Machete (2010) is a grindhouse inspired action thriller starring Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan, Steven Segal, Don Johnson and Robert De Niro.
There is a lot of violence and nudity to be enjoyed in this movie and Trejo creates a pretty decent hero but ultimately I just felt this movie was a very hollow experience.
Machete has a first rate cast but does very little with them. Alba is reduced to a cliched eye candy role, Lohan hardly appears and De Niro is completely wasted in a role totally underserving of the great actors talent.
Co-director Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) is once again taking it easy and although there is fun to be had this movie left me feeling like the director and cast could have done so much better.
