Danny Trejo returns as legendary ex-Federale Machete Cortez in this action-packed thrill ride from innovative director Robert Rodriguez. In his latest mission, Machete is recruited by the U.S. President (Carlos Estevez) to stop a crazed global terrorist (Mel Gibson) from starting a nuclear war. With a bounty on his head, Machete breaks all the rules as he faces death at every turn from a star-studded cast of deadly assassins. Featuring Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Antonio Banderas, Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Demian Bichir, Machete Kills is “Absurdly entertaining. Defies expectations!” (Harry Knowles, Ain’t It Cool News). It’s one of the wildest save-the-world adventures ever captured on film!

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics 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.
Matt Zoller Seitz
A self-aware exploitation picture that winks as it picks your pocket.

"Machete Kills" is barely a movie. It's an inside joke wrapped in a fanboy fantasy, pieced togethe...

Common Sense Says
Over-the-top grindhouse sequel is full of bloody violence.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that, like Machete, Machete Kills attempts to re-create an intense, over-the-top "grindhouse" movie experience with gleefully excessive violence, sexuality, and language (though the energy seems to have flagged somewhat this time around). Violence includes tons of blood and gore, including a microwaved plasma bag that explodes and sprays all over a hospital room, plus multiple beheadings, slicings, guttings, and shootings, as well as fighting. Language is also very strong, with many uses of "f--k," "s--t," and "p---y." There's very little nudity, but viewers do see one sex scene and a woman wearing bottomless chaps, and there's some sexual innuendo. Plus, all the women in the movie are viewed as objects, dressed in sexy, revealing clothing (one even has a machine gun bra).
