About the Movie

After a violent shakedown from a notorious drug lord nearly kills him, Machete, a renegade Mexican Federale and tough-as-nails vigilante for justice, roams the streets of Texas, working as a day laborer. When Machete is hired by a crooked US Senator to execute a covert hit, Machete is double-crossed and forced to run from the cops and an endless stream of assassins. But what they don't know is that Machete is looking for them so he can settle the score.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The pace is swift, the tone playful, the screenplay peppered with one-liners. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Sep 3, 2010

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. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Nov 29, 2010

Rotten: Rodriguez plans "Machete" sequels. Here's hoping the next is sharper and cuts closer to the bone. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Sep 3, 2010

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. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Sep 3, 2010

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.

Can't wait
