**An ex-con back on his feet for his daughter!**
I did not find this French film any special. This is an English language film, because they have targeted the American market. Many similar Hollywood flicks were already made, so it is just a different actors and the locations. But the actings were good and some of the scenes were nicely composed. This is a book based film about an ex- con, when he comes to know his daughter is in a real trouble, he does everything he can to protect her. So it is like a running and chasing kind of theme, but how they come out it is the remaining film.
Mel Gibson was great. I felt like I haven’t seen him for ages, I mean this kind of performance gives the impression that he’s back. Though the film was not that great, for an entertainment it will do okay. It is a short film than usual action-thrillers. So you won’t have trouble in pace, no proper developments, like the characters or the story, it only moves forward so quickly. I think the end was good, only if they are not planning for a sequel. But that part was not clear, so there’s no surprise if they make another film. I say watch it for Gibson and for entertainment.
Classic story with good guy (well, good might be stretching it), in this case the father, trying to save chick from the bad guys. The bad guys are of course totally dislikeable murderous thugs with a distinctly below average intelligence.
Mel Gibson plays the role of ex-con, caring father and kick-ass protector of his daughter quite well. He pretty much makes this movie which is a roller-coaster action ride. As with most of this type of action flicks the story and script is fairly mediocre. His old and not very trustworthy friend for example was not really adding any value and his actions was soooo predictable.
The thugs, although certainly projecting the required amount of “despicable bad-guy-ness”, were really nothing more than that. Stupid, stupid and more stupid. How they even manage to track John and Lydia down all the time is really beyond me.
With that said it was a enjoyable movie. The one were you just relax in the sofa, watch the scenery and arses being kicked. The stuff that Mel Gibson is really good at.
The good old Mel !
I expected it to be a Mel Gibson driven movie with a simple story.
I also knew the director Richet is known for the qualities of his Mesrine Biopic, but still didn’t await the same genre.
Blood Father is not a very serious movie trying to reflect reality to the bone, but an old school action movie with a fresh tight rhythm. Funny dialogues/moments and good performances from quite every actor. No waste of time here (maybe a bit too fast, especially the ending)
I loved it because it was entertaining from start to finish. Some would say it’s an overly simplistic rehash of a story we’ve seen a hundred times. They wouldn’t be far from the truth, but the film still is engaging if you let go of your High Concept expectations.
It respects its viewer in a way that makes me feel bad for liking these soulless blockbusters we’re being fed these days.
The funny thing is that the movie deliberately reflects Mel’s filmography and personal story in different ways without pushing it too far.
I went to see Mel Gibson again, and boy I did!
I need more Mel, g*ddammit!
Autistic Reviewers Opinion Of This Movie.
“An ex-con reunites with his estranged wayward 16-year old daughter to protect her from drug dealers who are trying to kill her.” Honestly, Mel Gibson steals the show in playing Link, a man who’s had a huge history of making mistakes and became an alcoholic. Mel Gibson just keeps on proving more and more that he’s not only a great actor, but a total badass! Erin Moriarty who plays Lydia (the daughter) is also really good She comes across as annoying, but I think that’s kind of the point. We see a huge change in her character as the film progresses. William H. Macy was also really good in this role, and to be honest there needed to be more done with him. Same with Diego Luna. He plays a great villain, but with very little screen time.
While the movie focuses more on the drama side of things, the movie does have its great moments of suspense and action. The whole movie felt like it had a 90’s feel to it, and not a bad thing! All in all, is worth your money and worth seeing Gibson in action..yet again. Let’s forgive Mel for what he did in the past and let him be the greatest actor that ever lived! 4/5 stars, 8/10.
