Storyline

An exhilarating mix of dark comedy, white-knuckle action and dramatic intrigue, Gringo joyrides into Mexico, where mild-mannered businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) finds himself at the mercy of his back-stabbing business colleagues back home, local drug lords and a morally conflicted black-ops mercenary. Crossing the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal, Harold battles to survive his increasingly dangerous situation in ways that raise the question: Is he out of his depth - or two steps ahead?

Progressive message missed by many critics
19 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

In my very amateur opinion the "professional" reviews I've read saying this movie has no point or subtext the reviewers are clearly not in possession of the ability to read between the lines. This is a satire pointing out the very real issues of how crooked wealthy, predominately white, capitalists in the U.S. use other countries to produce their drugs, take advantage of socio-economically disadvantaged folks to move their product and the use of predominately African American "middle managers" in the states to take the fall for them, both with the law and the various illegal entities all while they sit in their penthouses and profit. I could go more in depth but I don't want to spoil the twists. If you are able to pay attention, not have your movie handed to you, and enjoy progressive messages about the ways the capitalist system allows for exploitation of labor as well as commentary on racism. This movie is for you.
