How I spent my summer vacation (Get the Gringo) (2012)

Mel Gibson goes back to the basics in a prison break movie.

Our protag is a wiley career criminal who's managed to keep a clean record for decades. He's in a Mexican jail that's literally run by its inmates. Watch him scheme to get out of jail, save an orphan and a widow, and get precious revenge all at once.

Watch for: well-written carnage and mayhem, crude wit, and double crosses that could belong in 1950s noir. I recommend a download on Netflix.
