Mel Gibson is back doing what he knows, playing a flawed character with redeeming qualities who is also a resourceful tough guy

The richness of the prison backdrop is a source of amazement ...described as 'the world's sh*ttiest mall' with food stalls, drugs and sex on demand, guns in plentiful supply and an intimidation-driven system

Fan The Fire

A less than subtle attempt to get him [Gibson] back to the renegade action star roles with which he made his name.

Robbie Collin
Daily Telegraph

[Gibson] and the boy make the kind of cross-generational double act that deservedly went out of fashion with Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, although it's superficially toughened up with bad language and cigarettes.

A pungent representation of Mexican torment (beyond the blaring ranchera music) with a violent twist, bringing out a particular groan to Gibson's puckish attitude the screen hasn't seen in years.

It'll be way too grim for some, but fans of tough action cinema will find plenty to enjoy.

Mark Adams
Daily Mirror [UK]

It is a film with no great pretensions... just one happy to hit the ground running and focus on violent action.

Peter Bradshaw
Guardian

[A] lively, non-PC caper-thriller, with touches of Elmore Leonard and Quentin Tarantino...

The plot thickens to the density of Semtex, then explodes.

The List

Co-written by Gibson, Grunberg and Stacy Perskie, the result is an enjoyable enough ride - one that even the most rampant Gibson-hater would find difficult to dislike.

Reeling Reviews

This is a Mel Gibson project and it shows the filmmaker's imprint, maybe a bit too much for the sake of a novice director.

I cannot imagine what compelled Mel Gibson to star in something like this, but I am glad that he did.

Movie Talk

Mel looks a lot more grizzled, of course, than when he first started playing his hair-trigger hotheads but he still oozes charisma. And when it comes to the film's scorching shootouts, he's still got the live-wire energy too.

Shadows on the Wall

All of the swaggering attitude is just too much for a film that has absolutely no point to it.

Little White Lies

A superior genre effort, even if its chances of setting the box office on fire are less than zero.

Stella Papamichael
Digital Spy

Gibson does well to keep up with all the madcap action and he brings a steeliness that echoes his work in Payback and Edge of Darkness.

Matthew Turner
ViewLondon

Watchable, smartly directed thriller with an efficient, pared-down script and a strong performance from Gibson, though it's also a little too slick for its own good and the lack of character detail is occasionally frustrating.

James Mottram
Total Film

Melding Mel, Mexico and mariachi, Grunberg's debut is a watchable action-comedy, if a little throwaway. Good Friday-night fun.

Henry Fitzherbert
Daily Express

The jail setting is eye-opening, Gibson is on good form and a tight narrative grips until events become too farcical towards the end.

...classic Gibson action - part ultra violence, part Looney Tunes.
