What It Really Is: A down and dirty journey where everyone’s the bad guy. It reminds us of Gibson’s underrated noir Payback, only this has a bit more color and takes place in Mexico. It’s funny, the violence is intense, and the story, which veers in and out of offensive and irresponsible material, is unrelenting.

Does Blu-ray Make a Difference? Yes. It’s so cleanly and clearly shot your home theater system might catch hepatitis from the grimy locations used in the film.
