeling return to exploitation homage....This is a movie that hits hard from first to last..." 09/01/2010
Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "Born to play the part, Trejo excels, delivering his lines like he wields his weapon -- with a cutting and deadly efficiency." 10/22/2010
Uncut 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a predictably trashy B-movie, very much in keeping with the GRINDHOUSE sensibility....Rodriguez throws in all the sleazy cult-flick treats he can muster." 12/01/2010
Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "Trejo, naturally, is awesome....The action sequences, when they arrive, are as audacious and brilliantly staged as we've come to expect from Rodriguez." 11/24/2010

Review ... Though the film can't reasonably maintain this 10-gags-a-minute trajectory, it sure does try. Forget modulation, nuance or storytelling, this is a movie that hits hard from first to last, no questions asked or logic followed.

Review ...Rodriguez has assembled a crazy-quilt cast, from multiple-Oscar winner De Niro to Seagal and Fahey: widely acclaimed as two of the very worst actors of the past few decades but who both fill their villain roles like the tasty junk food inside a taco...Designed and destined to win no awards, Machete is expert, cartoon-violent, lighthearted fun. Just the thing to send Junior back to school in a good mood.
