Aro Recommended Machete


USA 2010, 105 minutes
Dir. Robert Rodriguez
Rating: [R18]
Genres: Action/Adventure

Topics: Gung-ho, Trash, Indigenous & Minority Cultures.


Aroview: Hyper-violent 'Mexploitation' actioner from director Robert Rodriguez that fleshes out his popular mock-trailer from he and Tarantino's "Grindhouse" double-bill to a full length feature.

Like the director's PLANET TERROR, this pays homage to fleapit B-movie mayhem, this time with bad-ass Danny Trejo as an ex-Federale who launches a righteous rampage of revenge against his corrupt former boss and other bordertown rednecks. Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba check in as the pistol-packing Latino babes. This comically macho bloodbath is at times as sloppy as the movies it lifts from (especially in the unruly final reel), but if taken on its own low-brow terms it's an enjoyably juvenile experience.
