Get the Gringo is Mel in his element,..adventure, violence, humorous, grim reality. I mean how can you NOT like this if you're a movie fan unless you're one those appalled by his personal life drama. I don't care,,he makes the best movies whether he's in them or directing and is truly one of the last Mohicans in today's short list of scrubs. Enjoy guys like him and Arnold before it's gone.
That said looking forward to his next project which is that Viking film Berserk which will probably be another great period film along the lines of Braveheart.
