I’m not sure why the film makers decided on using two names for the film,depending on where you live,it’s,How I spent my summer vacation or Get the Gringo,I prefer the Gringo title,it relates to the film,while the vacation title sounds like a Julia Roberts rom’ com.
Back to this film and I was impressed,Mel Gibson seems to split the room lately,but if we are talking about talent,Mel is one of my favourite actors /directors,some of my favourite films include Apocolypto and Payback.
Mel plays a mysterious bad egg who find’s himself in trouble with the Mexican police,the back drop and the story are original,while the action comes together with style and excitement.
Mel is back to his best!
Side note – This movie has outstanding special effects
