GRINGO, a dark comedy mixed with white-knuckle action and dramatic intrigue, explores the battle of survival for businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) when he finds himself crossing the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal.
A gritty crime saga which follows the lives of an elite unit of the LA County Sheriff's Dept. and the state's most successful bank robbery crew as the outlaws plan a seemingly impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank.
O'Shea Jackson Jr.
Ignore the bad reviews. Give it a try, you'll be glad you did.
Ignore the bad reviews. Saw this today with my (picky) son and we both liked it. OK It's not gonna win any super awards, but It's funny and quirky and it stands on its own.
I've never been a massive Owen Wilson fan, but here he shows his big brother side and is actually pretty good. Yes ok It's the typical Wilson role, but he brings a little extra to his character that he doesn't usually emote in most of his movies.
Ed Helms nails it and is as funny as always. I don't understand the hate surrounding Ed, he's a really funny guy and a talented actor. They both play off each other brilliantly in this movie and I would pay to see more of their comedy pairing.
Add in the brilliant Glenn Close, the awesome Christopher Walken, the kickass Ving Rhames and other great cameos and you've got yourself a decent comedy that's worth the £8 at the cinema.
Give it a chance, I reckon you might enjoy it.
And as always, NEVER go and watch a movie with any expectations. That way you will enjoy it more :)
