Editorial Reviews

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 (Danny Trejo) 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.

    Jan 3, 2011:
    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.

    Machete is a parody of a parody of a parody and it is extremely fun. Machete is a throwback to the old "grind-house exploitation" movies that tried to have a plot (which were always awful) and sometimes even a "massage" (which were terribly portrayed as well, although one understood what the "message" might be, whether it be as simplistic as "don't brake the law", or more sensitive subjects such as "rape", etc. In this case Latinos, which in some instances ARE being mistreated in this country, "illegal" or not, is part of the "plot" and "message"). In the 1970's these types of movies were seen, or at least attended to, for pure fun (and if one had a significant other, to play fun "games" in the darkness of the theater). And this is what Machete (along with Planet Terror and Death Proof) was intended as: a cheap, fun, exploitation flick. If these types of movies are "terrible" that's because they're SUPPOSED to be "terrible".

    It's wildly exaggerated. It's supremely ridiculous. It spoofs its message. Huzzah! It's the action-packed motion picture, MACHETE, that you aren't supposed to take too seriously. It fulfills the promise raised in one of the faux trailers from the 2007 theater release of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's double-billed GRINDHOUSE. A slew of big name actors graces this exercise in pseudo-exploitation cinema, but towering above them all is Danny Trejo as the brutish, laconic Machete Cortez, that vengeful ex-Federale. Trejo's face is so weathered it resembles a page out of a Thomas Guide. And yet he is somehow a chick magnet, if you buy into the film. No less than two hotties - Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba - throw themselves at him.

    When one sets foot on the vengeance trail, it's best to have a huge friggin' machete to wave around menacingly. Machete Cortez is an old school sort of hombre stalking a modern world. His impractical tool of choice is the machete, even though he frequently has access to less primitive weaponry. But he's very good with his namesake blade. He cuts a friggin' swath.

    For shucks and giggles Robert Rodriguez, early on, inserts grainy footage to emulate those trashy old 1970s flicks. This alerts us that there'll be plenty of tongue-in-cheek shenanigans going down. The plot, such as it is, concerns the hot button topic of illegal immigration. Robert DeNiro, who's stooping to everyone's level now, plays conniving senator John McLaughlin, an aw-shucks, unctuous and drawly gent who is up for re-election. He's standing fast with his platform of proudly crapping on illegal immigrants. Scorning the even playing field, he hatches a fiendish scheme to garner him even more votes.

    Almost NO special features from a director who packs his discs with them?! Greedy companies (Like 20th Cent FOX) want to bleed us dry and have super-fans purchase 2 copies: (1) bare bones disc now and (1) "special directors cut" later. My advice: HOLD OFF, rent it now, and buy the (almost certain) re-release in a few months! It's happened COUNTLESS times with major releases and, quite frankly, is insulting. Show them we are wise to their games and won't be taken advantage of anymore!

    This is an amazing movie. If you took parts of Itchy & Scratchy, GTA San Andreas, Blaxploitation movies of the 70s, and bad porn, and then had it stirred up, dipped in batter, and deep fried by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's unholy spawn, you get this stupidly perfect movie.

    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.
