If you miss the good ol’ days of Lethal Weapon and Mad Max, Mel Gibson’s latest film Get the Gringo looks like it could be a decent return to form for him. He plays Driver, an American criminal who violently crashes his car through the border wall while trying to outrun the U.S. Border Patrol and lands in a hardcore Mexican prison. In the middle of this ruthless penal colony, Driver must do whatever it takes to survive, even if he must turn to the unlikely guidance from a 10-year-old kid who shows him the ropes.
