Lists: Action, Film Quest 2014 - The Challenge

Brief Synopsis: "Former Mexican Federale Machete plays by his own rules. After a harrowing encounter with drug lord Torrez, the shadowy Booth offers Machete the opportunity to assassinate the unscrupulous Senator McLaughlin. When Machete discovers he's been set up, he turns to fierce taco queen Luz, armed holy man Padre, and socialite April to go after Booth, but before they can get to him, Machete's gang will have to face blade-wielding ICE agent Sartana, who never met a man she couldn't flay."
