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.
Is a phrase someone should have said to those who proposed this premise, which of course has been done (better) 100 times already.
It's inane teen fodder, poorly acted by low budget players, poorly written, poorly shot and fundamentally just poorly done.
There are plenty of better horror movies out there to see, even if you fancy teen eye candy (if that is what these teens were meant to be?).
In an era where singers are auto-tuned but still deemed good by the youth of today, it is no surprise that this cast might be deemed good also, it's just a pity no one has yet invented an 'auto-act' machine, or an 'auto-writeascript' machine.
Certainly don't waste money seeing this trash in a cinema, I would guess this will be available online within a matter of days.
