Mel Gibson returns to the big screen in this edge-of-your-seat action thriller!

Scripted by Straight Outta Compton‘s Andrea Berloff and The Town‘s Peter Craig (and based on his novel), and directed by Jean-François Richet, the award-winning French director behind the acclaimed Mesrine films, Blood Father is a gripping action thriller with shades of Sicario and Payback.

Action and attitude meet humour and humility as Gibson stars as John Link, an ex-con trying (none too enthusiastically) to embrace life on the straight and narrow.

Eking out a meagre existence as a tattoo artist in his trailer park home, he battles with his past and his future.


When his estranged daughter Lydia is caught up in a drug deal gone wrong, she finds herself reaching out to the last man she ever thought she’d need — her father. Only he can protect her from those who want her dead, and only he will — no matter what it may cost him.
