Machete (2010)

I am really tired of this cold dragging me down. While I feel a lot better today, I am still nowhere close to being totally healthy. While stuck on my couch Thursday, I got to enjoy some great exploitation fun, with 2010s Machete.

Plot/ After being betrayed by the organization who hired him, an ex-Federale launches a brutal rampage of revenge against his former boss.

Being extremely sick and limited to laying on my couch can definitely lead to some insane thoughts, however, I actually felt much better for a few minutes after watching this. Yes, it is absurb, the were some pacing issues and there is almost no character development, but the mixture of nudity, blood, and crude humor more than make up for the flaws. The acting is solid (especially Danny Trejo) and while the story is rather basic, it is mindless exploitation fun. This is not for everyone, but if you like revenge, blood and boobs, this is for you!
