In his latest mission, Machete is recruited by the U.S. President (Charlie Sheen/Carlos Estevez; ‘Anger Management,’ ‘Two and a Half Men’) to stop a crazed global terrorist (Mel Gibson; ‘Braveheart,’ ‘Edge of Darkness’) from starting a nuclear war. With a bounty on his head, Machete breaks all the rules as he faces death at every turn from an all-star cast of deadly assassins.
