Mel Gibson Takes on Drug Dealers in 'Blood Father'

This might be the most Mel Gibson-y movie he's starred in quite some time. On one level it looks like he's doing his best Liam Neeson in Taken, but Gibson setting off to wipe out a bunch of drug dealers who are trying to kill his daughter seems like something a little more tailor-made for him personally. And hey, I heard after this premiered at Cannes that it was surprisingly pretty good, with critics saying it was easily his best lead role in many years. The question is of course is anybody willing to watch Mel Gibson in a movie these days. It's hard to separate him from the insanity in those leaked tapes, isn't it? Blood Father is coming out August 26th.
