Consensus: While possessed with the same schlocky lunacy as its far superior predecessor, Machete Kills loses the first installment's spark in a less deftly assembled sequel.

Machete Kills is a film in which style sardonically routs substance, a cloying gag built around the iconic quality of Trejo's matchlessly craggy face, which resembles a plate of sundried corned beef.

A self-aware exploitation picture that winks as it picks your pocket.

Endless assault weapons, exploding helicopters, crashing cars and floors splattered with blood, limbs and entrails, all adding up to nothing.

The stunt casting is so poorly realized that actors pop in and out of the film at random, the story apparently stitched together according to actors' schedules.

"Machete Kills" continues the trend of dumb grind house action that the first film was so good at, but this had got to be the biggest pile of shit… More

Trained to kill. Left for dead. Back for more. Decent Movie! Machete Kills is the sequel to 2010's Machete. Even more star studded than Machete's… More
