Blood Father (2016)

Ever since I was introduced to Riggs from Lethal Weapon I’ve always enjoyed seeing Mel Gibson on the big screen.
 
Blood Father is a story about Link (Mel Gibson). Link is an ex-con who is finally living a clean life after having done hard time in prison. He is also proud to be Alcohol-free, visiting local support groups and earns an honest pay as a tattoo artist while living in his trailer.
 
Link also has a daughter who disappeared on him while he was locked up in prison and is now deemed a missing girl. Link even has wanted posters put up in hopes that one day he may discover the truth about his missing daughter.
 
As it turns out Link’s daughter, Lydia, is alive, but has dealings with drug dealers… until she is challenged to do something she finds uncomfortable. She manages to escape and desperately seeks help from the one man she can count on- her father.
 
Blood Father is dirty, violent, suspenseful, and, my personal favourite thing in a movie- gritty. This film could be described as having the same atmosphere as a “Grindhouse” type of film. While the film does have a short duration I love the fact that this film goes straight to the point with a short introduction to lead characters. The story begins with some surprising action scenes which includes a mixture of gunfire, car crashes and even a bit of fun with motorbikes.
 
Mel Gibson is back better than ever. I loved watching his character fight within himself to try and do what’s right, but also do anything to protect his little girl (as any father does). Gibson’s character also has a dark past which is revealed at key moments. At selected time I laughed when we got to see some the crazy (and sometimes cheeky) side of him his character. Tense moments throughout the film are acted very well.
 
Overall, Blood Father comes recommended. I will provide a word of warning for those that get tired of foul language because there is a serious amount to find here. The actress who plays Link’s daughter I found slightly annoying at selected moments. Regardless of your personal thoughts of the lead actor personally, there is an outstanding performance to be seen and it was refreshing to see.
