Blood Father (2016)

blood-father“I don’t wanna say too much because you see my boyfriend wanted us to get married so I wouldn’t be able to testify against him in court.” – Lydia

Number of Times Seen – 1 (25 Oct 2016)

Brief Synopsis – A reformed criminal must rely on his skills to help save his estranged daughter who is being hunted by the drug cartel after she steals from her dealer boyfriend.

My Take on it – Back in the 80’s and 90’s, Mel Gibson was a hot commodity in Hollywood and he made some amazing films as both an actor and as a director.

Things just keep going downhill from there.

I had a glimmer of hope that maybe this film would be his new breakout performance that would set him once again on the right path, but alas, this movie is pretty terrible.

The plot just drags on and on and doesn’t really go anywhere the whole time.

There are so many holes in the script, it looks like a piece of Swiss cheese and so much just didn’t make any sense at all.

The best part of this film was the very talented William H. Macy in a supporting role, but even his talent gets wasted here by even being in this film.

Just skip it!

Bottom Line – Was hoping Gibson had found a way to redeem himself with this film but not by a longshot. The plot drags on and so much just makes no sense. A waste of the talented William H. Macy who is the only redeemable aspect of this film.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In 2008 Sylvester Stallone was planning to direct and star in an adaptation of Peter Craig’s novel Blood Father. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy
