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.

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.
October 31, 2018
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.

Perhaps the most disappointing part is Oyelowo's clumsy presence.

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.
June 13, 2018
Overblown, unfunny, messy and meandering.

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.
June 5, 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.

Life may be full of coincidences, but screenplays cannot be.

[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.
May 25, 2018
Although the film has many favorable elements, the result is not promising. [Full review in Spanish]

There's a charm to Gringo's moral question though, brought to life by Oyelowo's Harold. Are good people rewarding? Do bad people get what they deserve? Or is the universe total chaos?

It's hard for me to go into detail about why I did not enjoy "Gringo" as much as I wanted, or even as I feel I should have. It's one of those things you can't really put a finger on...you just know you didn't like it.

A movie created by someone who has ever actually been to Mexico and thought to pay attention to more than kidnapping scares and cartel nightmares.
March 20, 2018
The general tone is soulless. [Full Review in Spanish]
