Combining dark comedy with dramatic intrigue, Gringo joyrides across the border into Mexico, where all is not as it seems for mild-mannered American businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo). Crossing the line from citizen to criminal, Harold tangles with duplicitous business partners, Mexican drug lords, international mercenaries, and the DEA. As he attempts to survive in one of the most dangerous places on earth, the question lingers: is this ordinary man in way over his head, or is he two steps ahead? Directed by Nash Edgerton, who made his feature length directorial debut with the acclaimed Australian thriller The Square, Gringo also stars Joel Edgerton, Amanda Seyfried, Charlize Theron, Yul Vazquez, Thandie Newton, and Sharlto Copley. Financed by Amazon Studios, the film is written by Anthony Tambakis and Matthew Stone, and produced by Rebecca Yeldham, Nash Edgerton, Beth Kono, A.J. Dix, Charlize Theron and Anthony Tambakis.

Looks good. Saw the trailer a few weeks ago and they played it in front of Den of Thieves.

His last movie, The Square, was fantastic. Looking forward to this one...

And it's directed by Nash Edgerton, Joel's brother.

The ads on TV for this one are absolutely awful, whoever is in charge of that campaign did a terrible job.

I didn't know about this movie until it was mentioned on social media in connection with Theron attending something.

Charlize Theron absolutely chewed up the scenery when she was on screen. Edgerton was very good as a clichéd corporate greedy villain. His scenes came in a close second. Everything else was pretty fair at best. 2.5/5

Is it more like her role in Reindeer Games or like in the Italian Job?

It has been so long since I've seen either of those movies, I really don't remember her well enough to guess.

Basically she was a she-bitch on wheels. The Alpha female ready to throw anyone under the bus and bang her way to the top.

Thanks but...not exactly what I was asking.

Reindeer Games was a hard R....

While the Italian Job was a soft PG-13.........

It's actually exactly what you asked.

So are you asking if you see nudity...? If so, just ask like someone who is adult enough to handle nudity.

No nudity. Simulated but clothed sex scene between she and Edgerton. Tons of F-bombs. Head shots.

Saw this last week. Thought the Cast was solid but the Script pretty sloppy.

Spoiler:
The film had a Sub-Plot overload

Just watched this and it was pretty good. Horribly marketed but not bad at all. Charlize stole the show - she was a bad bitch!

I agree with Hazel Motes. Braveheart was better.
