    Note: The Old Gringo () was the first American bestseller written by a Mexican author. “[The Old Gringo said] that to be stood up against a Mexican stone wall and shot to rags was a pretty good way to depart this life.

    The Old Gringo Carlos Fuentes, Author, Margaret Sayers Peden, Translator Farrar Straus Giroux $ (p) ISBN More By and About This Author.   Gringo is their first big, all-star movie (aside from David Michod's War Machine), and it seems a little outsized, a little overeager-to-please.

I'll just come out and say it: in my opinion, 'Get the Gringo' marks Mel Gibson's true return to the action superstar we use to love and admire so long ago. Granted, there is ' Edge of Darkness ' where we see several hints of the actor's former larger-than-life persona, but that mystery thriller isn't particularly good and it didn't really take.
