[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.
It's too soon to tell but a technology like this is going to need a surprisingly-good flick to draw viewers to it. Get the Gringo is not a surprising flick in any way, unless you find mediocrity surprising.
Gibson's character gives a ten year old kid (who becomes a major character, without ever becoming a brat) a cigarette, and the kid lights it up and smokes it. Try getting MGM, Universal, Paramount or Disney to release that.
