Movie: Machete

I ended up watching Machete last night, I knew it was going to be a cheesy slasher movie that’s why I recorded it, but I wasn’t expecting this much nudity (bonus).  Its a story about a Mexican Federale who tries to make things right and gets pulled into a political fight.  It turns out the Mexican drug lord ( Steven Seagal ) is funding a Texas Senator ( Robert De Niro ) (the Senator and private border patrol don’t know where the funding is coming from) that hates immigrants and border crossings through shell companies and contributions through the Senator’s campaign manager ( Jeff Fahey ).  Meanwhile, an ICE agent ( Jessica Alba ) is monitoring a Taco truck (operated by Michelle Rodriguez ) in a day laborer pickup zone…great plot seeds. Likes: Opening fight scene with naked girl ending (I actually liked all of the fight scenes, I love the slash / pause w/ bad edit / insert body double / pause w/ bad edit / queue blood! / and action! sequencing), Miss Lohan ‘s chest and girl-girl Machete pool make out video, border crossing hunting with De Niro, in-your-face non-Politically correct plot, uh…everthing not listed below, this was good Dislikes: Murders in Churches, hot chick that was a traitor (I’m stretching it here…) I’ll give it a 9/10, I like the cheesy slasher movie genre, this was done right.  I might even watch it again…
