"Machete is based on the "fake" trailer in Robert Rodriguez's 2007 Grindhouse, featuring Danny Trejo and Jeff Fahey reprising their original roles. The feature version of the trailer finds Machete, a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez. Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz to assassinate McLaughlin, a corrupt Senator. Double crossed and on the run, Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz, a saucy taco slinger, Padre, his "holy" brother, and April, a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana, a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.
Machete was released September 3rd, 2010 and stars Danny Trejo, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Steven Seagal, Michelle Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Cheech Marin, Don Johnson. The film is directed by Ethan Maniquis, Robert Rodriguez.
