Machete Reviews

Flix Capacitor

Machete is enjoyable to a point, but the novelty soon wears off and there isn't enough inspiration to sustain the concept for a full-length feature film.

We Got This Covered

Though it starts off well, Machete becomes boring and slow towards the end as Trejo's shtick starts to feel a bit stale. Still, you'll definitely find some entertainment here.

First and foremost, this is a badass action film, with not only ever-badass Trejo doing ever-badass things, but everyone in the cast gets their badass moment.

Machete is the coolest revenge-driven, gore-splattered, star-studded Mexploitation flick ever!

Basically what we have here is a very silly exploitation film similar to what Rodriguez did with his half of "Grindhouse."

The end result is a disastrous waste of time that is as tedious as it is misguided...

... 105 minutes of ludicrous fun, but you can see the best parts in the trailer.

At the end there's the humorous promise of sequels, but if Machete is a neat, bloody full-stop on the mainstream Mexploitation genre Rodriguez has done so much to resurrect, it's a fine one.

It may be thin but it's fun and for some that will be enough.

It's taken 15 years and umpteen billion supporting tough guy roles, but Robert Rodriguez has finally managed to make a major studio film starring Danny Trejo.

It's a big, messy, gloppy red bucket of fun, but it falls short of the impact of the Grindhouse punch by this much.

Future Movies UK

Yes it's a lot of fun and great to see such an illustrious cast get in on the act of making lowbrow cinema with a smile on their face, shame the cult element remains and only fans of the grindhouse genre will be fully engaged from start to finish.

Robert Rodriguez... brings his A game to the Z-grade, revelling in the cheesiness and over-the-top violence.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

The lack of subtlety and discipline is what can make Machete a disreputable pleasure and less than a full success.

What Culture

Social commentary, you ask? Quite how can a film centrally preoccupied with Danny Trejo stabbing and shooting people and having sex with lots of women have any sort of pretension to political currency?

Starts out strong but things get a little wonky toward the finale. Sadly, the film is far too married to the faux trailer footage.

Parallax View

[Robert] Rodriguez's politics are right on the surface and about as complex as the film's revenge plot, a kind-of populist response to the anti-immigration rhetoric...

Turning all known manifestations of the classic western on their heads when not simply decapitating them in droves, Machete detonates the battle around immigration like no Tea Party rally ever could, in this get even bilingual guerrilla warfare satire.

While it's riotously entertaining, there's nothing much to it.

Un entretenimiento crudo, básico, con personajes de una sola pieza, algunos diálogos increíbles y generosas dosis de sangre y desmembramientos. Un homenaje de Robert Rodríguez al cine clase B que tanto le gusta.
