After being set-up and betrayed by the man who hired him to assassinate a Texas Senator, an ex-Federale launches a brutal rampage of revenge against his former boss.
The two young boys that hang around with Luz are played by Daryl Sabara and Gilbert Trejo. Gilbert is Danny Trejo's son, and throughout the whole film, he never wields a weapon and never says a word.
We're federal agents, not martyrs. This is suicide. She's just another kidnap victim.
Federale Officer: What makes her special? Because she's a witness against Torrez? He probably has her locked up, drugged our of her mind. We don't have to do this!
Machete: If not us, then who?
(Deliberate by filmmaker) During the pool scene, as April enters the water is played by Lindsay Lohan. After Machete enters the pool, the character is clearly not Lohan. This is because the footage is actually from the "Machete" fake trailer that preceded Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror (2007) segment in Grindhouse (2007) - one of several pieces of trailer footage that were re-used in the movie.
Don Johnson's billing in the opening credits is listed as "and introducing Don Johnson"
