Mel Gibson is back, and he’s ready to kick some ass.

To celebrate the release of the thriller Blood Father, in cinemas September 1, Icon Films Australia has handed us 5 double passes and 10 Buy One Get One Free passes to give away!

Gibson returns to the screen as an ex-con out to protect his estranged daughter from the drug dealers who want her dead. Seriously, as if you need more than that to get excited at the prospect of seeing Gibson in take-no-prisoners mode.

Blood Father, also starring Erin Moriarty, Diego Luna, Michael Parks and William H. Macy, hits Aussie screens on September 1.

Mel Gibson returns to the big screen with shades of Sicario and Payback in this edge-of-your-seat action thriller. Scripted by Straight Outta Compton’s Andrea Berloff and The Town’s Peter Craig (based on his novel), BLOOD FATHER is brought to the screen by the team behind The Prophet and Rust & Bone and helmed by the César-winning French director behind the acclaimed Mesrine films.

Action and attitude meets humour and humility as Gibson stars as John Link – an ex-con trying – none too enthusiastically – to embrace life on the straight and narrow. Eking out a meagre existence as a tattoo artist in his trailer park home, he battles with his past and his future. When his estranged daughter, Lydia is caught up in a drug deal gone wrong, she finds herself reaching out to the last man she ever thought she’d need – her father. Only he can protect her from those who want her dead, and only he will – no matter what it may cost him.
