Get the Gringo
Where did this film come from? The last major film Mel Gibson starred in was probably M. Night Shyamalan's Signs back in 2002. And here's a film, ten years later, that is surprisingly entertaining.
Get the Gringo stars an ageing Mel Gibson as a nameless scoundrel who evades cops in pursuit of him and drives across the border into Mexico only to land in jail. Once there, he has to keep his senses about him as he realizes that the prison is run by a ruthless gang leader.
Mel Gibson returns to form in the film, which is incidentally co-written by him. Watch it for its simple plot and engaging screenplay.
