Why watch this film?

Directed by Robert Rodriguez ("Sin City: A Dame to Kill For") from the parody trailer featured in "Grindhouse" (itself inspired by the titular character from "Spy Kids"), "Machete" is an absolutely ridiculous movie... and that's the whole point. It's a tribute to the hyper-violent exploitation and B-movie cinema that the director grew up on, taken to its most absurd and delirious extreme with gun-toting priests, motorcycles with machine guns, and very creative uses of a human intestine. Its cartoonish brutality is extremely entertaining to watch, especially when it's applied against xenophobia.
