Texan director Robert Rodriquez continues his tribute to grind house & exploitation cinema genres.
He directs a bloody story about vengeance and he does it very well.
He blends political intrigues with the concern of justice in human rights.
It is not just another b movie but focuses into problems of immigration too.
Danny Trejo was the ideal man for the protagonist's role.
His scars can thrill everyone. His machete too.
He is an ex federal cop who loses his family after being trapped by drug lord Torrez (Steven Seagul).
When Michael Booth, the Texas senator's advisor offers him a job he will be a victim of conspiracy.
But he will survive and seek for revenge. A woman who helps Mexican immigrants, a cop and a priest will come along him to clean up the mess.
