No one is keeping the 'Grindhouse” movie alive better than Robert Rodriguez. And MACHETE is a modern masterpiece of the genre. Cheesy dialogue, lots of blood spurting violence, hot babes wearing nothing or next to nothing, the '70's style porn music… it's all there. Will this win any awards? No. Are there plot holes and leaps of faith as deep and wide as the crevices in Danny Trejo's face? Yup. But it's all such a kick that you really don't care. This is Rodriguez' homage to a genre of movie that no one really cared about anymore until his wonderful “Planet Terror”. Here's hoping he keeps it going and Trejo unsheathes his Machete once again for a sequel. — Alan Yudman
