Lots of action but not for kids.

Even though the film is made by Robert Rodriguez, the one who made the Spy Kids series and The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl, this movie contains strong sexual content, language and lots of violence.
Nudity starts in the beginning, in where Machete kills a group of men and enters a room where there is a naked woman laying in a bed. You see her buttocks and breasts and also takes a phone out of her private part. About 45 minutes later, Machete is in a pool in which he kisses a mother and daughter, both naked, at the same time. They record it in a hidden camara. Lots of strong language is used frequently. And the violence, lots of violence like cutting people's necks/hands/body off, shooting Mexican immigrants including a pregnant woman, and lots of blood and gore. This movie is not for young kids to watch so be careful. This film should have gotten a NC-17 rating because of its extreme violent and sexual content.

Wow...

This movie is so over the top, its good and totally [email protected], but way over the top. The language is really profane, and if it weren't for that, I would say you could let younger teens watch (if you skipped Padre's death and the sex/nudity scenes). Overall really violent, really sexual and a bit disturbing.

R Rated

What do you think? Its rated R for a reason, as in only for 17+. If you bought this for your kid, and then you whine about it, that just means your stupid.

OKish

This is a good movie, but not really appropriate for kids maybe 13 and under. The opening scene has a full nude woman that pulls her phone out of her vagina, and a lot of people dying with gore and gallons of blood. 2 nude woman, one being Lindsay Lohan, in a pool ready to make a semi porno with Machete as an unexpected star of the video. Everything else is fine, unless you're strict on swearing/cussing.

Ok movie but not for kids!

It was a ok movie with a good cast. This also is about the misery the mexicans had to go threw. But there is lots for language like f..k and S..t and b...h. Plus LOTS of nudity and inaporaite stuff. So think about what you think!

An epic win for the mexicans

I watched this movie with my 72 year old grandma( she can hardly understand a word of English) and we both loved it. It just goes to show that anybody can enjoy an action movie with a simple plot. There are subtle hints of government conspiracies, but the general storyline is straightforward. It is a definite victory for the little guys (illegal immigrants) way to go!

Very entertaining.

If you love a light hearted gorefest movie, this is for you. This movie is just plain fun.

15+ for brutal violence, sexual content and nudity, and language.

Adults only

Machete is gory,violent,sick and quite frankly dull and uninteresting. The story and characters are flat and it doesnt show any of the zip or life of Rodriguezs other films,just his over the top nature. On top of that the political message hits you over the head like a club and dont make the movie any better and arn't included in a way that makes the movie interesting. Mostly this film is nasty,extremely violent dull and preachy. Plus there is alot of nudity and swearing(on top of the extreme violence) so no kids allowed

Entertaining, gory fun

Machete has lots of action,humor and gore. Lots of gore. While a good movie, Machete happens to be the most violent movie i've ever seen, and i've seen some very violent movies. Also expect plenty of strong language and some nudity and implied sex.

aweome movie, but not for kids whatsoever (like under fifteen at least..depends on maturity:)

I honestly think this movie is totally epic and awesome!! Despite the incredible violience and sextual scenes (there are a few naked parts ill warn you) the movie has some conedy in it and I love that...great actors, many known including lindsey lohan and jessica alba (both naked), just a good movie:)

So much to say...

Well, for starters within the first 5 minutes of the movie about 30 people get their limbs ripped off and a stark naked chick pulls a cell phone out her vagina, but other than that its fine. If you're sensitive about these things then don't go, otherwise go for it. It's a fun movie.
