Patrolling the U.S. border with his gun-toting lover, Sartana, after the massacre in Machete (2010), the stone-faced, former Mexican Federale, Machete, receives a call from the president himself of the United States. Thirsting for retribution, Machete embarks on a deadly mission to bring to Texas the megalomaniac Mexican revolutionary, Marcos, who has a nuclear missile pointing at Washington, D.C. Now, Machete and the undercover agent, Miss San Antonio, have to stop a global war, as the shape-shifting assassin, La Camaleón, is hot on their trail. Can Machete's hungry blades avert the impending Armageddon?Written by
When Voz puts on the metal mask, it is clearly just a part that will cover the face. (He's putting it on towards his face.) But in the next second it appears to be more like a helmet that completely covers the whole head which would have been impossible to be put on the way he did before. 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 »

Does exactly what it says on the tin
A lot of fun. Plot basically described in the title...
While I have not been left with any long-lasting memories from this film, I was never bored while watching it. It has action, it's funny, the pace is good and has a decent amount of eye candy without stepping too far into soft core territory.
If the film had to be put into a category; then entertaining nonsense would be a fair fit. It isn't trying to be deep or meaningful, it just wants to keep your eyeballs busy: it does just that.
The film's tongue is stuck so far into it's cheek it is almost beyond recrimination. Any criticism laid at it's door seem almost pointless and could be easily diverted by the intentionally spoofy nature of the production.
One to watch with a few mates, some beers, and snacks.
