Performers, Cast and Crew:
Box Office - 08/31/2010
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The action constitutes a virtual cornucopia of impalings, severed appendages and decapitations, along with the requisite spurting of blood."
New York Times - 09/02/2010
"[A] pulpy, lighthearted gorefest....Mr. Trejo offers an amusing inside-out caricature of the Hollywood stereotype of a Latin American drug cartel's sinister enforcer..."
Rolling Stone - 09/02/2010
"It's a digital gorefest that expands on the faux trailer Robert Rodriguez included in GRINDHOUSE..."
Hollywood Reporter - 09/01/2010
"MACHETE delivers the '70s-style B-movie goods....Trejo has an imposing physicality and formidable presence..."
Premiere - 09/02/2010
"Never too grim or too jokey, MACHETE manages to maintain an enjoyable nutso temperament throughout."
USA Today - 09/04/2010
3 stars out of 4 -- "Rodriguez combines sharp satire and timely political commentary with a decidedly B-movie ethos.
Entertainment Weekly - 09/10/2010
"[A] gory, pulpy wink of an action thriller....The violence is splatterifically witty, but the minor marvel of MACHETE is how mean everyone in the movie is." -- Grade: B
Movieline - 09/01/2010
"[A] cheeky, freewheeling return to exploitation homage....This is a movie that hits hard from first to last..."
Total Film - 10/22/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "Born to play the part, Trejo excels, delivering his lines like he wields his weapon -- with a cutting and deadly efficiency."
Uncut - 12/01/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a predictably trashy B-movie, very much in keeping with the GRINDHOUSE sensibility....Rodriguez throws in all the sleazy cult-flick treats he can muster."
Empire - 11/24/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "Trejo, naturally, is awesome....The action sequences, when they arrive, are as audacious and brilliantly staged as we've come to expect from Rodriguez."
