Gringo gets a lot of mileage out of its energy, its ability to use cruelty as a motivational tool rather than just as a way of belittling others, and its copious amounts of creative violence.
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]
July 21, 2019
A-list actors cutting loose is the prime draw of this hot mess of a movie.
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.
February 26, 2019
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.
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.
May 24, 2018
Gringo manages to transform a crude subject into a satisfactory black comedy. [Full Review in Spanish]
April 22, 2018
Gringo has some real snap to the action scenes, and just the right level of craziness.
April 10, 2018
The presence of this film can only be compared to, if anything, finding the expiration date of a newly purchased item to be ten or twenty years old. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 19, 2018
Cacophonous action and Charlize Theron: ideal plan for a Saturday night. [Full review in Spanish]
March 19, 2018
It's hard to begrudge them the fun they're having on the screen.
March 16, 2018
If for nothing else, see Gringo, a wild black comedy set mostly in Mexico, in order to watch Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. be hysterically funny. I mean David Oyelowo.
March 15, 2018
Though all of Gringo's elements don't ultimately come together seamlessly enough for this to be a "great" movie, not all movies have to be great. Some of them just have to be a fun, funny, escapist two hours. This cast delivers.
March 14, 2018
Oyelowo steals this movie right from under everyone else's collective nose. He's a hoot in an act of grand larceny that makes the uneven Gringo worthwhile.
March 13, 2018
The message that good things happen to good people is deftly told to deliver a decent, if unspectacular, film.
