Blood Father (2016) – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Okay so I love Mel Gibson films.  There I said it.  It may not be a popular opinion but Gibson is always good value on screen.   A few years ago ‘How I spent My Summer Vacation’ was a massive return to form for the once highly coveted Gibson.  No-one saw it and the critics were predictably snippy but after years in the shadows it was a welcome return.   He follows did up with a few supporting or lead bad guy roles but that return to lead actor status alluded him.  Blood Father continues to build on that earlier success and whilst not quite as impactful as Vacation, it’s still a bloody good film with a sterling central performance from Gibson who continues to prove once again with the right material (and personal baggage aside) he has a hell of a lot to offer Hollywood.

Best Bit: Gibson
