Maybe... 'neo-grindhouse' has become a 'genre' because Tarantino's Midas touch turned grindhouse into ... art? Grindhouse sort of sounds like 'art house.' On the other hand-nah.

The stunt casting is so poorly realized that actors pop in and out of the film at random, the story apparently stitched together according to actors' schedules.

Bigger, more ambitious, and more raucous, Machete Kills stands as a film that proves more can, sometimes, be less.

"Machete will return in: Machete Kills!" boomed the gritty voiceover dude at the end of Robert Rodriguez's 2010 Mexploitation parody. Three years later, we're reminded that it was a threat, not a promise.

Everything looks artificial and achieved in post-production. Every shortcut is met to save money on budget and time.

It's unfair to say Machete Kills is boring and stupid, but it flirts with both of those adjectives far too often to be considered a good movie.

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

For all its testosterone and bravado, Machete Kills won't leave you with much to remember about the film that the title doesn't already tell you.

Despite a raft of A-list cameos, director Robert Rodriguez fails to serve up enough laughs to justify a second helping of Danny Trejo's Mexican hardman.

Of course Machete Kills is supposed to be "bad," but it's also supposed to be entertainingly dumb and loony - which is where it falls short.

The result is like a Funny Or Die sketch that goes on for way too long.

I think that this "Machete" may have killed any desire I had to see yet another B-movie homage.

Not funny enough to be a comedy, not weighty enough to be a real B-movie thriller ...

Machete Kills aims for 'so bad, it's good', but ends up just plain bad.

"Machete Kills" is just plain bad in a way that is in no way good.

Machete kills, sure. Unfortunately, he overkills.

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

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.

Where the first film reflected its simple roots by not reaching for too much, here it too often feels like Rodriguez is trying too hard to impress.
