Machete (2010)

Director: Robert Rodriguez
Cast: Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Robert deNiro,

Coming from man behind Sin City--Robert Rodriguez--Machete is disappointing. I had such high expectations from Rodriguez.

MacheteMachete has a solid plot and director wanted to capture the tensed situation around Texas-Mexico border in a playfully/exciting manner. Much like how West Side Story makes light of serious gang/mafia situation of 1950-60, in a musical manner.

The film goes a bit over the top and it seems like a regular dose of Bollywood flick. No wonders it has been received well in US as they are not used to such flashy cinema like us here (India)!

Danny Trejo fits well in his role. Jessica Alba is hot as ever but looks completely lost. DeNiro has been wasted. There is a bit of comedy.

Not too bad far a one time watch.
