Mel Gibson’s big comeback movie? “Blood Father” will get a small release this Friday, then disappear.
From Cannes, the Hollywood Reporter reviewer said: “A serviceable piece of B-movie entertainment without an ounce of originality.”
Owen Glieberman in Variety conceded it was “trash.”
“Blood Father” so far has three theater locations on Moviefone. One of them is in rural Oklahoma. It’s also opening in Van Nuys, California. Then it goes to VOD.
Gibson thinks he’s staging a Renaissance in Hollywood. Later this fall, “Hacksaw Ridge,” which he directed, will get pushed for awards. Good luck with that. Gibson is a racist, an anti-Semite, and a lot of other bad things. He has not apologized for his comments about Jews or the Holocaust.
Gibson still has a not for profit foundation called the AP Reilly Foundation, with assets of $70 million, that supports his privately built church in Agoura Hills, Malibu. That church, Holy Family, is not part of the archdiocese. They do not believe in the Pope or modern Catholic values. They deny the Holocaust. Mel’s father, Hutton Gibson, is alive somewhere, and has written extensively against the Catholic church and for Neo Nazi publications.
