age 18+


Cheap, hyper-sexual, brain dead, immorally corrupt movie that any parent should be embarrassed to watch. No adult, teen, child, should ever watch this garbage.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
age 17+

Fun, but not as fun as the original!

Machete Kills, the sequel to the action-comedy masterpiece Machete! It still has the gore, the action, the quirkiness, and the humor of the first, but not as much! It's a very good sequel, but just not as great as the original!
