Gringo (15)

Action, Comedy, Crime

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.

The critical consensus

Overstuffed, star-studded crime comedy that goes from mildly entertaining to a mess.

**(*)(*)(*)Matthew Turner, The List, 08/03/2018

The film periodically livens up, and Oyelowo shows that he can play comedy, but his performance isn’t given much guidance or room to grow and the direction is very flat and uninspired.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 08/03/2018

A pitch-black, often very funny slice of pulp fiction with a number of stand-out performances, notably the ferocious Theron.

****(*)Chris Hewitt, Empire Online, 09/03/2018

A few laughs here and there but largely falls flat.

**(*)(*)(*)Naomi Wong, Little White Lies, 10/03/2018

This woolly-headed thriller is so casually incoherent, so erratically paced and unfocused that you rather suspect that medical marijuana featured as heavily in the writing process as it does in the plot.
