Watching this felt like a guilty pleasure. Regardless of what Mel Gibson has done in the past there is no disputing the man can act. Especially when given a vehicle that plays to his strengths. The plot is a perfect fit, an ex con and recovering alcoholic with a violent past, is called upon to protect his estranged daughter who's made some seriously dubious choices of her own. Gritty and occasionally disjointed, the good makes up for any shortcomings.
Excellent first up direction attempt by Ben Affleck and with a solid effort in the lead role by brother Casey. Supported by a stellar cast including the perennially superb Ed Harris. Without giving too much away this deals with the emotions and fallout from child abduction and is set in the grittier boroughs of Boston. Watching it for the first time this movie does not show its age.
