It’s such seventies-style cheesy goodness and action, but it’s so incredibly awesome.
The Robert Rodriguez led Machete stars Danny Trejo who is aptly named Machete. The man is an ex-Federate that is no stranger to having a huge blade in his hands and wield it whenever the need arises. Double-crossed by a state senator, Machete hides out as a day laborer and plots his revenge.
There truly isn’t much else that can be said here to capture the true essence that comes from the trailer. Do yourself a favor and just look below to check it out because it’s amazing.
Be warned though that it is red-band meaning it is NSFW.
Official Synopsis: Machete is a Mexican ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer, who is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator. The feature version of the trailer finds Machete (Trejo) a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (De Niro) a corrupt Senator.
Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Marin) his “holy” brother, and April (Lohan) a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.
Look for all the carnage in theatres on September 3.
