The Mexican  Cover Image DVD DVD

The Mexican / Dreamworks Pictures presents in association with Newmarket ; directed by Gore Verbinski ; written by J.H. Wyman ; produced by Lawrence Bender and John Baldecchi.


Jerry has to do one last errand for the mob before they let him find employment elsewhere--he has to go to Mexico and recover a rare and very valuable pistol "The Mexican", which is said to be cursed. While his girlfriend, Samantha, objects to Jerry taking the assignment, he isn't in much of a position to argue. Once in Mexico, Jerry finds the pistol easily enough, but making his way back to the States proves to be an unexpected challenge. Meanwhile, his mob connection hires Leroy, a hitman, to kidnap Samantha and hold her hostage until Jerry comes back.
