Cops are shooting black people. Cops are getting shot by snipers, and Donald Trump is stoking racism, bigotry and anti-Semitism. Naturally, what this toxic environment needs is Mel Gibson making his first earnest attempt at a comeback since The Beaver five years ago with Blood Father, a pulpier version of Taken set in a nearly post-apocalyptic desert.
