3 August 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Both Mel Gibson and Sean Penn broke out big in the summer of 1982. Gibson soared as a haunted loner in action thriller The Road Warrior and Penn stood out as a stoned high school student in the goofy comedy Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Blood Father sees Gibson as John Link, an ex-con who works as a tattoo artist out of his trailer on the outskirts of an American desert. His teenage daughter’s been missing, but when she suddenly reappears it’s with trouble on her tail in the form of drug dealers who want her dead. We »
