  • The whole thing is monumentally gruesome and just as monumentally cynical, a riot of grisly cliches designed to titillate and amuse. show more

  • Danny Trejo plays the long-haired, craggy-faced titular Machete with a combination of swift ferocity and baleful kindliness. And the ladies love it. show more

    Very unrealistic in almost every aspect. Was more of a comediy because of it. See it if you want some laughs.
