El Gringo is a 2012 American action thriller film directed by Eduardo Rodriguez and written by Jonathan W. Stokes. The film stars Scott Adkins, Petar Bachvarov, and Zachary Baharov in the lead roles. El Gringo tells the story of a man known only as the Man (Scott Adkins), who crosses the border into Mexico with a bag full of cash and a symbolic Bible. The movie follows his journey as he tries to survive a violent and corrupt Mexican town while trying to recover the stolen money.

The movie opens with the Man entering Mexico on foot. He is covered in blood and seems to be in a state of shock. He heads to a local bar where he cleans himself up and tries to find some answers about the town he has just arrived in. The Man discovers that the town is controlled by two rival gangs, the Bledsoe gang, and the Garcia gang. These gangs are at war with each other over control of the town and the drug trade.

The Man has come to town with a specific mission: to retrieve the stolen money from the Bledsoe gang. He had been working for the gang as a courier, but had hidden the money and fled after discovering their true intentions for it. The Bledsoe gang is not happy with the Man's betrayal and has sent a hitman, the Brit (Christian Slater), to kill him and retrieve the money.

The Man's quest for the stolen money brings him into contact with a number of interesting characters, including Anna (Yvette Yates), a barmaid who helps him out, and Jules (Petar Bachvarov), a former soldier who is now working for the Garcia gang. Jules and the Man initially come into conflict with each other, but eventually join forces to take down the Bledsoe gang and retrieve the money.

El Gringo is a gripping and action-packed movie that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. The film features some spectacular fight scenes and shootouts, as well as some impressive stunts. The movie is set in a dusty and rundown Mexican town, which gives it a gritty and authentic feel.

Scott Adkins delivers a solid performance as the Man, who is a tough and resourceful character who is not afraid to get his hands dirty. He is well-supported by the rest of the cast, including Christian Slater, who plays the Brit with a sly and menacing presence.

The film's plot is well-constructed, with plenty of twists and turns to keep the audience guessing. The movie also deals with some deeper themes, such as the corruption and violence that often accompany drug trafficking in Mexico.

Overall, El Gringo is a thrilling and entertaining movie that is sure to satisfy fans of action and thriller genres.
