Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The pace is swift, the tone playful, the screenplay peppered with one-liners.
Rotten: The movie is ham-handed, repetitive, and rhythm-less -- a mess that's uglier than its hero and nowhere near as likable.
Fresh: I have nothing against films that take political stances, but an exploitation flick? It's off-putting. I'd prefer to sit back and bask in the carnage and R-rated silliness.
Fresh: It's basically a one-joke exercise heading toward the inevitable big battle between vigilantes and Mexicans. There's lots of gore, flesh and fun along the way, but it gets repetitious.
Did not dissapoint
As a HUGE fan of grindhouse, I couldnt wait for the day that Machete came out. So I counted down the days until september 3rd. and sure enough i was there on opening day to see it. When the film started it didnt take long for it to blow my expections away. The violence started almost instantly, the first sight of nudity was within the first 5 minutes, and it looked like a 70's grindhouse film. If you liked Grindhouse (Planet Terror and Death Proof) than you will love this movie. A bit of a warning though, do not let kids under 15 see this and DO NOT watch this movie with a date, unless she's into violent nudity filled movies. I highly recommend seeing this with a group of your best guy friends, like I did. this is the ultimate guy's movie.
All I have to say is MACHETE DONT TEXT
THE Man Film
Perfect blend of gore, action, women, explosions, awesomeness, and laughs for any guy. You have to watch this with friends if you love laughing at ridiculously awesome things!
