    I love Mel Gibson, I don’t care what anybody says. Looking forward to this movie a lot.

    That’s about as clich├ęd a premise as I’ve ever seen (C’mon, is Mel Gibson really playing a character any different from the dozens played by Harrison Ford?), but directed by Martin Campbell? I’ll bite.

    It also looks like Ray Winstone is operating on an unusual level of cool in this film.

    I guess that should be eight years, since the movie comes out next year. Anyway, looks pedestrian. But I’ve never really disliked a Gibson performance (even What Women Want), so I’m looking forward to it.

    Another good script by William Monahan. I wonder if Campbell stuck to it. Whereas Ridley Scott stuck to something else entirely in Body of Lies.

    You can never fail with Mel Gibson going on a revenge spree (Mad Max, Braveheart, The Patriot…etc). This looks pretty intense and I’m just happy to see Mel acting again. It’s been too long.

    Looking forward to it. Never seen a Gibson performance I didn’t enjoy on some level.

    Looks good. Apparently the bad guy turns out to be Mel’s mullet, back for vengeance after years in the wilderness.
