For a movie that promises outrageous action and over-the-top gratuitous violence, “Machete’s” two freshly released clips are a tad … tame. The last clip featured Jessica Alba and Danny Trejo talking over lunch, and this second clip features Jessica Alba busting Michelle Rodriguez’s balls over her papers while ordering food from a taco van. Can you practically feel the electric energy of the simmering conflict between the two women? No? Yeah, me, neither.
After a violent shakedown from a notorious drug lord nearly kills him, Machete, a renegade Mexican Federale and tough-as-nails vigilante for justice, roams the streets of Texas, working as a day laborer. When Machete is hired by a crooked US Senator to execute a covert hit, Machete is double-crossed and forced to run from the cops and an endless stream of assassins. But what they don’t know is that Machete is looking for them so he can settle the score.
