Angry Movie Lurker Review 12: Machete.(3 STARS)


Saw a fictional trailer for this movie about two years ago belonging to Grindhouse attached to the movie Planet Terror, now we have an actual movie starring the excellent Danny Trejo(what a face!) playing the title role as an ex federale turned vigilante/mercenary against corrupt politician(Robert De Niro), finds himself on the run and teamed up with mexican immigrants led by Michelle Rodriguez.
The movie is so bad its good with some of the most over the top opening and continuing violence,laugh out loud humour(some of it is intentional) bad acting especially from De Niro and an over the top confusing story that goes all over the place but it has still got enough going for it especially from Trejo and supporting cast(Steven Seagal, Jeff Fahey, Don Johnson, Cheech Marin and others) but Lindsay Lohans nudity scene with the phone is certainly worth seeing.There are limbs all over the place and even a 3ft long machete but the one scene which should helps is"Machete don't text"

  1. Great consise review and I agree with every word! This is so bad and tounge in cheek that it is brilliant. I'm a huge fan of Rodriquez, just watch Sin City to see this genius at his very best.
