He is one of the most remarkable actors of our time. He is 1,77 m. high and 58 years old. Born in Peekskill, USA, but eventually raised in New South Wales, Australia. His full name is Mel Columcille Gerard Gibson – one of my favourite actors! I enjoy watching over and over again every single movie in which he participates. Anyway, I have made this list with his best movies according to me. The first movie I can never forget because it was the very first time I saw this great actor!
Number 5: Mad Max
So young and so handsome. Every time I see his face, I remember the cute face from his youth. If you have watched at least three of Mel Gibson’s movies, you must know his most common role is of a person seeking revenge for the murder of a family member. Well, it all started with Mad Max. His wife and son where brutally killed by a group of ruthless criminals.
Number 4: What Women Want
Mel Gibson was the first man on Earth to find the answer of this impossible question. If I have to describe it with just three words, they would be: funny, fresh, original. I really miss watching movies like it nowadays. The filmmakers in Hollywood continue creating insipid, dull productions that can hardly make you laugh after you have already watched a movie like What Women Want. Too bad!
Number 3: The Patriot
You need to watch it! Even if you have already did it, please play it one more time on your 51″ TV set! I will give you one good reasons. You will have the chance to see one more time the beautiful face of Heath Ledger, God rest his soul! It was one of his best roles, too. I really miss this actor…Anyway, The Patriot is about love, friendship, compromises you have to make with yourself in the name of your family. Amazing movie!
Number 2: Maverick
This is a five star adventure comedy with elements of action. You won’t understand what’s is really happening till the very end of the movie. I remember the scene with Mel Gibson pretending to be an Indian so that a Russian toff tries to “kill” him and pay a lot of money for the adventure. Hilarious!!!
Number 1: Braveheart
With five Oscars, this movie is one of the best I have ever watched in my life. Mel Gibson is so good that you can almost literally feel the pain in his heart. Once again, he seeks vengeance for the murder of his beloved wife. In a case you haven’t watched this masterpiece yet, consider yourself a very lucky man! You will experience the gripping story of William Wallace for the very first time!
