Goofs

  • When Booth is driving to pick up Machete at the day labor site, he is seen driving a Mercedes Benz S-Class (W220 1999-2006). At the day labor site, he is seen in a Mercedes Benz S-Class (W116 1972-1980). When he drives away, the car switches back to the W220 model. In addition, in the inboard scene at 0:16:36 you can see the headrest of the W116 again. Later on (e.g. when Michael Booth gets his daughter from the house), the headrest is one of a W220 model.

Metacritic

70

The ensemble cast -- ranging from an Oscar winner (De Niro) and faded action star (Seagal) to a B-movie vet (Fahey) and tabloid fodder (Lindsay Lohan, not exactly playing against type as a drugged-out, hell-raising sexpot) -- pretty much offers something for everybody.

Machete works because at no time does it ever ask the audience to take any of this too seriously, yet the nudges and winks are never so forceful that it feels like it's begging for your laughter.
