Synopsis 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.[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...It's a digital gorefest that expands on the faux trailer Robert Rodriguez included in GRINDHOUSE...MACHETE delivers the '70s-style B-movie goods....Trejo has an imposing physicality and formidable presence...Never too grim or too jokey, MACHETE manages to maintain an enjoyable nutso temperament throughout.3 stars out of 4 -- Rodriguez combines sharp satire and timely political commentary with a decidedly B-movie ethos.[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[A] cheeky, freewheeling return to exploitation homage....This is a movie that hits hard from first to last...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.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.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.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.
