      There are movies that are so good that I could watch them a second time. There are movies that I could watch a hundred times, like Sicario. Blood Father is a, for me, a one or twice movie. It is good. Maybe even very good. Not jaw dropping, but compelling. I was surprised at Mel Gibson's range of acting here, and the interaction between Mel and the daughter is quite good. Some good action as well. It's not a full on revenge action movie, but in part. The settings are good. As a side note I played an FBI agent in the background of a few scenes, as a background actor, so I got to see Mel. This was in New Mexico where it was shot. So, a solid B grade movie. The plot is Mel gets his daughter who struggles work addiction and theiving back from some bad gangster types, and they reunite and we see what a good guy the father is. No regrets with this one, but not OMG level, more like, 'hey, that was surprisingly good.'

      This is one of Mel Gibson's best pictures. Despite Hollywood and its petty hypocritical judgment of him, Mel is still one of the best actors of this or any other age. I'm so glad Blood Father was offered to stream. I feel privileged when I get to see work of this caliber. Oh, sorry. I got a bit carried away. Here's my take on why you should watch this movie. There's anger and resentment seething just beneath the skin of Mel's character at the loss of not only years with his child, but most of his life either behind bars or prisoner of the bottle. Then his long lost daughter is delivered up to him due to fate and circumstance. One thing's for sure. In what comes next he more than makes up for time lost, proving his undying love for his child. See this movie. At it's end remember this single statement. It's not real love unless you're prepared to die for it.

      If you're a Mel Gibson fan, then get this movie. Can't say I'm a fan of his personal life and what happened in the news, but as far as his movie making ability I'm all in. His acting is perfect for this role. Story is pretty good, chemistry between actors is good, and the action is worth the money I paid for the DVD. Not wall to wall action, but the father daughter relationship and acting between the action scenes more then keep the movie going. While this may not be the best choice for your average movie watcher, any and all Mel Gibson fans and plain old angry action movie fans this one is totally worth your time. I rated this 5 stars because I personally loved it.

      Going into this movie, I wasn't expecting much. No advertising for this, I only heard about it from a reviewer. Seeing it though I came out smiling. This movie is in no way a happy movie, it's quite dark and Mel Gibsons performance is crazy, actually quite literally crazy. His character is a recovering addict and convict and he's trying to work towards a better life, then someone shows up and forces him to go down that dark road again and to see Gibson crack is both scary and a little heartbreaking.

      Mel Gibson's latest movie project brings plenty of action and drama to Blood Father. It was also great to see Mel Gibson's humor shine through in his character. I forgot just how funny he can be! This movie really is a keeper; however, I rated it four stars because the story line wasn't exactly unique, but still, all the same, it was a great movie with the perfect balance of action/drama with awesome comedy mixed in!! If you're a fan of Mel Gibson's or even if you're not, this is still a must-see in my opinion!!

      I was happily surprised by this film. I saw the trailer and thought it would be good but it was more than that. It was a good story well told. A story of the power of a Father's love for his child and the redeeming value that can bring in the end. The performances are excellent and the production is top notch. Not a huge hit but it should have been. The violence is sudden and brutal and carries a weight that is unusual in this type of movie. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

      This is a movie similar to Taken but not in the exact same way. This movie is gritty and at times unrealistic. Mel is an excon trying to stay straight with the law until his estranged daughter shows up. This is a good thing and a bad thing for dad. It all seems to sort of work out with the help of a strong supporting cast. Blood Father will remind you of his work in his Lethal Weapon action adventure film series. I liked it.

      It's impossible to imagine anyone else but Mel Gibson portraying John Link, but the same applies to every project he has taken on throughout his career. The film reaffirms his status as one of the best in the industry, and moreover balances action with a compelling story of a father resorting to all lengths in order to protect his child. I highly recommend both the film adaptation and the novel from Peter Craig.
