Get The Gringo was filmed mostly indoors in a fictional Mexico prison where the inmates were in charge. The script produced funny dialog for Mel Gibson and lots of action. However, the blu-ray picture quality was lacking. This could have been the result of indoor filming with low light.\n\nBlu-ray achieves best result in outdoor scenes. For example, western movies with majestic landscapes. Overall, the movie was fun to watch. Had the picture quality been better, I would have given it 4 stars.
We thought the movie was great and watched it 3 times the first night we received it. We had problems with Amazon.com in getting the DVD (charged money, but no delivery of goods). After Amazon contacted me and stated I could no longer do business with them because I demanded a refund of monies when they failed to deliver the product, I found it on Walmart.com. We got the movie several days later and were amazed with Walmart's speed. The movie was as good as we had expected it to be - we love Mel Gibson! I just wish the movie had been shown in theaters because so many people won't get to see such a great film.
The movie showed the possibility of what to can happen these days. In the news we read of problems people encounter.\nShowing this movie to a group of friends some of the ladies were wiping the tears from their eyes.\nI recommend viewing the movie to understand what coming to America is about..\n\nThank you....\nDavid
