|Comments||The material contains complex and mature themes that are presented in a context of a dark thriller and crime drama. Themes explore shady business dealings, loyalty, betrayal, kidnapping, rescue missions, organised crime, drug cartels, infidelity, kidnapping, murder, friendship, undercover policing, corruption, revenge and survival. The overall cumulative impact of themes is violent, dark, realistic, of organised crime, under world dealings and would be psychologically threatening, confusing, distressing, upsetting and inappropriate for children under 16 years as they lack acceptable and normal societal moral compass. Furthermore the presentation and use of language by Elaine is glamorised and normalised through out the film and would be immoral and misleading for children under the age of 16. The overall cumulative impact of themes and classifiable elements is of a strong to very strong impact.|

What the Critics say
Ilan Preskovsky On a technical level, it's not hard to understand why so many critics have really torn into Gringo as it is something of a shambolic mess but it's hard not to be taken in by it – and most especially by its lead character and the guy who brings him to such endearing life.
Jim Judy I can't say I was ever bored and I did find myself entertained just enough throughout to give Gringo a middle of the road 5 out of 10 rating.
Tomatometer Gringo rounds up a bafflingly overqualified cast for a misfire of a comedy that's fatally undermined by its messy plot, poorly conceived characters, and obvious debts to better films.

Jeffrey M. Anderson Strong language, drug content in over-the-top action-comedy.
