"Lost Souls: on the road with Blood Father" featurette
Despite what you think of Mill Gibson this was a vehicle tailor-made for him. The plot remind you of those classic 80s and 90s action thrillers with a budget and style but it's a little bit more art house. Solid through and through and highly recommend
I would recommend this to a friend

Owned for 2 months when reviewed.
This movie should of came out on the Big Screen!! Awesome Actors!! And PERFECT Storyline! Mel Gibson is a Recovering addict/tattoo artist and father to a runaway daughter. After some years he receives a phone call from his daughter requesting money as she is in trouble for killing her ex boyfriend who happened to be a cartel and now is fleeing from hitmen seeking revenge! While on the run they encounter hitman and make new enemies... along the way! this movie didn't disappoint me, it has lots of action and violence which will keep you entertained
Blood Father' doesn't break any new ground in its genre, but it is nice to see Mel Gibson in a solid, character-driven movie again. The film may have not gotten enough publicity or attention to be considered a 'comeback' for the actor, but it's certainly a step in the right direction. While this title isn't quite good enough to recommend for purchase, it's definitely worth a look.
