    After what happened with Mel a few months ago and now that I seen the trailer for this film I thought to myself,has Mel really lost it? I love Mel,from Mad Max to Braveheart etc. It's sad mybe he's turning into a mean old man.

      Jodie Foster also directed Little Man Tate and one of my all time fav holliday movies, Home for the Hollidays. So that would make this her 3rd feature film right? Hey if it happend in the 90's it didnt happen!

      Thank God for that

            I'm not going to lie, this looks terrible.

            However, I'm in the minority who actually want to see Mel Gibson return to films....so that he can finally direct that badass Viking Movie he has been wanting to make for so long.

            Therefore, even though this movie looks like sh*t, I actually hope it does well so that he might actually have a shot at making that film.

            Do you know how amazing a Viking movie, directed by the guy that did Braveheart, would be???? Holy hell, I get chills just thinking about it.

              Looks fun.

              And Gibson is nowhere near Sheen in narcissistic infamy, and Sheen's nowhere near Gibson in talent. I'd separate those two names.

                  @zanyzap Yeah, that would have been sweet and violent, akin to his Apocalypto, I'm sure.

                      I believe @narrator had an avatar once that said: Haters Gonna Hate. Mel may not have the best social life (yeah, I know... understatement), but he's an excellent actor and to swear off an actor because he's made a few wrong choices and presented himself poorly is ridiculous. Although it sucks... if I remember correctly a project with Leo DiCaprio about vikings was shelved because of his antics. That would have been awesome.
