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

A few laughs here and there but largely falls flat.

I left the theater vaguely annoyed - as if the filmmakers had thrown away some promising ideas and elements in weaving together a thoroughly generic chase movie and pretending it's something special by employing ineffective stylistic choices.

Director Nash Edgerton and screenwriters Anthony Tambakis and Matthew Stone do a fine job of juggling the multiple story lines, moving things along at an entertaining clip.

It can't decide whether it wants to be magnificently toxic or merely mediocre.

Dust off those spec scripts, all you as-yet-unsuccessful scribes - Hollywood's apparently paying anyone these days.

Movies like this need to be airtight, but "Gringo" is a flimsy piece of pulp fiction.

If only the movie was a better showcase.

How can every single scene be both unnecessary and dull?

"Gringo" has no spark, no fizz. Its scenes sag like overstretched taffy. Flavorless taffy.

Though each of these great actors are somewhere on the spectrum of being funny, no one feels completely in their element.

Inconsistencies in character behavior undermine the storytelling throughout. When things are so glaring that they make you stop and say, "Hey, hold on a second, why did - " you know there are problems.

It is possible to sit through it all without feeling completely miserable, and to remember a time when these comic-grotesque shenanigans might have seemed fresh.

Mostly, it's just kind of dumb.
