Poor production values, and went stupid in the end. Better elsewhere.
Great premise, let down by series of stupidity and lame low points.
Great movie. Some great laughs and lots of action. A lot of gore, but it kept with the storyline.
Machete wielding Mexican seeks revenge against those who set him up as a fall guy. Over the top but enjoyable action movie that is notable for its rough looking but charismatic lead. 3.5 stars
This is a very good film, good old fashion entertainment no messing around, Cool.
I have seen Robert Rodriguez's work before, and I felt with Machete, that he tried too hard. He tried to make it as ridiculous and gory as possible, and it just didn't work. Over the top. Did enjoy seeing Steven Seagal back on screen though.
WOTT but borderline watchable... can't wait for the sequels... duh!
Hmmm over the top violence, nudity, and a 'comic book' - feel. Funny at times, good fight scenes, gory at times,
It made fun at the 'red neck Yankee' protecting the borders.. and the Mexicans were winning!
Steven Seagal playing an overweight bad guy! :(
Not my favorite choice, but yeah I it was ok .
ok film a bit far fetched.............
If you enjoy Quentin Tarantino type films, you will enjoy this.
Strange movie and how the heck it got a comedy rating a I don't know! The "hero" and I use the term loosely, was creepy and getting it on with way too much younger leading ladies. Very overacted and a trifle pathetic. Lots of gore.
worst movie i have ever seen, Steven Seagal should not be the bad guy. he is better at being the good guy and it just ruins his reputation of accepting as being a bad guy, just put a random person as the bad guy when they always do it :)
all in all i didnt like it and it was just boring and its just like oh 2 babes that im going to kidnap lets have sex with them first and drug em and then oh another girl coming onto me, ill have sex with her and its just not worth watching. acting was good but can do better. Dont watch it unless u want to be bored for 1hr and 30 mins. :)
Machete was awesome and so blood thirsty . It reminded us of Kill Bill movies with just as many twists in it . A must see
watched 5 minutes, ridiculous storyline, even worse acting, very disappointed
Funny at times, stupid at times, entertaining at times.
Really, really good - was hoping it owuld be a good movie, but had my doubts. If you like action with abit of blood being sprayed around; you'll love this.
Can be likened to a Tarrentino movie, without the rubbish.
As a fan of grindhouse type movies, this was even better than I had hoped. Very enjoyable escapism for an afternoon. Good to see Lindsay Lohan being typecast as well!
If you enjoy extreme bloodshed, gore and violence, then this one is for you. Nevertheless, this picture has a couple of noteworthy firsts - 1) Steven Segal losing big time in a fight 2) Getting Jessica Alba to kiss (ptui!) Danny Trejo. Those alone are worth 3 stars.
Do not watch. Waste of 90 minutes.
Machete is not the best offering from Robert Rodriguez but, as usual with his films, it's still a lot of fun with many very famous faces playing roles that you usually couldn't imagine them agreeing to.
Quite possibly the worst movie I have ever watched. Bad acting, no story and excessively violent. If you enjoy watching people being beheaded over and over again, this movie is definitely for you.
Needs to be watched in the spirt in wich it was made Grindhouse. This started out as a fake preview for the cinema release of Death Proof and Planet of Terror double feature. Made with a great cast in good humor, only with Rodriguez genius can we see all the scenes from his preview of a movie never made fit in with the finished vision. Now bring on Eli Roths Thanks Giving.
great cast, funny action scenes. should of done a high budget movie alot better
After being set-up and betrayed by the man who hired him to assassinate a Texas Senator, an ex-Federale launches a brutal rampage of revenge against his former boss.
If you liked 'Desperado' and 'Once Upon a Time in Mexico' then chances are you are already a Rodriguez fan and you will like this. There's more of everything. Maybe a bit too much more, but it's offset by some very real comments about society and, of course, Michelle Rodriguez. Extremely violent and extremely silly, but very likeable nevertheless. There are lots of 70's film references.
