After being forced to sell his family ranch to developers, a financially strapped but proud senior citizen and his estranged grandson find themselves targeted by drug dealers in search of a missing money bag.
A former Arizona sheriff's wife is killed while riding on their ranch property. It would appear a Mexican man illegally crossing into the US is at fault. As the former and the current sheriff search for answers, lives are changed forever.
Forced to give up his land and his only home, cantankerous Texas rancher Red Bovie isn't about to go quietly to the dismal trailer park that's all he can now afford, and instead goes off with his grandson Gally - son of his long-estranged son Jimmy - for one last wild and woolly adventure during a night in Old Mexico.

ANIOM Casting Breakdown
Part of this movie was shot in Brownsville, Texas, and the building architecture shown is obviously twentieth century American and not Mexican. Also, the drawbridge across the Arroyo Colorado in Rio Hondo, Texas is supposed to be the bridge across the Rio Grande, but the minimal "guard house" style customs buildings shown are reminiscent of perhaps the 1920's, and are nothing at all like the enhanced security buildings and systems used today.

Bring it here.
Let me see some money first.
Look man, here's the money.

Now bring that stuff over here.

You can say whatever you want about Robert Duvall but he always delivers in a movie. I don't think I ever saw him playing bad. And in A Night In Old Mexico he again puts down a very good performance playing the grandfather of Gally (played by Jeremy Irvine). Jeremy Irvine and Angie Cepeda are good in their roles as well but still it is Duvall that makes this movie worth watching. The story is well written, it's like watching everything a little bit in slow motion but there is enough action and good dialogs to keep you entertained. You feel for the old man that doesn't want to end his life in a tin can. I certainly did enjoy this movie, like any other with Duvall in it.
