'Some days I want to say hello with a blow torch'
Link [Mel Gibson] has turned his life around. A Vietnam Vet., ex-con on parole and a reformed alcoholic living in a sleazy caravan doing occasional tattoos is nowhere near the fast lane of action he is used to and is bored to snores. His parole officer [William H. Macy] is his only companion.
The phone rings and his lost daughter [Erin Moriarty] of 14 years is on the line desperate for help. She is a naive 16-year-old from a comfortable home [well, three step fathers and a good education] who has run away from all that luxury and become a gangster's moll to a Mexican drug lord [Diego Luna]. She accidently shoots him and is being chased by his seriously bad guys who are trying to kill her.
Link 'Summer school'
Only Mel Gibson can change a B grade movie into one for Oscar contention, but I doubt Hollywood will be favourable in this case. His private life has nothing to do with his acting skills, but that's the good old U.S.A.
By now dear reader you may have gathered I am a fan of this fine actor and recommend this film with mucho gusto.
