A new trailer has just been released for Robert Rodriguez’s B-grade action flick, Machete. The film is based on a fake trailer that appeared in his collaborative project with Quentin Tarantino entitled Grind House. Supporting character actor Danny Trejo leads the cast as the lean, mean, machete throwing machine. Check out the new trailer…
Even though the trailer doesn’t show the entire cast, Trejo will be joined by a group of talented actors including Oscar winner Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Steven Seagal, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Don Johnson and Jeff Fahey just to name a few.
If you judge this as a standard B movie and nothing more, it doesn’t look bad. Anything that involves both Marin and Rodriguez usually tickles my fancy but there are a few flaws. The little bit of fight choreography Alba is shown doing is horrible. She did better work on Fox’s “Dark Angel.” Other than that it was good, especially Seagal in sensei mode again. It’s been a long time!
Don’t forget to check out the first trailer for the film with a special introduction from Trejo himself. It’s the Cinco de Mayo edition!
