I love Machete - great character and I love Robert Rodriguez films but Machete Kills wasn't what I'd hoped. Not as good as 'Machete'. It was entertaining and there were good parts but don't spend $11 to see this in theaters.

If you like Rodriguez, you will love this. Over the top, graphic and stupid, but stupid in a very witty self-referential, post-modern kind of way, with loads of cinematic allusion delivered with a big, cheesy wink. Can't wait for the sequel

Robert Rodriguez has done it again. A smart, witty and campy (can those 3 go together) action flick with our favorite machete-wielding superhero back for an encore performance of fighting the bad guys. This time, Machete - wonderfully played by Danny Trejo, is out for revenge for the cold-blooded murder of his partner (played by Jessica Alba). The story takes some detours through a brothel run by a sinister madam played by Sofia Vergara, through a crime lord's (Estevez) maniacal world domination plot and back to the future via a rocket sent into outer space. Oh, and Lady Gaga joins in on the action.

Each one will be campier than the last. I love it. But, I always love Rodriguez. More cult classic than the first, and I had more faith in that people would understand that, but perhaps not. True fans of the genre, of the director, of Grind House, will love it.
