GRINGO movie poster 2018

Janet's TAKE: #GringoMovie is mindless entertainment in the form of a South-of-the-Border crime escapade. B-

David Oyelowo shows he has some

comedic talent and the plot has enough twists to hold your interest even though the rest of the cast seems somewhat toned-down in what could have been an outrageous comedy.

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 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?  Starring David Oyelowo, Charlize Theron, Joel Edgerton, Amanda Seyfried and Thandie Newton. -STX Films/Amazon Studios
