Blood Father Regie Jean-François Richet
The movie strikes just the right balance, tough but self-aware – and blessed with a sense of humour, right from the opening moments when Lydia buys cartons of bullets for Jonah and his gang (the clerk doesn’t bat an eye) but isn’t allowed to buy cigarettes without an ID. Gibson is the main attraction here, effortlessly shifting to movie-star mode when John briefly acts like a real dad.

Aided immensely by Benoît Debie’s smoothly glossy cinematography, Gibson’s previous star vehicle, 2012’s Get the Gringo, leveraged his mania for guilty-pleasure entertainment. But Jean-François Richet’s film is a far more slapdash effort, essentially consisting of a series of set pieces in which, after some preliminary narrative-development throat-clearing, one cheap set after another is destroyed.

Mr. Gibson makes a persuasive derelict John Wayne with a loose, energetic performance, finely tuned comic timing and an amused, self-aware Lethal Weapon glint. As the guns come out, that glint grows harder and Mr. Gibson’s body almost seems to as well, as if he were developing muscle as needed. It’s such a strong performance that in moments, despite Mr. Richet’s attention to detail — the shiny chrome, the desperados, the pretty sun-kissed color — the movie all but fades, leaving only Mr. Gibson.
