Review: How I Spent My Summer Vacation
A career criminal (Gibson) nabbed by Mexican authorities is placed in a tough prison where he learns to survive with the help of a 9-year-old boy.
Funny enough this movie was named “Get The Gringo” in the US which I think is much better then the long “How I Spent My Summer Vacation” I didn’t have a clue what this movie was about except that Mel Gibson was in it. I saw a short preview and didn’t know what to expect, but I was surprised, this movie turned out to be really good. I know that Mel Gibson was shunned by Hollywood for going a bit nuts but he is still one bad ass in the movies, and he did a fantastic job with this character. In jail he has the perfect facial expressions for funny moments in a stressful situations, the guy pulled it off and this movie just proves that he is still a damn good actor. Plus the plot in this movie is unpredictable, and it gives you an insight in the Mexican prison system.
