Video alternatives

Although Robert Rodriguez is better known for making violent action films, he also wrote and directed the Spy Kids franchise. Alexa Vega, who appears in this movie, starred in that series (Spy Kids, Spy Kids 2 - Island of Lost Dreams and Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over). And Danny Trejo, who plays the title role as the hired assassin, can be seen as Uncle Machete in Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World. Jessica Alba stars in both Machete Kills and Spy Kids 4 too.
