Get The Gringo

Synopsis: Heading toward the Mexican border, a getaway driver disguised as a clown and his wounded accomplice try to escape the American Police with a loot of over $2 million hidden in the trunk of the car. In a desperate attempt to break through the thick border fence, the driver crashes the car, the accomplice dies and he inevitably gets apprehended by Mexican Police officers Romero and Vasquez who want the money just for themselves. As the only American inmate in the infamous "El Pueblito" Mexican prison, which resembles more of a small village of convicts rather than a usual prison, the driver quickly gets the nickname "The Gringo" and finds out first hand how rough it is to be a stranger in the perilous world of Javi, the ruthless crime lord who runs the prison. Sooner or later, the Gringo will form an alliance with a 10-year-old kid whose peculiar immunity in this mad place will efficiently keep him alive, only to realise that in this pit, everyone knows about the $2 million.

- I need a doctor!

- I'll get you a vet, you son of a b*tch!

You should have shot him first.

We have two clowns headed south

on Route 51 and 4 miles from the border.

And stop bleedin' on the money!

All units be advised: suspects

are armed and are dangerous.

What the f***...

Well, hello, boys and girls.

There's nothing worse than a sad clown.

Unless it's a clown bleeding internally,

and coughing it all over your money.

Well, I suppose a summer vacation with a big haul

south of the border was out of the question now.

But like my old mother always told me

F*** off, Loser!


- Holy sh*t!

- The circus came to town!

- Vasquez...tell you what, we'll take care of this.

- You better! You know the paperwork involved.

- We'll say they landed on your side, okay?

- No problemo.


- We might have to book them ourselves.

- Bullshit!

These are our prisoners, Vasquez.

Not the way I see it, Bill,

they're on Mexican soil.

You're a piece of sh*t, Vasquez!

There's no way you're takin' these clowns!

You're not in a position to bargain.

I paid for our little arrangement every

second Tuesday of the month, to...

F*** you, Vasquez, you thinkin' about

blowin' the whistle on me or something, huh?

Yeah! If I need to.

- Is that a threat, Cabrn?

- Look. you're corrupt, we're corrupt.

There is one difference...

we are honest about it.

You'd best bury them in that god damned I don't

give a f*** slap on the wrist beaner system in your...

You win, Bill, you won't be hearing from them again.

Hey! What did they do?

Rob a bank?

You figure it out, Genius!


- What's your name?

- I'm Bozo, he's Frosty with a...

- What's your name?

- Howard? Dennis?

Ah! F***!


Don't worry, we'll give him a nice burial,

relieve you of your money troubles

and find you a nice place.

You'll be happy there.

Ah! Prison!

I lucked out,

it coulda been a hole in the desert.

And since I didn't have any cash,

I guess they were forced to charge me.

God only knew where my cash was,

but at least I knew who had it.

That's been playing for six f***ing hours.

Tortured by the Mariachi.

Ah, what's this?

Oh! Inmates with guns...

now that's kinda new.

I got a lot to learn about this place.

Dancing with the Stars...

I see.

Get your mind right, soften you up in a whole

new cell with loud music, deprive you of sleep.

Oh, well, I guess I was gonna have

to take my lumps sooner or later.

- Shoes?

- Huh? Yeah?

The shoes, dick-head!

You look like you have really small feet

and these are size 11.

Ah! F***in' ouch!

Jack, you work too hard.

The consulate is closed.

I just came to pick up the files.

I think you may be forgetting to report an

American citizen, that's a serious offense, Armando.

Honest mistake, Jack.

Come see me tomorrow,

we'll sort it out.

Oh, boy!

5000 songs or so later

we were let out of the holding cell.

and transferred to the

general prison populace.

Now, I've been in the joint before,

but this was kinda different.

Is this a prison or

the world's shittiest mall?

If I was gonna survive in this place,

it was time to do what I was good at.


I was outta cigarettes.

Holy Rolex!


Thank you.

Well, it was bed time at El Pueblito. It looked

like all the good pieces of dirt were taken.

Ya know, ya gotta love

Mel Gibson

Mel Colmcille Gerard Gibson (born January 3, 1956) is an American actor and filmmaker. He is best known for his action hero roles, namely his breakout role as Max Rockatansky in the first three films in the Mad Max post-apocalyptic action series, and as Martin Riggs in the Lethal Weapon buddy cop film series. Gibson was born in Peekskill, New York. He moved with his parents to Sydney, Australia, when he was 12 years old, and studied acting at the National Institute of Dramatic Art. During the 1980s, he founded Icon Entertainment, a production company which independent film director Atom Egoyan has called "an alternative to the studio system". Director Peter Weir cast him as one of the leads in the critically acclaimed World War I drama Gallipoli (1981), which earned Gibson a Best Actor Award from the Australian Film Institute, as well as a reputation as a serious, versatile actor. Gibson produced, directed, and starred in the epic historical drama film Braveheart (1995), for which he won the Golden Globe Award and Academy Award for Best Director, along with the Academy Award for Best Picture. He later directed and produced the financially successful, and controversial, biblical drama film The Passion of the Christ (2004). He received further critical notice for his directorial work of the action-adventure film Apocalypto (2006), which is set in Mesoamerica during the early 16th century. After several legal issues and controversial statements leaked to the public, Gibson held a 10-year hiatus from directing, before returning with the critically acclaimed Hacksaw Ridge (2016), which won two Academy Awards and was nominated for another four, including Best Picture and Best Director for Gibson, his second nomination in the category. more…
