Gibson and His War on Mediocrity

War movies have always been a staple for fans of both violence and drama. The depictions of heroism and courage often portrayed in these movies help us as viewers to understand how war can be a terrible yet powerful tool to inform us on the decisions that are made and how it can influence the future. This is the case for the upcoming movie Destroyer, a WW2 film set during the Battle of Okinawa and directed by long time fan favorite Mel Gibson. Gibson is better known for his past films Hacksaw Ridge, Braveheart, We Were Soldiers, as well as other pieces of historical fiction.

While Gibson has been working on increasing his presence as an actor after a period of hiatus, he has decided to return to Hollywood in order to work on his directorial filming as well. As outlined on Screenrant (https://screenrant.com/mel-gibson-destroyer-director/), The upcoming film is said to star Gibson’s own long term girlfriend Rosalind Ross and will undoubtedly be another masterpiece to add to Mel Gibson’s already impressive directorial resume. If the film is going to be anything like what we saw with Hacksaw Ridge, a movie about a pacifist during the war in the Pacific, then we as moviegoers are in for a treat.

It is not yet known when Destroyer will be released. Cast information, as well as the more detailed forms of information, are still cloudy. What we know is that Mel Gibson has shocked us before with his work and will again.
