"What the hell...I'm gonna enjoy what's left of the summer."

Now this is how you make a proper action-thriller! Get the Gringo (a.k.a. How I Spent My Summer Vacation) is one hell of a film; a stripped-down, gritty actioner reminiscent of the kind of dark, no-nonsense thrillers we saw back in the '70s and '80s. With so many glossy, CGI-laden blockbusters hitting screens these days, i... read more

Mel Gibson is at his best when someone is kicking the shit out of him. Payback, Lethal Weapon and conspiracy theory are damn fine examples of Mel's ability to take a kicking and still come out looking cool. So I was more than glad to see him back at his best in 'Get the Gringo'.
Being typecast is not always a bad thing, for some actors it can be a blessing; I want to see Bruce Willis killing... read more

"Watched on: 8/11/13 Once upon a time Mel Gibson was my favorite actor and any film he was in was a must-see for me. While he's no longer my favorite actor I got to admit I still like him and think he's a great screen presence, but I also know he's a troubled dude with some messed up ideas and issues and really needs to lay off the sauce. Well all that aside Get the Gringo is a fun and enjoyable crime-thriller that puts Mel back into his kicking ass and taking names mode that he does so well."

2012- Best to Worst (56 movies items)

"I wasn't expecting anything great from this movie, but this was far from what I was expecting. When this movie started I had the feeling that Mel Gibson wrote the dialogue. Now after seeing the writers credits, I now know that he was one of the writers. This movie had great dialogue, awesome action scenes and some good humor. I still think Mel Gibson is a douchebag, but this was a great comeback for him and a great return to the action genre."

" The odds are against him. So is everyone else. ▶ Watch the trailer Story/Writing: ★★★ Acting: ★★★☆ Visuals: ★★★ Soundtrack: ★★★ Overall: ★★★☆ Liked: • Decent writing. Nothing great, but good for what it is. • Some decent action. • Mel Gibson. He may be a nutcase, but I still enjoy his work. • The kid. Good acting by Kevin Hernandez. • Grimy setting. • Narration. Always been a sucker for narration for some reason. Disliked: • N/A. Can't re"

"Storyline Apprehended by the Mexican authorities, Driver is sent to a hardcore prison where he enters the strange and dangerous world of 'El Pueblito'. Not an easy place for an outsider, unless it's with the help of someone who knows the ropes - a 10-year-old kid. Directed by Adrian Grunberg Positive Points : Mel Gibson , Good storyline --Vazquez: Look, you're corrupt, we're corrupt. There's one difference. We're honest about it. --Driver: "The ugly American".

"A good cheap B rated Action movie. Sure it has it's problems and the story isn't all that great. The first half is a little weird and slow but the middle ending picks it up. "
