The movie belongs to Mel Gibson who portrays a former convict and alcoholic who is trying to keep it together. The last time I saw Mel Gibson in Expendables 3 and I liked him portraying the gray shaded Stonebanks. Gibson is back with a bang this time. He delivers a great flawless performance. The movie is about John Link (Mel Gibson) who runs a tattoo parlor out of his trailer and tries to live a simple life until his estranged teenage daughter Lydia (Erin Moriarty) comes back into his life but with a secret. The things turn ugly when Link finds out that the drug cartel is hunting her down. The movie is based on this father-daughter relationship. The father who is trying to clean up his life meets his estranged teenage daughter in this unusual circumstances. There stands a father who is saving his daughter from all trouble. The movie is predictable and it’s the Gibson’s hardcore performance that elevates the movie. He looks great in the beard and in the action sequences. The movie is low budgeted so do not expect extraordinary stunts. The movie is more of drama and there is action in between. All the characters in this movie are strong. The pace of the movies dips a little in the second half with all the preaching scenes and where Gibson meets his old friends. But then again the movie picks up its pace. Gibson is awesome throughout the movie, especially when he gets angry (Mad Max). There are some good scenes with Kirby (William H. Marcy) who plays Gibson’s buddy and mentor. The camera work is good gazing through Gibson’s eye showing character’s depth. The movie is a must-watch for the fans of Mel Gibson. It’s great to see him back again in this action drama movie. The movie is directed by Jean-François Richet who has done a great job. The movie reminds of Liam Nesson’s character in “Taken” franchise. This could be the comeback movie of Mel Gibson.
