Humor and violence - Grindhouse style

Machete is Robert Rodriguez's film based on his mock trailer made for the double grindhouse release of Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof and his own Planet Terror. B-Grade superstar Danny Trejo stars as the title character. Those that have seen the mock trailer, or the grindhouse films, know the style of yester-year that Machete is representing. Cheap, nasty, and funny is the order of the day for this kind of film. Rodriguez clearly knows his genre and audience. He goes all out with this over-the-top action flick. The story is, of course, ridiculous. Machete is betrayed by some "above the law" dudes and has to get revenge by slicing and dicing whoever gets in his way. The film does what it says on the cover. Don't go in expecting a glimmer of subtlety or characterization. Go in expecting action, titties, action, blood, titties, oh and action. This would be all well and good except for some slight problems. The unashamedly preachy messages against the Mexican/United States border does get a bit tiring, as does the repetitive nature of the violence (after some interesting action set- pieces they all become similar, except towards the end). Also, this kind of film needs to be much snappier and shorter. It's around twenty minutes too long so that the humor and overall style tends to drag on a bit. Machete holds it's tongue permanently in cheek and Danny Trejo milks every scene as much as he possibly can. Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez and Lindsay Lohan all make for good eye candy and there are some very funny moments. All in all, this exercise in grindhouse excess should keep the fans of this style very happy, even if it can slightly bore others.

Why does this exists

Literally the worst movie (if not by quality than the most irritating) I've ever seen. Cheap thrills, sexuality and violence are exaggerated without story or motif backup. I'm aware that this is the grindhouse movie, but it's totally pointless.

Silly But Highly Entertaining

From the "fake" trailer that was in the "Grindhouse" double feature movie, "Machete" is the fully realized version, starring the incomparable Danny Trejo as an ex-Federale who winds up as a day laborer in the U.S. Picked by a man to assassinate a Donald Trump type politician (played by Robert De Niro), Trejo takes the job and before he can fire a shot, he is double crossed and set up to take the fall for De Niro's attempted assassination. Wounded and on the run from the police and De Niro's henchmen, Trejo is helped by an underground network of Mexican immigrants to get his revenge on those who wronged him.

My most memorable, movie moment of "Machete" is the scene when Trejo goes to the house of De Niro's main henchman. Holding garden tools, Trejo tells the bodyguards that he is the new gardener. The bodyguards let Trejo pass; and one of the bodyguards says something like "You ever notice how we let a Mexican inside our homes just because he's carrying garden tools?" It's the funniest line in the movie.

"Machete" is a hyper-violent, often silly, fast paced, action/comedy that revels in its absurdity and glorifies the 1970s cheesy action/revenge flicks. Obviously not meant to be taken seriously, this movie is best viewed with friends as you munch on unhealthy snacks and drink unhealthy beverages. As a bonus to viewers, "Machete" has a surprisingly complicated plot for a movie that focuses on outrageous, bloody violence.
