I think a couple of lines from Bob Dylan’s «Quinn the Eskimo (Mighty Quinn)» might sum up how I feel about this movie:
I like to do just like the rest, I like my sugar sweet,
But guarding fumes and making haste,
It ain't my cup of meat
I like my sugar sweet. I like my jokes to be funny. I like my movies to have (something resembling) a plot. This movie wasn't my cup of meat.
If this movie's been hyped; don't believe it. If it's been trashed; don't believe it.
Get the Gringo is a fun, fast-paced, action-packed prison movie, not quite like anything I've seen before. At times predictable, but with tounge firmly in cheek and a devilish twinkle it its eye.
