Mel Gibson alone makes this movie worthwhile with his smartass charisma. The storyline is also interesting enough to keep you in tune throughout it's rather short run time with fast but logical pace. 'Get the Gringo' is certainly an underrated piece within Mel Gibson's long list of filmography/

Dark, clever, and unique.

Long drawn out and not worth watching

Get the Gringo is a nice return to form for actor Mel Gibson. He plays an unknown criminal with a ton of cash, arrested at the Mexican border. Two corrupt cops shove him into a weird Mexican prison, filled with shops, guns, and a whole ecosystem inside. The voiceover kind of drags the film down, but its a fun action packed mystery thriller action film with lots of good scenes. Its definitely an enjoyable film for sure.

An excellently-crafted movie that somehow flew under the radar.

Say what you will about Mel Gibson the man, Mel Gibson the actor can be very watchable, especially in these rough-around-the-edges, anti-hero roles. This film requires a bit of suspension of disbelief (a prison city? Really?) but once you accept the premise, the action is fairly compelling thanks to Driver's (Gibson) one-step-ahead scheming. It won't win Oscars, but I enjoyed it for the most part. Just...turn off your brain a little. Especially near the end.

Mel Gibson protagonista un pr˛fugo de la justicia que va a dar a la cÓrcel en MŔxico luego haber robado mÓs de dos millones a unos mafiosos. En la caˇtica cÓrcel mexicana deberß aprender a sobrevivir, para lo que necesitarÓ de toda su astucia, imaginaciˇn y habilidades con una pistola en la mano. Un film de acci˛n, sencillo y entretenido

It is a so-so movie. I mean, I liked it, but not really inclined to watch it a 2nd time or something.

tutored by a tough talking, cigarette smoking kid with a pretty but damaged in some mysterious way, probably because she's trying to raise her kid in a jail that looks like 'the worst mall in the world'. Yawn.

This is a really good movie. Tons of action,blood,and style. The scene that best stands out is the shootout. The use of slow motion makes it enjoyable.The hitmen are trying to kill everyone and the Gringo. Full of blood, guns and the music makes it a fun movie to watch. They are trying to put humor into this action movie and the scene makes me laugh me laugh my ass off. My favorite kill was the grenade throwback and when gringo shot the cowboy in the eye. Great movie.

A decent effort but rather passable. Gibson gives his familiar roguish charm and throws himself around with reckless abandon, but it's all too light and inconsequential. I hope that the upcoming Blood Father will have more of the grit, edge and substance that's lacking from this one.

I really liked this movie, the pace was good and when Gibson is on, he's still capable of carrying a film.

"Get the Gringo" is a taut, rock - solid action extravaganza. This is the Mel Gibson grizzled action hero vehicle we've been waiting for, and boy, is it a gritty, wild ride...

Obviously, This is overrated. Predictable.

Its too bad the Jews (basically hollywood) banned Mel, b/c he still makes good movies. This isn't the godfather, but so much more entertaining than anything seth rogan, jonah hill or adam sandler put out. See it!

When he's not flipping out drunkenly ranting at the Jews, or for not having his blowjobs, Mel Gibson can still deliver top notch entertainment.

Pretty interesting, definitely watchable. Gibson fans will enjoy.

Big Mel doesn't fuck around.
