Get The Gringo(How I Spent My Summer Vacation) directed by Adrian Grunberg is one of the finest movies to come out in the mid-2012 and one of the best Mel Gibson movies.
The movie is scheduled to release on 1st May 2012 in the U.S.A,but luckily in the Middle East it released a few weeks back and I was glad to watch it.
Although the movie may be a bit similar to Mel Gibson's Payback,but still Get The Gringo is fresh and entertaining.
Story:- A career criminal (Mel Gibson) nabbed by Mexican authorities is placed in a tough prison where he learns to survive with the help of a 9-year-old boy (Kevin Hernandez).
Mel Gibson delivers one of the best performances ever.
Get The Gringo is a stylish move with loads of action scenes,dark,gritty,humorous,violent and above all entertaining.
The director Adiran Grunberg does an excellent job.
All in all,Get The Gringo(How I spent my Summer Vacation) is a not only a must-watch for Mel Gibson fans but also for those who are not because it is one of the best movies to come out in the mid-2012.I am giving a nine on ten for Get The Gringo.Strongly Recommended!
