Mel Goes Vigilante Cop In “Heart Of Darkness”
Say what you will or about Mel Gibson but no matter what, the guy can flat out carry a movie. The first trailer for Mel’s first starring role in seven years seems like it may have been worth the wait. Sure, it looks like a typical Boston cop thriller…but there’s something about watching Mel Gibson be a loose cannon badass that is sickly appealing to me. Now, if only we could get Mel and Denzel Washington to co-star in an unflinching revenge thriller…no no, it would be too much to handle.
On a side note, this is the movie that Robert DeNiro bailed on after one day of filming. At first, the rumor was it was a dispute with Mel Gibson. Then, the story was that DeNiro quit after a disagreement with the director, Martin Campbell.
