About this Article

Many heads roll in Robert Rodriguez's violent, comedy action sequel "Machete Kills." Considering how brainless this motion picture gets, that might be a clever metaphor. The rest of "Machete Kills"? Not so clever. Or funny. Or exciting. In fact, how any movie crammed with this much gratuitous violence and sex could turn out to be such a snore might make a terrific mystery for a detective.
