Gringo

When you’re in bed with the cartel, everyone gets screwed.
It’s going to be quite a night...
It’s going to be quite a night...
Featuring two of South African’s best-known exports to Hollywood, this film is about a hapless, mild-mannered American businessman who gets into a dispute with not only his duplicitous business partners, but also Mexican drug lords, international mercenaries, and the US Drug Enforcement Agency. As he attempts to survive in one of the most dangerous places on earth, the question lingers: is this ordinary man in way over his head, or is he actually two steps ahead?

CommentsThe 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.
