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.

In addition to this movie, only one other Mel Gibson movie has been narrated by him, as the lead character, Payback (1999). In this movie, Driver (Mel) explains how he was once married, but his wife ran off with his former business associate. This same situation actually takes place in Payback, where his wife and business partner double-cross Gibson to run away together. Also, Gibson is a thief in both movies. See more »
During the chase at the beginning of the movie, tire tracks following a similar path can clearly be seen in the field as the cars near the Mexico border fence. Likely due to multiple takes when filming the scene. See more »
I need a doctor!

Get The Gringo(How I Spent My Summer Vacation) directed by Adrian Grunberg is one of the finest movies to come out in the mid-2012 and one of the best Mel Gibson movies.
The movie is scheduled to release on 1st May 2012 in the U.S.A,but luckily in the Middle East it released a few weeks back and I was glad to watch it.
Although the movie may be a bit similar to Mel Gibson's Payback,but still Get The Gringo is fresh and entertaining.
Story:- A career criminal (Mel Gibson) nabbed by Mexican authorities is placed in a tough prison where he learns to survive with the help of a 9-year-old boy (Kevin Hernandez).
Mel Gibson delivers one of the best performances ever.
Get The Gringo is a stylish move with loads of action scenes,dark,gritty,humorous,violent and above all entertaining.
The director Adiran Grunberg does an excellent job.
All in all,Get The Gringo(How I spent my Summer Vacation) is a not only a must-watch for Mel Gibson fans but also for those who are not because it is one of the best movies to come out in the mid-2012.I am giving a nine on ten for Get The Gringo.Strongly Recommended!
