Some time ago I’ve got this idea about Machete edit which will give that film more of a grindhouse feel that was lacking in theatrical version. After completing ZSJL Grindhouse edit, I’ve decided to give it a shot.
So, the goal is to have bloodier, funnier, sexier, more ridiculous (and not always making much sense) edit of Robert Rodriguez’ Machete with grindhouse look, some re-scoring, deleted scenes restored as well as some additional footage from other movies, especially those featuring Steven Seagal, repurposed to expand his role as an over the top villain.
- Cut some scenes with senator McLoughlin (TV spots, his second death).
- Cut part of the first and whole second scene with “smart bodyguards”
- some more minor cuts here and there
- re-scored big part of the movie
- added layer of thick grain and grindhouse effects to whole movie (dirt, scratches, dust and other damage).
- added 6 of 8 deleted scenes from the Blu-ray (characters of Sis and McCoy are restored in this cut)
- added newly created flashback sequence
- added some scenes with Steven Seagal from his other movies (see other sources)
- added mid-credits scene
- some additional nudity
- used some shots from fake trailer (2007)
- added blood effects in few shots
- added SFX to rebuild some of the rescored scenes and in several other places.
