    Release Date:

    `The Mexican` is an explosive adventure set south of the American border. Hapless mob stooge Jerry (Brad Pitt) has been forced to work for his current employers after accidentally getting mob boss Margoles (Gene Hackman) arrested. Now Margoles is due for release and Jerry is free after one last job - a trip to Mexico to retrieve a priceless antique gun known as `The Mexican`.
    Jerry`s girlfriend Samantha (Julia Roberts) has had enough of her boyfriend`s lifestyle, and decides to start a new life for herself in Las Vegas. Unfortunately for Samantha, the mob have no intention of letting Jerry fail this time and so they send gay hitman Leroy (James Gandolfini) to take Samantha hostage, giving Jerry an extra incentive to succeed.

    While Jerry competes against other interested parties who will stop at nothing to get the pistol, Samantha swaps advice on men and relationships with the big hearted hitman. With everybody`s interest in retrieving `The Mexican` reaching fever pitch, twists and turns are aplenty, leaving nothing as it seems...
