"Gringo" is messy and at times incoherent, filled with pointless subplots and confounding “twists.”
U.S. Release Date: 2018-02-23
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Violence)
Director: John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein
Cast: Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Kyle Chandler, Sharon Horgan, Billy Magnussen, Lamorne Morris, Kylie Bunbury, Jesse Plemons, Danny Huston
Canny enough to go full-throttle with the absurd and not bother trying to do much with its meager dramatic and/or sentimental elements.
A family film whose infectious, crowd-pleasing song-and-dance numbers justify a 105-minute running length when the pedestrian story can’t.
Although hewing close to the established facts, the movie amps up the sentimental content for maximum effect.
"Goon: Last of the Enforcers" is a waste of time, money, talent, and the goodwill of viewers who appreciated the earlier picture.
Every aspect of the production was selected with the goal of keeping the audience in a state of escalating suspense.
A generally well-made but ultimately unsurprising excursion into the supernatural.

An Oscar-wannabe that didn’t make the cut and is being released in mid-August hoping to find a small audience.
The movie has its pleasures but not enough of them to make it worth the heavy time investment.
