Movie Summary

Machete is a 2010 action film directed by Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis. The film was originally conceived as a trailer that appeared between Rodriguez' Planet Terror and Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof in the Grindhouse release. Machete stars Danny Trejo as Machete, a Mexican renegade immigrant. During a rescue of a kidnapped girl, Rogelio Torrez (Steven Segal) kills Machete's wife and daughter and leaves Machete for dead. Michael Booth (Jeff Fahey) is a local businessman who reveals to Machete that Senator McLaughlin (Robert De Niro) has been kicking immigrants out of the country. However, as Machete is staking out McLaughlin, Booth's people shoot Machete and McLaughlin in order to paint McLaughlin as a sympathetic figure. Machete escapes to Mexico and is treated for his wounds, while a U.S. agent named Sartana Rivera (Jessica Alba) is sent to capture him. Machete enlists the help of ShŽ (Michelle Rodriguez) and Padre (Cheech Marin) to seek revenge on Booth. Machete takes Booth's daughter April (Lindsay Lohan) captive. Sartana Rivera learns of McLaughlin's crimes and makes them public. Machete must then fight off a deadly collective made up of Booth, McLaughlin, and Torrez.moreless
