Mel Gibson’s rage and devil-may-care attitude come to bear in Blood Father.
I could honestly watch him all day in this kind of form. His muscles, awesome beard and abundance of charisma are on full display. Blood Father may be a relatively straight-forward vehicle to showcase his talent but it also pleasingly punches above its weight with well developed emotional heft.
Clearly he’s going for broke so it’s a good thing his intensity is matched by the story and direction. It’s violent, no-nonsense and entertaining.
When his ex-con and alcoholic character apologises for his past, is Mel publicly apologising too?
