‘As much as it’s a bullet-laden b-movie glory run, this is Mel Gibson’s show. His intimidating, fearless, tongue in cheek and perfect timed turn that acts both as a return to form and a catharsis from the past is intoxicating viewing. Blood Father is a rip-roaring, body count heavy, bitingly satirical, shady character populated, hella good time!‘ – Aaron Rowlands, The Lowdown Under
‘Director Jean-François Richet keeps the action set pieces and shootouts coming with bracing regularity, but Blood Father doesn’t grind to a halt while it’s catching a breath, thanks to the spot-on screenplay.’ – Alfonso Duralde, The Wrap
‘”Blood Father” is trash, but it does capture what an accomplished and winning actor Mel Gibson can be.’ – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

Synopsis: Mel Gibson returns to the big screen with shades of Sicario and Payback in this edge-of-your-seat action thriller. Scripted by Straight Outta Compton’s Andrea Berloff and The Town’s Peter Craig (based on his novel), BLOOD FATHER is brought to the screen by the team behind The Prophet and Rust & Bone and helmed by the César-winning French director Jean-Francois Richet, the man behind the acclaimed Mesrine films.
Action and attitude meets humour and humility as Gibson stars as John Link – an ex-con trying – none too enthusiastically – to embrace life on the straight and narrow. Eking out a meagre existence as a tattoo artist in his trailer park home, he battles with his past and his future. When his estranged daughter, Lydia is caught up in a drug deal gone wrong, she finds herself reaching out to the last man she ever thought she’d need – her father. Only he can protect her from those who want her dead, and only he will – no matter what it may cost him.
