Ex-con Link (Mel Gibson) lives quit sober somewhere in the desert. He reunites his daughter that is chased by drug dealers who want to kill her. Link sets on a mission to save his daughter.
I really missed Mel, for a while I thought he will never work again in Hollywood. After Robert Rodriguez´s Machete Kills and Sylvester Stallone´s Expendables 3, I got hope that Mel will work again in high profile movies.
Mel Gibsons Blood father delivers good action and exciting story. Mel Gibson is back and he is on top of his game. He looks young and he still has that charisma and charm. I was happy seeing him kicking ass.
No matter what you think of him, he has talent in front of the camera and behind it. Mel Gibson always gives awesome performances. I saw Mad Max 2. The Road Warrior and Lethal Weapon movies when I was a kid, those movies made an impact on me. Those are memorable eternal characters.
Mel Gibson is perfect as an ex-con who gets a second chance with his daughter and together they rebuild their relationship.This is last chance at redemption and having some kind of meaning to his life. Mel was perfect playing this role.
The cinematography is fantastic, movies were shot on beautiful desert scenery it just reminds us of Mad Max.
William H Macy plays Mel´s AA sponsor and Michael Parks makes an appearance also.
The film is never boring, it is an exciting ride from start to finish. I love good action thriller films like this. I m happy this turned out so good. Mel Gibson´s story is not over yet, he has some rounds left.
