Movie Review: Machete
Ginger Liu wrote this review 5 years and 1 month ago
Daniel Trejo is a solid support and cameo performer but he doesn't have what it takes to be the lead. It is this failing that ruins what would have been a fun movie.
Robert Rodriquez’s (Grindhouse-Planet Terror, Sin City, From Dusk Till Dawn) new movie, Machete, is set for release in 2010 and centers around an ex-agent, played by Danny Trejo (Grindhouse) who enacts blade-wielding revenge on the bosses who portrayed him. Machete’s character first appeared in a segment at the beginning of Grindhouse. Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Lindsay Lohan, Steven Seagal, Cheech Morin, Jeff Fahey, and Don Johnson make up the ensemble cast.
