It seems that Mel Gibson, who hasn’t acted in a movie in seven years, couldn’t be bothered to perfect his Boston accent. Not that I’m complaining, because it’s a mercurial thing, the boston accent, something most native Bostonians spend a lifetime running away from. Well, the educated anyways.
This thriller, where Gibson sees his daughter murdered on the steps of his home and that MacGuffin leads to shady corporate coverups, looks like standard material. But I’m interested!
Martin Campbell (Goldeneye, Casino Royale) directs the movie, which is a remake of the very highly regarded UK mini-series from 1985 — also directed by Martin Campbell.
