Blood Father

A Father Makes His Own Justice


Blood Father
Mel is back in the saddle, doing what he does best. After her drug kingpin boyfriend frames her for stealing a fortune in cartel cash, a 16 year old girl goes on the run, with only one ally in this whole wide world: her perennial screw-up of a dad. He’s been a drunk, a drug addict, a motorcycle outlaw, and a convict in his time, but now is determined to keep his little girl from harm and, for once in his life, do the right thing.

Tomatometer quote iconBlood Father meets every expectation a film fan could have for a latter-day Mel Gibson action thriller with its title -- and even, in some respects, handily exceeds them.
