This isn't so much a review of the film itself, but of the product. I'm writing to inform people of a future Double Dip. In an interview in October 2010, Robert Rodriguez said that there is going to be an "Ultra-violent Director's Cut" of the movie to be released on home video. No release date has been announced for that DVD yet, but I assume that version of the film will have the usual Rodriguez extras such as a commentary, a film school, and a cooking school (all of which are not on the current DVD/Blu releases).
If you like "Machete" enough to buy it, but don't care about different versions, extras, etc., then go ahead and get this version of the film. If LOVE "Machete" and you want to hold out, then save your money and wait for the next version of the DVD/Blu that will come out. Fair warning: looking at the double dips for other Rodriguez films such as "Grindhouse" and "From Dusk Til Dawn", the next release could be possibly several months or years from the date I'm writing this review. If you can't wait, go ahead and pick up this version.
Some of the scenes in this insane grindhouse fest will have you pause, rewind, re-watch, and repeat: they are that freaking over-the-top. There were at least a half dozen literal jaw-dropping, eye-bulging, WOW moments. I wish I could share some of the great moments but they have to be witnessed in stunned amazement as I did, without any preparation.
Now let's get this straight; this movie has almost no genuine redeeming cinematic qualities. The plot is ridiculous, the script inane, there is no semblance of reality, and there is a moronically heavy handed pro-illegal immigrant message. However, there is a reason this movie boasts big names and I'm pretty sure it wasn't for the paycheck or the chance to get an Oscar. It's because this is pure artery-clogging joy. If you feel the need to critique this movie you probably also look for the sanitary qualities of a truck taco. I don't know about you, but some of the best food I've ever eaten came from a truck. I can't sum it up any better than that.
enforcement are on the payroll of a drug lord named Torres(played by Stephen Seagal). This set up results in his wife and daughter being killed by the
forces of evil. He reemerges as an unknown. He starts finding these people who are in league with the drug lord. A businessman played by Jeff Fahey is
the go between for the Mexican drug lords. In the meantime Machete is killing the forces of evil. Robert Deniro plays the role of an unscrupulous man who
is running for reelection. He has the full support of the drug people. Another villain of note is played by Don Johnson. This is an action packed movie that
has nonstop action. @Watch Machete fight the forces of evil.
The story: three years after the murder of his family at the hands of a ruthless drug lord (Steven Seagal, Exit Wounds), ex-Federale Miguel "Machete" Cortez (Danny Trejo, Once Upon a Time in Mexico) becomes ensnared as the wild card in a shady conflict involving the attempted assassination of a Texas Senator (Robert De Niro, GoodFellas), an underground aide network to illegal Mexican immigrants run by a tough beauty (Michelle Rodriguez, Avatar), and a plot to exploit both to dark ends.
The cast is the first feature that catches your eye, and for the most part it's remarkably well-chosen. Not unlike Gary Daniels in Stallone's ...Read more ›

The action in this movie is extreme and bloody. Unfortunately, it's also brief and infrequent. The rest of the movie is plot exposition and corny dialogue. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Douglas Kaiser
