Goofs
When the Senator is shot at the beginning of the film, it clearly happened in Austin near the Texas State Capitol. When the policemen are talking about which hospital he'll be going to, they mention Parkland, which is in Dallas, 200 miles away.

In the opening scene where Machete and his partner are attacking the drug-house, several bullets are fired through the windscreen as they approach the building. However, when the car crashes through the building, the windscreen is completely intact and bullet-hole-less.
Share this
When Sartana's home is attacked by the masked goons, Machete fires nearly a dozen shots in quick succession with a six-shot revolver. This is a running gag in Robert Rodriguez films, which present an over-the-top, living-cartoon version of reality.

Q
A Note Regarding Spoilers
A
The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags have been used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.
Q
Is this based on the fake trailer from Grindhouse?
A
Technically yes. Rodriguez had actually conceived this film back before he had written Desperado. The trailer was the most popular of all of the Grindhouse fake trailers and drew a mass following. Rodriguez was so inspired by this that he took the original script he wrote in 1993 and decided to adapt it into a feature film. He has stated in interviews that about 99% of the footage from the fake trailer will be used in the feature film and the story line will not change but be added on to, so new characters (Seagal, Alba, DeNiro, and Lohan) could be involved.
Q
How much sex, violence, and profanity are in this movie?
A
For detailed information about the amounts and types of (a) sex and nudity, (b) violence and gore, (c) profanity, (d) alcohol, drugs, and smoking, and (e) frightening and intense scenes in this movie, consult the IMDb Parents Guide for this movie. The Parents Guide for Machete can be found here.
