The synopsis for Blood Father is as follows:
Blood Father has us following John Link, an ex-convict who fights to protect his estranged daughter from the drug cartel that is hunting her down. In this thrilling action film, John must use his connections from his past life and his skills as an ex-criminal to keep him and his daughter alive.
While the trailer may be by-the-numbers in terms of how you expect the narrative of the film to play out overall, the fact it has Mel Gibson in the lead may give extra weight to the material as well as the father/daughter dynamic. The rest of the Blood Father cast includes Erin Moriarty, Diego Luna, William H. Macy and Elisabeth Röhm.
Blood Father is scheduled for cinematic release on the 12th August (US) and the 7th October (UK).
