Machete

 (2010)

Machete Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

After a violent shakedown from a notorious drug lord nearly kills him, Machete, a renegade Mexican Federale and tough-as-nails vigilante for justice, roams the streets of Texas, working as a day laborer. When Machete is hired by a crooked US Senator to execute a covert hit, Machete is double-crossed and forced to run from the cops and an endless stream of assassins. But what they don't know is that Machete is looking for them so he can settle the score.

For more about Machete and the Machete Blu-ray release, see Machete Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Danny Trejo, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Steven Seagal, Michelle Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey
Directors: Robert Rodríguez, Ethan Maniquis

Machete Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

For its opening sequence, Machete sticks with the artificially "distressed" film techniques that were used in the Grindhouse movies— jitters, scratches, some intentional fuzziness and the like—but perhaps realizing that this faux-retro quality isn't necessary to sell the b-movie vibe after the first five minutes, Robert Rodriquez quickly ditches the digitally roughed up aesthetic for a more modern high contrast, high definition look. And it looks fantastic on Blu-ray. The film's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is crisp, clean, and ultra-colorful. Clarity is simply exceptional. Danny Trejo has a face that was built for 1080p resolution. Every pock, wrinkle, and whisker on his iconically pitted visage is minutely detailed, and this goes for every texture on display—leather jackets, grimy garden equipment, the patina of well-worn firearms, etc. Most of the film is bathed in a pleasingly sun-drenched color cast, complemented by bold primaries—blood red, especially—and warm skin tones. Black levels are solid with the exception of a few dimly lit interior scenes—where they rise to a deep gray to preserve shadow detail—and tight contrast gives the image a nearly palpable, jump-out-of-the-screen presence at times. Finally, there are no significant compression issues, no traces of heavy-handed DNR, and no overt edge enhancement. I've said it before and I'll say it again here: 20th Century Fox's recent contemporary releases have been spot on. Machete is no exception.


Machete Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The film's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround mix isn't as bombastic as the sound design for some of the bigger 2010 summer blockbusters, but it's still a powerful, action-packed track. While the rear channels aren't used as often as they perhaps could be for ambience and atmospherics, the surround speakers definitely get a workout during the action sequences. Cars roar between channels, loud bullets tear through the soundfield—in one memorable audio moment, you can hear shots puncture some virtual windowpane in the space behind your head—and punches land with a satisfying crunch. The brutal violence is accompanied by a crunchy rock score by Chingon—the band that Robert Rodriguez initially formed in 2003 to do the soundtrack for Once Upon a Time in Mexico—and the music has plenty of dynamic punch. Dialogue throughout is stable, clean, and easy to understand. For a more complete grindhouse-at-home experience, you can also select a Dolby Digital 5.1 "Audience Reaction Track," which effectively puts you in the middle of a virtual theater crowded with patrons alternately laughing, cat-calling, groaning, and cheering. These kinds of tracks are usually gimmicky and pointless, but this one is actually kind of fun.
