MACHETE is an action comedy about an ex-Federale who is hired to assassinate an ultra-right-wing senator.

Violence

There are frequent scenes of strong bloody violence and gore, often presented with a darkly comic tone. Strong moments include decapitations, severing of limbs, a stiletto embedded in a man's eye, a priest being crucified with spikes driven through his wrist, and a large knife stabbed through a man's open mouth.

Infrequent scenes of sexualised nudity also occur.

There is occasional use of strong language ('f**k', 'c**ksucker').
