Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: When Flaca steals the satchel containing the $2 million and is chased by The Man, she runs as if the bag is virtually empty. In fact, $2 million in 100s (at 497 US bills to the pound) weighs over 40 pounds, and the heavy satchel (about 1/3 of her estimated weight) would have slowed her down considerably. The weight of the bag would also have likely drawn the interest of the thugs who throw it at him (again, as if it weighs about 5 pounds).See more »

Why should i watch El Gringo, 18 May 2012
Author: Ervis Arapi from Canada

If you like action this movie will not disappoint the story is nothing that hasn't been done before but it is put together quiet well, and the acting is as good as it gets for a low budget movie... of course its not a masterpiece but i feel it deserves a chance. Reading some of the reviews i felt that they forgot to mention that this was a movie meant to entertain people and it does just that, i was very entertained by the end of it and not only was i entertained but i found myself with a silly smile on my face from laughing hard most times and then end up getting angry the next scene, this movie is like a roller coaster never a dull moment. I highly recommend it simply for its high entertainment value, don't go in expecting Quentin Tarantino.. but were you to sit down and watch a movie simply because you enjoy watching a movie than this will not disappoint i assure you.
