Robert Rodriguez's movie Machete was funny, insane, over the top, stupid, and just great. The cast and acting was awesome, the score perfect, and a timely story about a giant mess. I think I liked this best of all of RR's movies--probably better than either of the original Grindhouse movies (which I really like). Trejo, DeNiro, Steven Segal, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Alba, Don Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Steve Fahey, Cheech Marin...all pretty wonderful. Lohan and Cheech were just bent in their parts...wonderful. And, then, there's the mind bending machete work and all the rest of the pretty much nonstop action. This Mexploitation flick is a perfect corker for summer. I like it so much, I saw it twice this weekend.
