I am a first time buyer of zavvi steelbook On time and in mint condition will be ordered of zavvi again thanks again
Straight off the bat, if you didn't like the first Machete movie then this isn't the film for you. It's more of the same from Robert Rodríguez, and it shows that the core cast are comfortable working together, in addition to some good turns from some new faces (including a screen debut from Carlos Estevez, lol). It takes itself even less seriously than the original movie (if that's possible), and ramps up the violence and gore though is held together by the flimsiest of plots. But hey, that's not what you're watching for right? All in all, get your mates round, disengage your brains and just enjoy the ride.

Great purchase and a great film for the price too!
Basically a 'B'-movie with a bigger budget, Robert Rodriguez indulges himself again and goes OTT with Machete vs Gibson vs machine-gun bra clad babes. Hilariously nonsense and quite gory! Nice steelbook from Zavvi.
This is the 2nd ultra-violent adventure of the title character Machete! Danny Trejo does the role justice but apparently something got lost when you compare this outing with the first movie! Don't get me wrong, the babes were gorgeous & deadly, though (spolier) killing Jessica Alba's character inside the opening minutes is unforgiveable!!! Carlos Estevez's (Charlie Sheen) performance of the President of the USA is a noteworthy & profanity filled , of course. Everything you expect from Robert Rodriguez is in this film, far from bad but not entirely great, a pleasant time passer for those who enjoy the genre. Region B locked.
With only 4000 copies made and the art work picked by the actor of machete himself this is a great collectors item. The film it's self is a lot of fun with laughs here and action found over there. This is a must for any robert Rodriguez's fans (sin city, from dusk to dawn etc) thanks zavvi for the safe arrival of this sweet treasure.
Just like the first one this is full of action and violence , not to be. Taken to seriously .. Nice looking artwork and an enjoyable movie, nice one Zavvi.
Well, the movie is a Robert Rodriguez movie, so one should know what type of movie to expect. This one, however, is a little (maybe more than a little) on the silly side -- certainly less serious and realistic than "Machete". The Steelbook box is good, with beautiful colours; not embossed and not one of the best, but good, nevertheless.
If you liked the first Machete film, you will love this one. It's even more ridiculous and over the top than the first. They've gotten Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson to sign on too. It's a crazy ride of violence and fun. Have some mates around and get some pizza and drinks and put this on. You will not be disappointed.
