Get The Gringo – 7/10.

Mel Gibson is caught by the police just over the border and is sent to a Mexican prison where he forms an unlikely relationship with a 10 year old boy.
Get the Gringo has a real Robert Rodriguez feel about it but not quite as mental as say Machete or Planet Terror but still violent enough to draw comparisons.
Despicable racist Mel Gibson reminds us why he was once one of Hollywoods top leading men with a strong, charismatic performance. As action movies go this is dumb but fun and as a piece of escapism works well.
