Last night I finished watching Machete This was an action film with the great Danny Trejo as the star. There was a sub-plot about Mexican immigration to the US, but all the action was handled in a very cartoon-ish way. I was amazed to see that De Niro was in it. Steve Segal is the bad guy. The final scene had a fight between a Segal with a sword and Trejo with a machete. It was all meant to be an ironic take on 1970s cheap action films.

It would have been better if they had taken it more seriously. Death is no postmodern concept.
