In the Chicago offices of Promethium Pharmaceuticals, co-presidents Richard Rusk and Elaine Markinson receive a call from a company employee, Harold Soyinka, who claims he has been kidnapped in Mexico and that his abductors are demanding a ransom of five million US dollars. One day earlier, Harold, Richard, and Elaine arrive in Mexico where they meet Sanchez, head of Promethium's Mexico plant. Unbeknownst to Harold, it is revealed that Sanchez has been selling Promethium's latest product, medical marijuana in the shape of a pill, to a Mexican cartel. Promethium has decided to cut them off to avoid harming their upcoming merger. Later that evening, as Richard, Elaine and Harold have dinner, Harold secretly records Richard's and Elaine's conversations while he is away from the table. He learns from the recording the merger plans, which would result in Harold losing his job. That night, he also discovers that his wife is having an affair and wants a divorce. Sanchez informs cartel leader Villegas about them getting cut off by Promethium; Villegas maims Sanchez and, believing that Harold is Promethium's boss, orders his capture..

I can't say I am a huge fan of movies from the 90's but I am sure you will not regret seeing this film. It was well shot, a good soundtrack, and the story line was unique. Overall this was a very good movie and I highly recommend you check it out. Don't be turned off by the fact it was set in the 80's. There are just so many people out there like me that missed out on this film in the 80's. I found this movie very interesting and thought I would give it a chance. It is definitely worth a look. I found it interesting that the movie was set in the 80's, and the actors looked a little older, and the music seemed a little dated. Maybe it is because I am a little older than they are. For example, Jennifer Lopez is just starting to hit it big, but she still looks younger than I. Regardless, she was great. I think she was great in this film. However, another big surprise was Christa Campbell. I have always thought that she was a good actress, but she was great in this film. I would definitely recommend this movie. I think most people will enjoy this movie.

Let's just say this: if you're looking for a great movie, a truly shocking "action movie" like "The Big Hit" or "The Long Kiss Goodnight" might have you. I personally loved "Gringo". Yes, it's got all of that, but it also has a few twists and surprises and it's a very original movie. This movie is a movie that you don't see a lot of, and it's a good movie. I would recommend "Gringo" to anyone who has ever been in a movie with a bad cast, a bad script, and a bad director. This is a movie you don't see a lot of, and that's okay. It's a good movie.

I read the summary of this movie and thought it sounded fun. My husband thought it was a bit stupid. I was like: "Well, whatever, it's what I pay to see a movie anyway." Then I saw it and I loved it. I thought the plot was entertaining and clever. It was a little dark but it didn't take itself too seriously. I found the story and the acting very believable. I thought it was very original. I liked the big French guy, although his accent was a little off. I liked the way the French guy was able to talk to his 'employees' in a way that the rest of the world cannot understand, but they understand in the story. It was good. I thought that the French woman was very attractive. Her accent was great. I loved the way she had a fetish for the French language and the way she learned to speak it. I found the ending very sad, but I didn't mind that it was sad. I thought the jokes were funny and it was a good way to end a movie. I thought that it was an original plot and interesting, so I would recommend it.

I am not a big fan of Robin Williams or Law & Order. But I did enjoy this movie. I would recommend watching this movie with an open mind. You'll find yourself enjoying it. I felt like I was in a dream. The movie is based on the plot of the novel by Michael Crichton. I found it was really enjoyable. The cast is great. I didn't think that they had the best acting skills. But they are all very talented. If you like crime stories or if you are a fan of Robin Williams then you should like this movie. You might even like it more than me.

I like the movie. It is a very funny movie and all the characters are well developed. The problem is that I feel that the movie was very shallow. All the characters were not developed enough to the point that I couldn't get into their life, although the movie was very funny. The funniest parts were in the movie and in the dialogues. The last fight was the funniest thing I ever saw in my life, but all the funny dialogues in the movie were very shallow. If you want to see a movie that is very funny and not too deep, watch it, but if you want to see a very deep movie then you better stay away from this one. I give it a 7.5/10 because I liked the movie, but I would have liked to see the characters in more depth.

I found this film to be very watchable, the acting was quite good and the storyline had it's good moments and the characters were believable. I would like to know what others think about this film and I'll be sure to look out for more by this director. He should have had a bigger budget and more actors. The acting was good for the most part but the two female leads were quite disappointing and the scenes where they meet were not that realistic. The rest of the film is very watchable but not quite up to par. The story line was about a black man who is a former police officer and is trying to adjust to life in South Central, in search of his father. The film was interesting and I thought the ending was a little bit underwhelming but all in all it was a very watchable film.

