This week, get the topsy-turvy ride with latest Hollywood release "Gringo". The comedic thriller with David Oyelowo, Joel Edgerton, and Charlize Theron as lead characters unravels its layers of story, with violent moments of eye-opening nastiness, and the interest resides in black world of drug lords having no feeling of compunction. It is largely a fun watch, a corporate crime tale of consistent tanginess enacted by an outstanding cast.
The film is directed by Brother Nash Edgerton (helming his second feature, after 2008’s "The Square").
The story unfolds as Oyelowo (the title character), Harold, who has a mid-level job at a Chicago pharma company and whose co-president is supposed best friend, Richard (Edgerton), both are college friends. It starts as Harold’s accountant Stu (Bashir Salahuddin, impactful in a brief role) warns his client and buddy that the rug is about to be pulled out from under Harold, corporate-wise. Harold confronts Richard, who responds with a ridiculous pseudo-parable about carrots and bananas. Richard and the company’s co-president Elaine (Theron), a relentless climber with ice-water for blood who not only has no compunction about flaunting her secondary sexual characteristics for career gain but may in fact have no idea what the word "compunction" even means, join Harold for one of his periodic jaunts to Mexico, where the company has a plant.
That plant makes marijuana in a pill form. As you can imagine, it is a much envied formula, and concurrent with Harold and company’s trip, a guitar-shop semi-loser (Harry Treadaway), with his aptly-named girlfriend Sunny (Seyfried) in tow but not aware of what’s happening, is down in Mexico City to try and steal it.
As it happens, Harold’s accountant is not just right; he’s only got a part of the big bad picture. Richard and Elaine have been offloading a portion of their inventory to a Mexican drug cartel to raise much need cash. Now that they’ve found a partner for a merger, they want that stopped. Their Mexican plant manager, Sanchez (Hernán Mendoza) explains that the "Black Panther," the head of the cartel, is not someone you just cut off like that. Richard and Elaine are less than sympathetic.
Sanchez goes to the Panther, who quizzes him on what the best Beatles album is before getting down to business. The business does not go well. As for Harold, whose thumb happens to be the only one that can open the plant vault that contains the formula for the wonder drug, once he figures out the extent to which he’s being played for a stooge, he decides to turn the tables. This, initially, does not go well.
