Mel Gibson Is Back And Better Than Ever!

I went into this movie completely blind. I did not see a single advertisement for the film, in fact I didn't even know of its existence up until the day before seeing it. I haven't seen Mel Gibson do anything for awhile so the movie definitely caught my interest. I expected it to be a fun B- movie turn your brain off type of thing.

But actually I think that this is one of the better films of the year. It was fast paced, fun, and brutal. The acting was well done all the way around. It was emotional, dramatic, and thrilling. Mel Gibson put on one of his greatest performances, and caught me completely off guard. His character was very fun to watch, reminiscent of Joel from "The Last Of Us". William H. Macy was fantastic as well. I would recommend this movie to anybody who loves any genre. It has a little something for everybody. Really great film and I hope it ends up receiving a lot more recognition than its getting right now. I highly recommend you go see this film, you won't regret it! 10/10

There Will Be Blood

Taken meets Sicario meets Sons of Anarchy in the new action thriller; Blood Father, which reminds us once again why you don't mess with Mel Gibson's family.

Oh Mel Gibson, you amazing, charismatic, volatile, genius, we freaking missed you. It's been 6 years since we had a good reason to be excited about a Mel Gibson movie and he's back with a bang and more than a few growls in Blood Father. Watching this film I found myself with a big smile on my face and saying things like "Hell yeah", "that's right", and "let's go" throughout the duration of this incredibly enjoyable action thrill ride. Mel plays a formerly violent ex convict trying to live a quiet life as a tattoo artist when he is dragged into a war with a violent gang in order to protect his estranged daughter (played by Erin Moriarity) who suddenly comes back into his life. All hell breaks loose as Mel and his daughter go on the run through the California desert dodging (and spraying) bullets, gang bangers, Sicarios, and vengeful bikers left and right all while both trying to stay sober.

"Don't worry I'm not dying, I'm just in El Centro" is just one of the many quotable lines from this tense, gritty, violent, and surprisingly funny action thriller from director Jean-Francois Richet. The best part about Blood Father is that it's exactly the film you think it's going to be. If you've seen the trailer you know this movie, and in this case that's not a bad thing. The film never once deviates from its plot and tone over the course of its perfectly taut 88-minute run time. There's no fluff, no unnecessary dialogue or characters, just hard-hitting action and thrills. It's unapologetic in its simple reasoning to have Mel Gibson doing what he does best; playing a father and busting heads. Blood Father is essentially a modern day western with motorcycles instead of horses and Mel absolutely killing it as the not-to-be-messed-with man with a troubled past. His character John Link has done far more bad in his life than good and sees protecting his daughter as the last chance he may ever have to atone for his sins, even if it means doing those bad things again. The world of Blood Father is a world filled with gangs, killers, drugs and criminals, a world that John Link is all to familiar with and not that far removed from. Gibson is at this best in years playing the hardened ex con Link with that same simmering intensity and wild-eyed look that he's been perfecting since Mad Max.

The film contains some gorgeous cinematography reminiscent of old Sergio Leone westerns and more recent desert thrillers like No Country for Old Men. The supporting cast around Gibson and Moriarity is fantastic as well. William H. Macy steals his few scenes as Gibson's sponsor/best friend, Diego Luna is great as the main villain, and Michael Parks is extremely entertaining as a sociopathic ex Nazi and former colleague of Link's. The biggest problem with Blood Father is the extremely limited release the studio slapped it with (no doubt a lingering middle finger to Mel I'm sure). If you can catch it on the big screen you absolutely have to see it but if not definitely watch it on VOD. Blood Father is the kind of lurid, pulpy, vengeance flick that was so popular in the 80's and 90's, which in a summer filled with bloated CGI filled blockbusters is a welcome sight. It's a simple action thriller about a guy with a damaged past just looking for a little redemption. Is it art-imitating life? Possibly, either way it's an awesome time that's not to be missed.

"You Think That the Garden of Eden was in Norway?" (dialog, daughter to dad)

Two things to know going in.

The is a Hollywood "resurrection" role -- when an A-list big-name star disappears for a while and then comes back in a role you might not expect.

(They can be fun. Costner did a few and they were all interesting. In Fargo Season 2 Jean Smart came back playing a grandmother in a crime family -- and aced it. Gibson, formerly the "sexiest man on the planet" according to polls, nails his cranky, old, character is this one.)

Second it is not a A-film. The running time (about 90 mins) is the tip-off. So going into it, you expect something different.

Which is what you get.

It is not really an actioner, even though it stars one of the biggest action stars in the biz. And does have a lot of action in it. It is more of a road movie. And it is just quirky enough to keep interest.

If Gibson is good, Erin Moriarty is a revelation. This is her breakout role. You will be seeing her again soon. The script, which is razor sharp, requires her to have play both young/stupid and smart/strong at the same time. A contradictory role that would be be a challenge for an A-list pro. She takes command of the role and becomes unforgettable by her third scene.

Great fun.