This film is just one of those films that will challenge you. Although this is a hard film to sit through, this is an amazing film. It may not have a great story line or a great story cast, but I can tell you that this film is just as good as any of the other gangster films that are out. The first time I saw this film, I didn't think it was that good, but I ended up really liking it. I would say that this is a great film, it's no masterpiece, but it's just a great film. A classic. 7 out of 10

I was really happy to see this film. I watched it several times last year in a row. It is a very good film and it is one of those films that you just can't go without seeing. The acting is great. I believe that every character is portrayed perfectly. A lot of people complained that the film was boring. That may be true. But the real pleasure to this film is the humour that makes this film so entertaining. As you would expect from a film that has the director of Iron Man, Tony Stark, in it. The film is a lot of fun. The scenes that are shot in the Caribbean are very well done. You feel that you are right there on the island. I thought that the character's were funny and I laughed a lot during the film. I can't say enough about the story. This is a very good film that I would recommend to anybody.

This is one of those films that I just kind of want to watch again and again. It is a very well-written and very well-acted film that I will probably watch over and over again. The characters in this movie are very well-rounded. While the plot may be a little confusing at times, the characters' motivations and actions make sense. There are very funny moments in this movie, and I really enjoyed seeing Harry Shearer in this movie. I also like the idea of the "Castro family", so I think that there are lots of people who will enjoy this movie. The plot is fairly good, and it is very well-paced, making the film flow well. The script is witty, entertaining, and has a lot of strong political and social messages. I think this film is really cool, and it is really well-written. Overall, I give this movie an 8 out of 10.

I've seen the original, and thought it was great. I loved this remake. This version is much better, in my opinion. For one thing, there's more character development. Some characters we've known from the original are gone. Elmer Fudd is gone. A couple of minor characters are gone. Ron Perlman is gone. But no one is. The plot is still the same. It's not as long as the original, but that's not the point. The point is the film is more well-rounded. It's more fun. I would recommend this to anyone who loved the original. I would not recommend this to people who haven't seen the original. It's not the same, and is not for everybody.

I'm a big fan of Michael Rooker and he was one of my favorite characters on Game of Thrones. This movie just made him even more popular. This movie is a cop show. For the first half hour or so, it was really entertaining. I'm sure you'll have a fun time watching it, but the second half of the movie lost it for me. Maybe I'm being picky, but I thought there were a few things that made the movie a bit awkward for me, such as.a character calling himself the best detective in the city and a character who was probably dead at one point that got back to life. In this day and age, you really need to watch this movie after a while, just because it's entertaining. The plot is interesting, the performances are good, and it's just a good movie.

This is the kind of movie that makes you think. The first half hour is more like an advert for the sequel, but it is not bad at all. First, there is the story. A gang of street punks are brought together to defend themselves from gangsters and a corrupt cop. But what is the story really about? I have read that in their country, the police might shoot in self defense. But then again, I don't know the truth. That is not the only interesting thing about this movie. It has a really interesting story, about a gangster that is supposedly a friend of an old gangster who was killed by them. But he is in fact the real bad guy. This is why they start this investigation. They are sure that this old gangster is a bad guy, but it's hard to prove it. The second half of the movie is really interesting, because it shows that the two gangs have become friends, which is important for the story. At the end, they have to get together to protect their territory. This is the interesting part of the movie, because it shows that even if they were friends, they are still fighting for their territory. The interesting part is that the movie is based on a real story, and the director has an idea of how the real story might be. But it's not like the real story is really important to the movie, which makes the movie even more interesting.

Crazy things happen in South Central Los Angeles, and it is not a good thing. Perhaps that is the most intriguing aspect of this movie. By the end of the movie, I had forgotten that I had actually seen a movie. The acting in the movie is good, and the script is engaging. The story is not a typical Hollywood movie and it is not a typical Hollywood crime movie. It has a few surprises, and the audience should not be disappointed by it. In my opinion, this is a well-done movie. Perhaps a 7 out of 10, but I would recommend this movie.

Well, I just saw it for the second time, and it was certainly one of the funniest movies I have seen this year. It is a true exploitation movie, in a sense that the content is tame and tasteless, but the music and acting are great. Some of the actors have really grown up, and most of them have had some good success since the movies started. Robert Rodriguez is very good as the director, and is a real one to watch, in that respect. For me, it was very much worth it. I give it a 7/10, as it is a good film, not to be missed. The fact that the original music by Mojo, is very much present in this film, makes the movie even funnier.

I'm a fan of Nicolas Cage and I find him funny. I enjoy his work even if he's not one of my favorites. The rest of the cast are also good, especially that annoying computer voice. This movie is a comedy, you know? One thing I think is missing from this movie is the love for a true relationship. It feels like they're watching a movie about a dysfunctional relationship and you just want them to get together. I really like that part, but that part is missing in this movie. That's why I'm giving it a 7 out of 10.

I never read the comic, so I can't comment on how accurate the film is to the comic. It's certainly more comical than the original, and I really enjoyed the dialogue between Gringo and Gringo Jr. that shows just how close they are. I recommend this film for anyone who likes comic books.

