GET THE GRINGO ( MA)
Stars: Mel Gibson, Kevin Hernandez
Director: Adrian Grunberg
Available: Now on DVD and BD Considering Mel Gibson’s recent offerings, to say he needs a hit is an understatement. While this is unlikely to get him back on the A- list it’s hardly a misstep and arguably it’s his most enjoyable film in the past decade. He stars as a hardened crim who has been nabbed by corrupt Mexican cops, robbed of his recent million- dollar score and thrown in a nightmarish prison where he befriends a young boy who’s in desperate need of help. The role fits Gibson like a glove and those who like violent action and quirky caper business will find it a fun time.
Extras: A look inside the production and a music video.
