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.
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?Written by
After Harold is told two allegorical stories about gorillas, one by his wife and one by his boss, he asks why everyone is suddenly talking about the animal. He is later told a story about a black bear by Mitch Rusk, which closely resembles the attack by Travis the chimpanzee on Charla Nash in 2009. This would make the third story about great apes that appears in the film. See more »

Read the review by "scattershooting" to get the gist of the movie. I just want to add, that while I don't disagree with the review, I want to encourage you to see the film. it is well written and acted and you'll have a good time. it's a movie after all. it's not a sin to aim too high.
