July 24, 2019
A very good direction, an inspired cast and a self-conscious and exaggerated microcosm that will delight all those who need a good dose of cynicism. [Full Review in Spanish]

A-list actors cutting loose is the prime draw of this hot mess of a movie.

How this film got financed and produced is a mystery, but perhaps Netflix and Amazon are producing content to match their algorithms and don't have the time to filter out for quality.
May 1, 2019
An oft-hilarious, though not entirely seamless outing that survives mostly on the talented ensemble at its core
March 25, 2019
Oyelowo is well cast in his role as a man who gets tired of being kicked around, and the stuff he has to resort to in order to survive are not only funny, but also believable.

Entertaining enough, with a sufficient number of internal chuckles to be able to overlook any missteps, Gringo's main downfall is an overcooked script and an A-list cast that puts too much pressure on the film as a whole.

This is only his second feature (Nash Edgerton's debut, 2008's The Square, is one of the great underrated Australian films of the modern era) and here's hoping there are many more to come.

Though Gringo's desperation to be loved can grate, it's also hard to argue that some audiences will love its ribald humor and hyper-active energy.

It's entertaining enough, but never really offer much in the realms of originality.
October 30, 2018
This is a movie that is practically daring you to walk out.
October 12, 2018
The film has enough energy and nerve to carry you through the underwhelming end.
September 5, 2018
Perhaps the most disappointing part is Oyelowo's clumsy presence.

"Gringo" calls itself a dark comedy. And it is so out of touch, it probably believes it is. If this movie was a person, it would be a dudebro and call itself woke.
August 25, 2018
Beyond the impressive list of performers, there is very little below the surface ... the film is marred by a less than stellar script and sub-par direction.
August 14, 2018
Gringo is a movie that so desperately wants to be cool, but hasn't the first idea as to what cool even means.
July 2, 2018
An entertaining action comedy that doesn't disappoint. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 28, 2018
In Gringo different genres, such as comedy, action and thriller come together. Better yet... at times it seems like three different movies. [Full review in Spanish]
June 26, 2018
An exciting adventure that has the best of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino action scenes in its DNA. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 21, 2018
Corporate drug dealing goes wrong in this engaging, dizzily plotted south-of-the-border ensemble crimedy.
June 13, 2018
Overblown, unfunny, messy and meandering.
