Machete - Great Movie!
30 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is awesome! It gives a different view of what really goes down! You need to check it out! Plus, i have worked this director and actor Pablo Esparza. He is an awesome guy! Go check it out! You don't know if it's bad or good until you really do see it! Machete has different local actors and well known actors from the Mexican Movie Business! We need to support our independent film makers. it does not matter if they are Mexican or not, we need to support our young actors too! Chuy Cuellar who appears in this film has a great amount of experience and he is a local Dallas business owner as well! When this movie was produce, it was produce with quality time and great people! Go check it out, you will like it! See you!
