Jessica alba dating danny trejo
S.-Mexico border, is hired by shady businessman Michael Benz (Jeff Fahey) to assassinate Senator John Mc Laughlin (Robert De Niro), a rabid anti-immigration politician and xenophobe with a predilection for personally shooting Mexicans attempting to cross the border… ) See, Benz's business thrives on illegal aliens and if Mc Laughlin were to win re-election, he may be out of business.To give away any more of the admittedly ridiculous plot would be cruel.Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Michelle Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Cheech Marin) his “holy” brother, and April (Lindsay Lohan) a socialite with a penchant for guns.All while being tracked by Sartana (Jessica Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.
In the film she plays a US Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent on the trail of Danny Trejo's Machete, the rogue Federale agent whois on the run after being double-crossed when asked to assassinate a corrupt Senator (Robert De Niro).
Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba display equal parts feminine charm and masculine ruggedness as a freedom fighter and immigration agent, respectively.
And somehow, Robert Rodriguez was able to get Lindsay Lohan to play a drugged-out, ditzy loose woman. Originally shot as a fake trailer to Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's 2007 film, "Grindhouse," "Machete" was initially written in 1993 with Trejo in mind after casting him in "Desperado." It makes sense.
It's the best homage to exploitation films you will find, but be sure you can handle the gore and nudity.
n the first ten minutes of Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis's "Machete," I counted the following: at least a dozen murders (three of which by decapitation), the use of a gun with a man's amputated hand still attached, gratuitous nudity, an exploding house, and a cell phone being pulled out of a female body part that normally doesn't get service.
