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.

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.

The exposition-heavy dialogue and barrage of one-liners all fall terribly flat and what should be a fun romp feels more like a cinematic chore

Machete is almost completely devoid of any entertainment value. It's trying to be a spoof of low-budget action movies, except it keeps forgetting to poke fun and becomes that which it mocked.

It's disappointing that a film with this many decapitations and naked Lindsay Lohans can be so boring.

Rodriguez plans "Machete" sequels. Here's hoping the next is sharper and cuts closer to the bone.

At 105 minutes, Machete is at least half an hour too long for its own good.

Machete runs out of steam pretty early.

Alas, not even Lindsay Lohan -- doing a cartoonish riff on her tabloid persona (is this even possible?) -- can bring this rotten egg to a boil.

The whole thing is monumentally gruesome and just as monumentally cynical, a riot of grisly clichés designed to titillate and amuse.

The filmmaker, having spent his career making various iterations of the same nonsense, has lost his verve.

Yet another missed opportunity from Rodriguez who relies on hammy performances from acting legends instead of adequately attempting to recreate the genre he claims to love.

Because there's no real character drama or consistent critique grounding the spoof, when Machete isn't laugh-out-loud funny, it's deadly boring.

A dreadful effort, a loud and self-satisfied movie that is brazenly short-sighted.

Robert Rodriguez loves exploitation cinema but his homages to the disreputable genre are defined by italicized self-consciousness that leaves his humor without any room to breathe.

Don't get me wrong, there are moments, but Rodriguez found a way to make extreme violence boring.

Silly bloodbath without a soul. De Niro plays Senator Focker and Lohan is ridiculous. She needs an acting coach or a strong director.

While it's well made and Danny Trejo is an amazing presence on screen, the sustained over-the-top violence becomes tiresome.

There is excess galore and plenty of gore as well, there's tongue in cheek, a completely original use of entrails but somewhere towards the end it just became a bit too silly for me.
