Default 'Get the Gringo' - High-Def Digest Review

Mel Gibson is in fine form in 'Get the Gringo.' Will this mark a turning point in his career? Is Mad Mel the new king of DTV releases? Watch out Seagal, E says this film is recommended!

Did ANYONE get this who is willing to admit to it? It's doing well on the charts, so I know I'm not the only one to blind buy it.

If I don't get a review copy soon I will blind-buy it. Always thought it looked great.

I've was able to rent it last weekend. Not bad. Found it to be entertaining in an over the top action sort of way. Mel is good. Reminded me of his performance in Payback.

A lot of talk of it being an unofficial sequel to Payback.

Hmmmmmmm, now I'm even more interested. Like a spiritual sequel? Like Grosse Point Blank and War INC?

Yeah. This is just going on what I've read, but folks are saying Driver is Porter, and Porter is Driver.

I want to check this out. Personal issues and beliefs aside, I like Mel as an actor.

Default Mel is so back, and home theatre?

Get the Gringo was a blind buy for me and I loved it. Proves that Mad Mel still has what it takes and can still deliver a very entertaining movie. One thing in the review that bugged me though is the mention of home theatre taking preference over movie theatres and that supposedly the gap is getting narrower. I couldn't disagree more. How long has that discussion been taking place? Since TV was invented? Year after year movie theatre's are breaking box office records with record attendance every summer. I think watching more movies at home with better equipment is just making people love movies more which just drives them to the theatre more often. Just my opinion. Nothing at home will ever replace the movie theatre experience.
