Reviews:
4 stars out of 5 -- "As comeback projects go, BLOOD FATHER is stellar....The actor completely tears into the role of Link, a battered and disgruntled ex-con." - 05/21/2016 The Guardian


"The fact is that Gibson is still a terrifically charismatic presence who inhabits damaged, self-destructive rascals, perhaps because that’s how he wants to be seen." -- Grade: B- - 08/11/2016 A.V. Club


3 stars out of 4 -- "BLOOD FATHER, directed by Jean-François Richet, is an efficient and pleasurable bad-man-tries-to-go-good exposition that gives Gibson ample opportunity to flex his now-somewhat-grizzled movie-star muscle." - 08/12/2016 RogerEbert.com


"[T]he movie’s a small gem: a good old-fashioned chase picture, thickened with pulp." - 08/11/2016 Los Angeles Times


"It’s an ideal role for the actor, and he’s well balanced by Moriarty’s occasionally sulky, but usually spirited Lydia....Their fractured relationship is given room to breathe with several heart-to-heart conversations..." - 10/03/2016 Empire
