Lionsgate has just released a cool new TV spot for Mel Gibson's first big-screen actioner since the very unseen Get the Gringo long time Blood Father! The new spot perfectly explains everything you need to know about this new 80s/90s throwback action thriller. A genre that Gibson himself mastered in the earlier part of his career with Mad Max and the Lethal Weapon franchises. The film hits theaters and VOD next week, I for one am extremely excited for this one. Seeing Gibson return to his roots and kick some ass again on his road to a comeback will be pretty sweet. Don't forget he will be on the other side of the camera this Fall in his epic awards contender Hacksaw Ridge. Check out the short TV spot below and sound off in the comments section with your thoughts. Are you going to check out this film next weekend? Why or why not?
