Get the Gringo (2012)

 For fans that have wondered what would have happened if Riggs was less bi-polar and on the other side of the law, this is the movie for them.

I hate to admit it, but I enjoyed this film. Based on observed behaviors one could easily deduct that Mel Gibson is a lunatic. However, I do not feel psychosis and antisemitism really have anything to do with this individual film. A certain Elmore Leonard quality emanates from the plot and characters of  Get the Gringo. It's worth watching and one of my personal favorites of recent Mel films.

3.3 Stars.
