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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

It's entertaining enough, but never really offer much in the realms of originality.

This is a movie that is practically daring you to walk out.

The film has enough energy and nerve to carry you through the underwhelming end.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Perhaps the most disappointing part is Oyelowo's clumsy presence.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

"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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 24, 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
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.

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]
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
June 20, 2018
Corporate drug dealing goes wrong in this engaging, dizzily plotted south-of-the-border ensemble crimedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 12, 2018
Overblown, unfunny, messy and meandering.
June 6, 2018
Gringo has seemingly good intentions, and shows good taste in its inspirations, but keeps missing its own beat, scene after scene. It's a happy-go-lucky, shaggy, odd, silly, and ultimately infuriating mess.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
June 4, 2018
Despite corralling Charlize Theron, Joel Edgerton, Thandie Newton and David Oyelowo into its incredible cast, Gringo is, at best, an inept attempt at a dark comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Life may be full of coincidences, but screenplays cannot be.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 30, 2018
[Gringo] arrives too late in a world where political correctness is on a different trajectory in today's world. [Full Review in Spanish]
May 29, 2018
Not even Gringo's impressive ensemble cast can breathe much life into these overblown but underwritten characters.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
May 25, 2018
Although the film has many favorable elements, the result is not promising. [Full review in Spanish]
