Cannes 2016: 'Blood Father' Review

I have to assume that, eventually, we as a culture will decide to forgive Mel Gibson and welcome him back. Just about every other disgraced celebrity has had his moment of redemption, so it just seems inconceivable that Gibson wouldn't. Well, when it happens, it won't be because of Blood Father, a painfully pedestrian Taken-like action-thriller. I reviewed the film for Screen International.
