Machete 2010 8 out of 10

Machete  2010   8 out of 10

An Ex-Federal (Danny Trejo)  gets screwed over and left for dead while doing his job in Mexico.  Now he is in the USA and ends up in more troubl.   He randomly gets hired to be a hitman which leads to him getting set up and betrayed again.   The plot itself is goofy, but that is made up for with the extremely bloody and entertaining action scenes.  A machete makes a good weapon for hacking up ones enemies.   This was originally one of the fake trailers made for the Grindhouse films (a return to the old B movie exploitation flicks) that Robert Rodriquez and Quentin Tarintino came out with.   Machete is the big screen version of that fake trailer.   Machete is a fun ride that falls short of being great as a result of some of the silly aspects of the plot, but it is still an enjoyable film.
