Get The Gringo

Car chases, bloody bodies and a hard-core prison... all in a day's work. Mel Gibson's vacation plans take a turn for the worse in the raw, explosive and action-packed GET THE GRINGO, arriving on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download July 17 courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Icon Productions.

Gibson stars as Driver, an American criminal who violently crashes his car through the border wall as he tries to outrun the U.S. Border Patrol and coming to a screeching halt in Mexico. A Having survived the crash only to land inside a hard-core Mexican prison, Driver enters the strange and dangerous world of "El Pueblito." A In the middle of this ruthless penal colony, Driver must do whatever it takes to survive, even if he must turn to the unlikely guidance from a 10-year-old kid who shows him the ropes.

   What can I say about Get The Gringo?  Well, I for one have always been a fan of Mel Gibson's work, I find the roles he plays to be very convincing, I think he is a fantastic actor.  And once again, he did not disappoint me.  I liked this movie, despite the fact that it's not really something I would normally watch, and I found it to be like another movie he's done in the past.  There were some parts that I found boring, simply because there wasn't enough going on, I really don't like the 'lull' in movies, you know the in between part where one super awesome thing just happened but the next isn't going to happen for 15 minutes.
   Personally, this wasn't "the best movie ever" for me, but I think there is enough action for the average person, very well played by the actors and well, it's Mel Gibson, he has proven time and time again he can play a wide array of roles, and do so very nicely.  I know my dad would love this movie, it's definitely his kind of action packed, bloody, adventure kind of movie.

  If you like action movies I think you might enjoy watching this movie.  Who knows you may even watch it twice.

I give this movie 1 out of 2 thumbs up!
