Release Date: 11 January 2017
Starring: Mel Gibson, Erin Moriarty, Diego Luna
Imagine taking both Riggs and Murtaugh from the Lethal Weapon movies and rolling them into one character. That basically sums up John Link (Mel Gibson) in this thrill-a-minute action blast. Link’s an ex-con, keeping his head down, living in a trailer and inking tatts to scrape by. His head’s soon to pop up in a big way, however, when he gets a desperate call from his estranged daughter, Lydia (Erin Moriarty). She’s been hanging with some bad dudes, has crossed them, and they’re not going to let it slide. It’s time for daddy and daughter to hit the road, but even old allies think twice about helping them out. With kinetic direction from Jean-François Richet (Assault on Precinct 13), and some fine screen time from William H. Macy, Mad Mel is definitely back.
