Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Comedy (Dark) Drama - This is an ensemble dark comedy aimed at adult moviegoers. David Oyelowo plays the focal role, but most of the other familiar faces such as Charlize Theron, Joel Edgerton, and Amanda Seyfried have substantial supporting roles. Constant language, brutal violence, and some sexual content make the film strictly for adults.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good ...a largely fun watch, a corporate crime tale of consistent tartness enacted by a superb cast. That cast is the first thing that makes the not-badness of "Gringo" a little less of a surprise. I was a little more irritated by a certain bit of withholding at the finale but the overall experience of "Gringo" is pretty tangy.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average The circuitous narrative of Nash Edgerton's Gringo is such that it never allows for a character or storyline to develop in a particularly efficient way, as every few minutes an abrupt twist or turn sets things off in a new and unexpected direction. The film, packed to the brim with characters and plot points, is but a series of barely connected threads.

Newsday Full Review
Below Average Dark comedy is a difficult needle to thread, and one absolutely necessary quality to do it well is intelligence. But the treatment of Elaine isn't smart at all, just sensationalist and shocking. This "Gringo" is better off staying underground forever.

The Guardian Full Review
Below Average Impressive stunts and occasional flashes of wit can't save this strained comedy drama... The film periodically livens up, and Oyelowo shows that he can play comedy, but his performance isn't given much guidance or room to grow and the direction is very flat and uninspired.

Unfortunately, this was not a well attended movie so we weren't able to collect very many reviews.
TEENS: The lone male loved it. The lone female felt it was only an "average" movie.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: None
