"It is a big-time Hollywood movie with Robert De Niro, Steven Seagal, and Cheech Marin of Cheech and Chong fame. It cost millions to produce. It takes aim at Americans. The movie is Machete. Take a look at the [very offensive] trailer, with a recent addition aimed at Arizona.
Embedded in the trailer is a scene where someone yells, 'We didn't cross the border, the border crossed us.' This is a reference to the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo that ended the Mexican War of 1846. [Some] Mexicans claim they were here first and the treaty moved the border south, leaving them in the U.S.
If the trailer is any indication, the movie supports this claim and makes Americans who want the border enforced to be the 'bad guys.' "
The star of this flick, Danny Trejo, has real-life experience being a punk. How socially responsible is that, by the way, to glorify villians when you've done prison time for being a predator?
Machete will be released in the fall. One of Big Hollywood's writers' commentary about the movie.
Update: Whaaaaa? Turns out this creepy movie is on the dole.
