Machete Kills Reviews

Lyles' Movie Files

An absolutely absurd action extravaganza. It's doubly crazy, chaotic and all kinds of ridiculous fun.

Machete don't do new jokes.

Maclean's Magazine

The meta parody of Machete Kills is a self-congratulating exercise in overkill. Its onslaught of gags try so hard to be outrageous they become banal. It looks like it was way more fun to make than to watch.

Daily Record [UK]

If nothing else, Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse homage manages the herculean feat of making us feel sorry for Mel Gibson.

'Machete Kills' is 'Spy Kids' Meets 'Moonraker'... with Blood. Machete Cortez is back... and so over-the-top, he literally floats away.

An interminable bore.

Fan The Fire

Guns and explosions aren't that exciting when the plot hasn't sucked you in, and lacking the imaginative, spunky spirit of the original, Machete Kills just feels so much more laboured.

It's a questionable gig that may become an endearing one by 'Machete X: Machete Goes Hawaii.'

November 14, 2013

Loud, fun, ultra-violent sequel to Machete, with unsmiling crater-faced Danny Trejo as the Mexican hero slashing and slaughtering his way to justice. Director Robert Rodriguez does what all good, trashy sequels do, which is to deliver more of the same.

Full Review Source: 3AW | Original Score: 3/5

November 8, 2013

Multi-tasker Robert Rodriguez sequelises his Machete, originally a joke trailer in Grindhouse, and manages one of his most messy and (even for this sort of nonsense) ludicrous efforts.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Uncompromised in its goofy cartoon vision of an insane world that doesn't realize it's reached a state of post-apocalypse, even though the bombs have yet to fall.

Machete don't text, but he does seem to have jumped a shark. The first film was great fun, but Machete Kills seems to have misunderstood its own joke.

Machete was arguably Rodriguez's best movie, but MACHETE KILLS -- while still passable -- comes nowhere close.

Over the top in every area and making good actors look bad at every turn.

"Machete" was fun. "Machete Kills" gives me a headache.

The market has well and truly rejected the Machete franchise, as if it were salted toothpaste or phlegm-flavoured soda.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

For those who enjoyed the surprise TV hit 'Sharknado' this summer and/or the original 'Machete,' here's 'Machete Kills,' a parody of old-time drive-in and generally sleazy movies that's a sequel to 'Machete' from a few years back.

An obvious improvement over its virtually unwatchable predecessor...

Shadows on the Wall

The film is often very funny, even though the pacing is extremely slack, wasting far too much time with pointless exposition and misogynistic smirking.
