This is the movie that used to be called 'How I Spent My Summer Vacation".

Oddly enough, it's not being released theatrically here in the States (however, it gets a theatrical release in Australia). Rather, it's going straight to video on demand starting May 1. A few promotional theatrical screenings will be held leading up to that date, one of which will be held in Austin, TX. It will feature a Q&A with Mel presided over by Harry Knowles, founder of Aint It Cool News. Story at the link.

Had a good laugh with the trailer. I sure want to see this movie. Typical Gibson humor.

I just watched it on DVD at home. It is a damn good movie with the typical Gibson humor. This absolutely reminds me of Air America and Payback. This is the real Mel Gibson acting an humor.

He is a great actor, and if he got himself into shape he could do MM4 - a proper MM4 not some fricking happy feet CGI'd waterworld version (mustnt grumble...).

I couldnt give a bugger about his views on anything - i look at the art, not the artist.

tightest sharpest film ive seen this year ... the raid a close second sadly let down by a few too many stock martial arts scenes ... get the gringo/summer vacation was flawless unpretentious cinema

Isn't that the sign you are done for (as an actor)?
