Get the Gringo

Leading American authorities on a high speed chase with several million dollars of mob money in tow, the getaway driver (Mel Gibson) crashes his car through a border fence and is detained by Mexican authorities. Detained illegally in a deadly prison that functions like a city, he relies on the help of a young boy to learn the ropes while plotting his a escape and plan to recover his money. "Get the Gringo" is third rate trash which earns its direct to video distribution. Gibson proves he can still carry a film, which makes matters all the more pathetic considering this is the kind of rubbish both he and the industry have relegated himself to.
