[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...

[A] tongue-in-cheek, knife-in-guts action thriller... Full Review
Rating: B- -- The strength of "Machete" is the deep supporting cast, which brings lots of humor and fun to the project. Full Review
Bowling Green Daily News
Rating: 3/5 -- Basically very silly and wastes the time of some talented celebrities (including Lindsay Lohan, as an addled nymphet). But it has its moments.
London Evening Standard
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.
Rating: 2/5 -- All set up and no punchline. Full Review
Little White Lies
Robert Rodriguez brings a new breed of antihero to the big screen in this hyper-violent adaptation of the "fake" trailer originally featured in the 2007 double-feature exploitation throwback GRINDHOUSE. Machete (Danny Trejo) is a former Mexican Federale who plays by his own rules, and doesn't answer to anybody. In the wake of a harrowing encounter with feared drug lord Torrez (Steven Seagal), Machete finds himself in Texas, where the shadowy Booth (Jeff Fahey) offers him the opportunity to make some quick cash by assassinating the unscrupulous Senator McLaughlin (Robert De Niro). When the job goes awry and Machete realizes he's been set up, he turns to fierce taco queen Luz (Michelle Rodriguez), heavily armed holy man Padre (Cheech Marin), and trigger-happy socialite April (Lindsay Lohan) to show Booth that he just messed with the wrong Mexican. But before they can get to Booth, Machete's gang will have to contend with blade-wielding ICE agent Sartana (Jessica Alba), who never met an adversary she couldn't flay.
