How I Spent My Summer Vacation
80′s Aussie action star Mel Gibson is back in ‘How I Spent My Summer Vacation’. It feels a bit strange that when Mel Gibson’s public persona and popularity is at an all time low he seems to be making some great films. Take ‘Apocalypto’, this was released 6 years ago when we learned that he was a loathsome bigot and just before the cinema release of How I Spent My Summer Vacation, Gibson was relationship with his girlfriend was bought to the attention after a series of abusive telephone messages were made public.
How I Spent My Summer Vacation is a un-PC caper-thriller which sees Gibson as a bank robber who makes it across the border into Mexico with millions of dollars. He is picked up by two corrupt Federales who make off with his loot and manage to throw Gibson into jail without a trial, but Gibson has a plan to escape and get his money back.
