Machete | Ratings & Reviews

"Rodriguez - king of the stretch-a-budget, DIY mentality - is once again paying homage to all the B-grade schlock that inspired him, and having a hell of a lot of fun while he's at it."

Flicks, Andrew HedleyFlicks

"A mess that's uglier than its hero and nowhere near as likable."


"Maybe with the right audience, the right drink, and the right friends Machete would be more exciting?"

Bloody DisgustingBloody Disgusting

"Rodriguez's freest movie yet, and possibly his best."

Boston GlobeBoston Globe

"Inconsistent but amusing."

USA TodayUSA Today

"See Machete for Trejo, who... makes grade-Z stoic invincibility cool again."

Entertainment WeeklyEntertainment Weekly

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

Chicago TribuneChicago Tribune

"The pile-up of cool kills, hot bodies, and other unprocessed bits of juvenilia doesn’t add up to a good time."

A.V. ClubA.V. Club

"Trejo brings both playfulness and gravitas to the archly juvenile proceedings..."

Time OutTime Out

"Wildly uneven as it doggedly strives (sometimes with obvious strain) to sustain a free-wheeling, anything-goes air of exuberant junkiness."


"He’s a Mexican, not a Mexican’t…"

Total FilmTotal Film

"For all its political button pushing, Machete is too preposterous to qualify as satire. The only viewers it is likely to upset are the same kind of people who once claimed that the purple Tinky Winky in "Teletubbies" promoted a gay agenda"

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"The ensemble cast -- ranging from an Oscar winner (De Niro) and faded action star (Seagal) to a B-movie vet (Fahey) and tabloid fodder (Lindsay Lohan, not exactly playing against type as a drugged-out, hell-raising sexpot) -- pretty much offers something for everybody."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"This is not the down-and-dirty homage to ’70s sex and violence promised by its pre-emptive trailer — or only sporadically so. The cast work hard — Trejo oozes bad-ass charisma — and the film has some outrageously enjoyable set-pieces, but overall, the convoluted plot and Rodriguez’ agenda spoil the fun."
