Juano Hernandez is wasted in this particular movie called Machete
4 February 2012 | by tavmSee all my reviews

When I looked up Juano Hernandez on netflix.com, this was one of his movies that was available for streaming. So it was that I'm now reviewing this for Black History Month. He plays Bernardo, a servant for Don Luis Montoya (Albert Dekker) who's just married a woman named Jean (Mari Blanchard). She, big-bosomed blonde, decides to flirt with his adopted son, Carlos (Carlos Rivas), one of his workers. There's also another worker named Miguel (Lee Van Cleef) who has sinister designs...Really, the plot I just mentioned (though I didn't give some minor details) was soooo predictable to me that I just had to laugh at some of the lines and scenes. And Hernandez, who returned to his native Puerto Rico for this, doesn't really have much to do or say other than take orders and offer some advice and wisdom. So no, I can't really recommend this particular movie called Machete.
