Vengeance has a new name – Machete! From director Robert Rodriguez comes this action-packed, cutting-edge serving of carnage asada starring Danny Trejo, Robert De Niro and Jessica Alba! Double-crossed and left for dead, “Machete” (Trejo) is a tough-as-nails ex-Federale who takes on hit men, vigilantes and a ruthless drug cartel. As bullets fly and blades clash, the body count rises.

Common Sense Says
Extremely violent "grindhouse" actioner isn't for kids.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that although Machete is directed by Spy Kids' Robert Rodriguez, this movie -- which is based on a fake trailer that Rodriguez created for the 2007 film Grindhouse -- is definitely not for kids. Like some of his other adult-oriented movies, it's filled with crazy violence, gratuitous nudity and sexual innuendo, and strong language (including "f--k" and "s--t"), as well as drinking and smoking. Though it's well made and actually has a very strong message about racial tolerance, this kind of extreme filmmaking is absolutely adults-only fare.