One thing I did not enjoy about this film was the fact that the only thing that made it worth watching was to see Mark Wahlberg and Charlize Theron. That and the fact that I'd seen a lot of bad comedies recently. The Good: Charlize Theron. Seriously, she was the best thing in the film, as she played a moody housewife who loved her husband (Richard Crenna) but couldn't be with her kids. I found her character to be funny and believable, especially in her role as a divorcee. Mark Wahlberg was also a lot of fun to watch as a crook. Not much else to say about this. The Bad: The fact that this film was made in the 80's. I'm sure the director and producer didn't want to bother to write a script for this. The Director and Producer should have worked on other movies first before making a film like this. There were times when I was wondering what the director was trying to accomplish with this film, but I would say that the production crew and the screenwriter got everything they could out of this. The Acting: Mark Wahlberg. I could never imagine a man playing his role of a crook so well. I had no idea that he had such a large fan base back in the day. I think the actor that played his character has gone on to be a big star. He was so funny and good at his role. I was on the edge of my seat watching him. Charlize Theron. She was the real deal. I know people will say that she played a less than perfect role, but I think the film was more about her character than her performance. The casting director could have picked someone else to play this role. The plot was a little bit predictable. It wasn't a bad movie, but I didn't love it as much as I hoped to. Overall: The film was great. If you like films that aren't as good as "The Godfather" or "Casino Royale", then I'm sure you will enjoy this film. I gave it a 7 out of 10. If you like comedies, then I'd say give it a try. You may find it to be a little more enjoyable than I did. 7/10

If I didn't know it was by director Gus Van Sant I would think that this was an Asian movie. But it isn't. The plot of this film was absolutely stupid. But I think that is what the director wanted to show. The more I think about this movie the more I think that it was an eye opener for me. The Chinese gangsters look like they are from a different world and they all dress alike, even the English gangsters. This just shows that a black gangster can exist in the United States. I think that is why this movie was so popular. A black gangster gang called the Bloods gets involved in a hit and get beaten up. But the gangsters turn on the Bloods and start killing the Bloods. What could have been a bunch of Chinese punks turns into a gang of Chinese gangsters and that's just what I think is going on in this movie. Overall this is a film that will be interesting to see. It's a film that I have never seen before but now I hope I can see it again in the future.

I saw this movie with a few friends. As I have never seen this before, I had a hard time catching up on the time that was passed and that this movie was made, which was a whopping five years ago. At that time I couldn't understand why this movie was so bad, but now, after some time, I can say that this movie is a really good movie. I don't know, maybe I just thought that this movie was a truely awesome movie. It is just a really good movie. The story is simple. A ruthless gang leader named Joe (Bill Nighy) is trying to take over the gang, in order to gain control over the local gang. Along the way, he will find a woman named Claire (Penelope Cruz) that will help him take over the gang. She has a special part in the gang, but not in the real world. But it will change, as it will make Joe's mission much easier. The characters in this movie are really good, although a lot of the time it seems that some characters have really bad behavior. It really seems like they just go on with their personal lives. The rest of the cast really did a really good job, in their roles. The only bad part in this movie is the screenplay. I think the director should be more focused on directing the screenplay and not the actors. However, the screenplay is so good, that it could make the movie watchable for many people. My final rating of this movie is 7/10.

Conejo y Roblox is a movie that I really enjoyed. It is a good movie. It is funny, it is imaginative, it is a good movie. It also is a bit of a message about the power of social media. I was very impressed with this movie. The characters were likable and the plot was well developed. I think this is a movie that any teenager could enjoy. I think the acting was really good in this movie. I liked the songs. There are some catchy songs in this movie. I also think that this movie is a good movie for kids. I liked the humor in this movie. I don't think that it was that adult humor that I would expect from a movie like this. I think that this is a good movie for adults that enjoy good movies.

This was an interesting movie, but I must say it did not hit my favorite comedy. I enjoyed the dark humor and the melodrama of the characters, but the final ending did not do it for me. It left me feeling I missed something. The movies had dark comedy and so when the movie ended, I thought I had a good time. But when I did finish it, I was still trying to decide if I really liked it. As I saw the ratings, I thought I would rate it a 5. Instead I rate it a 7 because I would recommend it for a group of friends and because it was fun. I was not a fan of Larry and Jim but they had a lot of good chemistry and it worked. This movie was different than the previous ones, so I enjoyed it.

If you're a fan of mainstream crime movies, you'll love this one. It's not about the macho guy beating the bad guys. It's about the macho guy beating the bad guys. And it's well written and acted. The story is a good one. One that will grab you and hold you until the end. The only problem I had with it was that there wasn't really any actual violence and there was a lot of fake blood and fake blood spilling everywhere. But I don't care. The acting is good. And the ending is a pretty good one. So, if you're a fan of American crime movies and you're in the mood for a movie, then give this one a try. You won't be disappointed.
