John P. McCarthy Mexican hero delivers laughs, guts and justice
Neil Karassik As is often the case with Robert Rodriguez's work, Machete is big on style and small on substance.
C. Fuchs Proving it's far easier to make a skit (or faux movie trailer in this case) than a full-length offering of the same, Machete has its moments, but it doesn't manage to be a cut above the rest of its ilk.
Tomatometer Machete is messy, violent, shallow, and tasteless -- and that's precisely the point of one of the summer's most cartoonishly enjoyable films.
