Mel gets back to the thrillers - On the line (2022) - Review

A host takes a call, where an unknown person threatens to kill the showman's entire family on air. To save loved ones, the radio host will have to play a survival game and the only way to win is to find out the identity of the criminal.

Mel Gibson is back protecting his family in a thriller about a radio shock jock that has a madman threatening his family while on the air. Mel has a natural charisma on screen that I can't seem to avoid. His personal off-screen rehabilitation continues, but he seems to have gotten back to his on-screen form. Each movie he stars in since his fall gets a little closer to him climbing back into the blockbuster roles he used to star in. This one you can see he had fun with. Playing a narcist role, in a character that nobody like, seems to fit with where he is right now. It's worth a ninety-minute distraction from your life if you have not scratched him off your actor list. Let me know if the twist at the end was transparent as it seemed to me.

Ranking 7/10
