Machete

Machete
He was given an offer he couldn't refuse...
Who hid my conditioner again?

After some trouble in Mexico, an ex-law-enforcement official moves across the border to Arizona, and works as a labourer. He is hired to knock off a politician campaigning against Mexican immigrants, but is doublecrossed and finds himself on the run. Desperate to clear his name and see justice done, he recruits three talented ladies and other illegal aliens, and sets about righting what he sees as wrong. Expect plenty of violence and gore, with some nudity.
