Get the Gringo

 (2012)

Get the Gringo Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Mel Gibson stars in this action thriller set in a Mexican prison. Driver (Gibson) is a career criminal who crashes his car while trying to escape from the United States Border Patrol in a high-speed car chase over the US-Mexico border. With a trunk full of cash and a bleeding body on his back seat, things aren't looking good for Driver, and he soon finds himself in El Pueblito, Mexico's toughest prison, where life is especially harsh for 'gringos'. However, Driver's bid for survival is unexpectedly aided by his friendship with a 10-year-old boy (Kevin Hernandez).

Get the Gringo Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Get the Gringo crosses the Blu-ray border with a 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation that—beyond seeming merely faithful to source—looks pretty damn good. The film was shot digitally using the ever popular Red One cameras, which, when coupled with high quality lenses, are capable of producing a strikingly sharp picture. That's certainly the case here; just check out the pores and creases of Mel Gibson's iconic mug in closeup. There some softer shots, to be sure, but most of the film exhibits a great degree of fine, high definition detail. The film's overall aesthetic is punchy and a bit gritty, with high contrast and a hint of intentional noise in the image—I'm guessing some sort of post-production grain effect. Color is vividly pumped up; reds pop off the screen, highlights take on a creamy yellow cast in hot outdoor sequences, and skin tones go appropriately tanned. Blacks are plenty deep, without crushing relevant shadow detail. I did notice a few blink-and-you'll-miss-'em digital anomalies—some mild aliasing on fine parallel lines, a flash of moire shimmer—but nothing pervasive or distracting. Get the Gringo looks great.


Get the Gringo Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The film's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track musters up a significant amount of oomph and immersion. The multi-channel mix makes full use of the soundfield to deliver potent aural action from nearly start to finish. Cars zip and roar between channels in the opening chase sequence. The crash through the border fence is accompanied by a throbbing low-end rumble. Shootouts feature gunfire spraying from every direction, each shot popping off with intensity. Grenades explode loudly, sending debris spraying outward. Backing all this up is a Latin-infused score by Antonio Pinto, occasionally squealing with Santana-like electric guitar. Everything sounds as clear and full and clean as it ought to, although there were one or two scenes where the mid-range seemed a bit too round—for a lack of a better word—taking some of the edge off the highs. Not a big issue though. Note that the dialogue, which is always easy to understand, is a pretty even mix of English and Spanish. Automatic subtitles appear for sections spoken in Spanish, but the disc also includes optional full-time English SDH and Spanish subtitles for those who might need or want them.
