  • As much as Machete Kills is a reunion and continued revival, it also represents a sort of gentrification of the exploitation genre. It's probably time to move on and let a new generation of kids take a crack at making bad films. show more

  • Machete Kills? “Machete Bores” is more like it. show more

  • The cinematic axiom of diminishing returns appears to be catching up with Robert Rodriguez’s Machete franchise in only the second installment, as the series’ engagingly lowbrow concept gets overwhelmed by episodic plotting and uninspired, rote performances. show more

    I didn't know I should laugh watching this movie, or I should be consider it as WOW adventure, Police action or what. Movie industry is going down. Years ago, the movies had better taste into it.

    Not as self contained as the original. It\'s more like the first half of a story that will be resolved in \"Machete Kills Again... in Space.\" But it was great fun and I enjoyed every single minute of it, Can\'t wait for the next installment.
