GET THE GRINGO Movie Review





Action-Junkies get ready. This is one for the action enthusiast. It is Mel Gibson in his truest form. It is gritty, cheesy, funny and most of all full of action. The south-of-the-border Mexican backdrop adds to the grittiness and grunginess of the film. So much so, that the location eventually takes away from the flick. Debuting director Adrian Grunberg subjects the viewer to overkill, not so much in the blood and gore as would be expected, but more so in the location of the prison scenes, in “El Pueblito.” The scenery inside the prison environment is unlike anything you’ve probably seen in recent movies. It is very much reminiscent of market scenes found throughout many of the economically depressed countries around the world. I found the prison scenes to be very hectic, unconvincing, and over the top. Unfortunately the majority of the movie seems to take place within the prison walls and as a viewer, I had to keep reminding myself that the characters were actually in prison and not in some lawless town in Central or South America.

GET THE GRINGO will be available on DIRECTV on May 1 for the premium price of $9.99 in HD and be followed by the film’s wide release on Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and digital download later this year.
