Pathetic attempt at discrediting Mel Gibson
9 July 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

It's no secret that Britain hates Mel Gibson: financially most of his biggest films have bombed over here (including, not surprisingly, The Patriot and Braveheart, both accused of being "anti-British"), and with the release of "The Passion" Britain is rather uproarious. Europe is very liberal and so there aren't as many supporters of the film. Suddenly, Mel Gibson has gone from anti-Brit to anti-Brit/anti-Semitist/Holocaust denier/Christian fanatic. This documentary cashes in on this trying to provide background to Mel's life - his father's outlandish claims, etc. The problem is that they never actually interview Mel. It's like watching tabloid trash - they say plenty of bad things about him, go into his drinking problems in the '80s, his affairs, and rely on director John Badham as a "close friend" (yeah right) of Mel. Badham is the only guy who has anything good to say about him.

The entire documentary has a propaganda - released strategically during the era of anti-Mel-ness and relying on tabloid trash for "facts." The problem, also, is that the "documentary" is so silly! Comparing Mel to Hitler? Mmm...
