During an operation of a Mexican Cartel, Machete Cortez and Sartana Rivera intercept the criminals alone, but another group arrives and a masked man kills Sartana. Machete is arrested, accused of killing his beloved Sartana and Sheriff Doakes hangs Machete. But the President of the USA Rathcock pardons and recruits Machete to kill the revolutionary Marcos Mendez that has threatened the USA with a missile with a bomb. Machete goes to San Antonio to meet the Miss San Antonio Blanca Vasquez that will be the liaison between Machete and President Rathcock. Then Machete goes to the brothel of Madame Desdemona to seek out the prostitute Cereza that is Mendez's mistress. Machete meets Mendez and learns that his heart is connected to the missile and only the arm dealer Luther Voz is capable to disarm the bomb. Now Machete needs to bring Mendez to the USA in less than twenty-four hours and save his new country in a dangerous journey with betrayals. Written by

In the chopper, when Machete is being transported along with Cereza, Zaror's ringtone on his cellphone is the opening notes and chords to Cancion Del Mariachi, a song from Desperado, also a Robert Rodriguez film. See more »
Voz's burned face would have been experiencing too much pain to wear a mask so quickly after experiencing that amount of trauma. See more »
After all the credits have been shown, two short scenes are shown. One is an outtake of one of the last fight scenes, where an unexpected punch is delivered between two women, the other scene is a very short montage of the presidential character posing with guns. See more »
I have not seen the first Machete, but I grabbed this one from a red box expecting some outrageous, exaggerated, over the top action/gore/story and it did not disappoint. Go in expecting this and you will have a great time.
That being said if you are expecting a serious movie, then this is probably not for you.
I wish I would have gone to the theaters so I could have supported it.
Action - solid
Story - well done and
Acting - hard press making it any better
My favorite part about the movie is probably the trailer for Machete kills in space at the beginning and what everything leads to at the end.
I really hope they make that one.
