Get the Gringo is an unusual prison movie with plenty of double-cross, smart moves, and violence, all set in Mexico.
The good. Gritty and rough environment with a very different setting and lots of details. Are Mexican prisons really like that? I don't know, but it's still interesting. Nice story. Well paced scenario. Well made action and violence.
The bad. Mel Gibson still plays a character relatively close to his usual roles. The American bad guys are lame.
The ugly. This flick doesn't bring anything new to the genre.
The result. Solid entertainment nonetheless if you're looking for some dirty violence. Much better than what you'd expect. If you're a Gibson fan, it's a must.
