Storyline

Lucas Cano, (Machete) an ex-bodyguard for the Mexican President, tired of his life style, retires to a remote small town in Mexico, in hope of finding peace. But things do not work out for him the way he wants them to. First, he must confront several drug dealers who smuggle illegal immigrants into the United States, forcing them to smuggle drugs. Then, Machete finds out that his old Vietnam friend, who now works for the CIA in Arizona, has been assigned to arrest Machete, and take him back to the US for some old charges. Machete's health is deteriorating rapidly. He is constantly bleeding internally, but he won't stop drinking and smoking. Panchito is a little boy Machete met in a street fight, and the little boy, claiming not to have any family, decides to hang out with Machete and tries to help him change his life style. Machete does not know that a higher power is watching out for him. Panchito is an angel sent by God to save his body and soul. Esperanza (Pelancho) meets Machete ... Written by Anonymous

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!
