35. Blood Father

Release Year: 2016

Directed By: Jean-François Richet

Starring: Mel Gibson, Erin Moriarty, William H. Macy, Diego Luna, Thomas Mann, Dale Dickey, Michael Parks, Daniel Moncada, Raoul Trujillo, Richard Cabral, Miguel Sandoval

Release Date: Thursday, March 26

Based on the novel of the same name by Peter Craig, who also penned the script for the film, Mel Gibson stars in Blood Father as John Link, a veteran and ex-convict. John and his daughter, Lydia (Erin Moriarty), resort to going on the run when Lydia’s drug-dealing boyfriend Jonah Pincerna (Diego Luna) and his cartel come after the Link family after Lydia flees a crime scene.

Blood Father comes from director Jean-François Richet, who also directed such films as All About Love, Assault on Precint 13, Mesrine, One Wild Moment and The Emperor of Paris. Upon release, the film earned mostly positive reviews from critics and holds an 89% on Rotten Tomatoes, but it failed to make an impact at the box office. If you’re looking for an action-crime thriller to pass the time, you might want to give Blood Father a shot when it drops on Netflix at the end of March.
