Not everyone's cup of tea, but if you're a fan of Rodriguez and his Grindhouse movies, then you should enjoy it. A good, action packed, fun movie.

This movie had funny moments, about five minutes worth in total. I can't believe I wasted $9.00 and two hours of my life on it.

Here is what you need to know: The writers of this movie clearly started with a mission statement that said: "Let's write a pro-illegal immigrant movie disguised as a camp action film incorporating all the worst aspects of recent Tarantino, Marvel, and movie parody films.

Despite trying, all the crazy violence, sexual innuendo, and bare breasts couldn’t make up for the fact that this is just plain a BAD movie. Save your money.

A very violent, but fun little movie.Director Robert Rodriguez knows how to make action movies, even those that sometimes a bit violent. "Machete" is one of those movie. It is very violent, but vewry good. Danny Trejo may not have the good looks, but he gets the job done. He played an agent who lost his wife to violence and now it's pay back time. There are two strong women in the movie, both played by Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez. They both know how to kick butt. Is there any strong women in "The Expendables?" No! These women exist only as women who are being put down by the men in their life. I'm glad to see Steven Seagal and Lindsay Lohen back on the big screen. I really miss them very much. If you going to see "Machete," you better have a strong stomach or else you better see something else.

I can not even put into words how completely terrible this movie is. Just a waist. That's what you get when you take a 30 second humorous trailer (made only to be a joke) and tun it into a feature film.
