Get the Gringo

"Put it back."

A criminal (Mel Gibson) and a 9-year-old boy (Kevin Hernandez), together makes a perfect duo in surviving a Mexican prison.

Get the Gringo is a clean action-drama film, or should I say an "at least not boring" film. I really love the music and the editing! A dramatic, while at the same time, thrilling feel made this movie watchable.
Kevin Hernandez (the kid) was awesome. Liked him the moment he entered the frame.
The story, however, for me is slow-phased. Though I appreciate and it is good that they spent much time on establishing the setting because for some audience like me, I am not familiar to the kind of prison setup the movie used. ***SPOILER ALERT*** I also questioned the latter part, where in the middle of a raid, there is an on-going transplant, and Mel Gibson said to the doctor "put it back!" I was like, "really?" I mean, it could be possible to detach and attach some body organs but... okay, maybe I just don't appreciate how it was presented.
