Gringo is an ok movie. I totally had the wrong expectations from the trailer that has been playing.
The trailer makes it appear that this is a dark comedy. The comedy is rather lacking for me. I think one scene got a laugh in the theater I was in…except for one person laughed the whole movie.
Harrold, aka the Gringo, is basically shit upon for the bulk of the movie. This movie happens to him until the final reel.
I do think I would rate this higher if I hadn’t gone in expecting more comedy.
