Autistic Reviewers Opinion Of This Movie.
26 August 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

"An ex-con reunites with his estranged wayward 16-year old daughter to protect her from drug dealers who are trying to kill her." Honestly, Mel Gibson steals the show in playing Link, a man who's had a huge history of making mistakes and became an alcoholic. Mel Gibson just keeps on proving more and more that he's not only a great actor, but a total badass! Erin Moriarty who plays Lydia (the daughter) is also really good She comes across as annoying, but I think that's kind of the point. We see a huge change in her character as the film progresses. William H. Macy was also really good in this role, and to be honest there needed to be more done with him. Same with Diego Luna. He plays a great villain, but with very little screen time.

While the movie focuses more on the drama side of things, the movie does have its great moments of suspense and action. The whole movie felt like it had a 90's feel to it, and not a bad thing! All in all, is worth your money and worth seeing Gibson in action..yet again. Let's forgive Mel for what he did in the past and let him be the greatest actor that ever lived! 4/5 stars, 8/10. The Autistic Reviewers.
