"I think they want to get badass and violent. They all wanted to come out and play."
—Machete director and exploitation-flick master Robert Rodriguez when we asked him how he got Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez and even Lindsay Lohan to grab a gun and sign on for his latest gorefest. Sure as hell beats playing the fickle girlfriend in the latest A-lister-packed rom-com don't you think?
And even though Rob makes the ladies just as sexy as they are deadly—a bit of gratuitous nudity on Alba's part, a sexy bikini for Michelle and no clothes whatsoever plus a wet 'n' wild threesome for La Lohan—it really is the chicks who kick the most ass in this movie, which is more than most movies these days can boast.
And for that, at least, we say three cheers for Machete!
