GRINGO, a dark comedy mixed with white-knuckle action and dramatic intrigue, explores the battle of survival for businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) when he finds himself crossing the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal.
An exhilarating mix of dark comedy, white-knuckle action and dramatic intrigue, Gringo joyrides into Mexico, where mild-mannered businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) finds himself at the mercy of his back-stabbing business colleagues back home, local drug lords and a morally conflicted black-ops mercenary. Crossing the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal, Harold battles to survive his increasingly dangerous situation in ways that raise the question: Is he out of his depth - or two steps ahead?Written by

After Harold is taken from Mitch by the hotel employees, Mitch recovers from being hit by the car. He then gathers his equipment bag and staggers to his car. Mitch places his bag on the roof of the car, gets in, and drives away. In the next shot, his bag is on the seat next to him, when he actually left it on the roof. See more »

One was a man who had a crisis of faith and the other was a man who sold his soul for personal gain. So, you have to decide which one you want to be.

This movie was really funny and full of talented actors. Daniel Oyelowo holds it all together as the hapless protagonist. A cavalcade of goofy criminals and clever plot twists and turns keep it speeding along at a fast clip. Loads of fun.
