YMMV / Machete Kills

  • Anti-Climax Boss: El Camaleon is shot by a bunch of racist border patrolmen while Machete runs off in another direction, completely forgetting about him.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: After Kylo Ren's lightsaber with a laser crossguard in The Force Awakens, a lightsaber machete looks downright practical.
  • Ham and Cheese: Mel Gibson is having a ball playing The Heavy for the first time.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Walton Goggins as El Camaleón. The other three actors in the role, too.
    • Madame Desdemona delivers two awesome speeches (the "house rules" one and the "ball-biter" one), and makes a persuasive case for casting Harley Quinn as a Latina.
  • Nausea Fuel: Desdemona talking about how she chewed off her abusive father's balls. It gets gross when she mentions that she went to school the next day with pieces of him stuck in her braces.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Corey Burton is credited as "Trailer Voice Guy", after the announcer voice went uncredited in the first Machete, but Burton was credited for Grindhouse.
  • Sequelitis: Unlike the original, the film flopped at the box office and got panned by critics.
  • What The Hell, Casting Agency?:
    • Casting Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson in roles almost seems like a dare by Rodriguez for people to complain about the casting. And is likely the point, considering the casting in grindhouse movies this series parodies.
    • Half of the people who play El Camaleon.
    • Vanessa Hudgens as a Mexican prostitute
