Mel Gibson made a movie where he’s the ‘hero’ during Puerto Rico’s Cat 5 hurricane

Royal wedding

I went into this trailer “cold,” only having seen that there were many Twitter people agitated about this movie already. They had good reason to be agitated: this film looks like white hot trash. The film is called Forces of Nature and it stars Mel Gibson (lol), Emile Hirsch (violent douche), Kate Bosworth (wow) and David Zayas, the only Puerto Rican actor with a speaking role in this trailer. Why is that notable? Because this movie is about crime and a heist… in the middle of the Category 5 Hurricane which left Puerto Rico devastated. Yes, all of the cops in Puerto Rico are white (??) and all of the bad guys are Puerto Rican and the whole thing is Mel Gibson’s fever dream, I’m sure. WHY WAS THIS FILM MADE?

This is only a reminder that David Zayas was the heart and soul of Dexter and he deserved to have a better post-Dexter career. Instead, he’s making sh-tty white supremacist movies with Mel Gibson. Also: was this filmed on an iPhone or something? Why is the quality so sh-tty?

    He’s got stunningly beautiful teeth for an old fella, I’ll give him that… 😁

  5. Jaded says:

    He and Tom Cruise are cut from the same cloth – delusional super-hero wannabes who pit themselves against the forces of evil and come out barely scathed. I bet they both sleep in super-hero jammies.

    HA! Almost same title as Sandra Bullock and Ben Affleck movie.

    He looks like sh*t, so that’s some consolation.

    WTH…

  11. Mia4s says:

    Wow, two violent douches for the price of one! (Seriously f**k Emile Hirsch)

    Kate Bosworth. Oh dear. She was a thing for a minute there wasn’t she? I just had a quick look at her IMDB. Uhhhh….well, at least she’s working I guess.

  12. Nikki* says:

    I also hate the scene where he shows all his weapon stash; just what the far right is idolizing now.

  13. JCW says:

    Worked with Hirsch years ago, he is not well liked on film sets. When he filmed Taking Woodstock he made himself so unpopular that when it came time for him to film to film a scene in the mud, the crew mixed cow shit into it. While I personally didn’t experience anything unpleasant with him, he’s certainly gone on to earn himself a really shitty reputation and it’s hurt his career.

    I hope his girlfriend is ok 😬

    Yikes.

  16. Maryscott O'Connor says:

    David Zayas deserves to have top billing over the likes of Mel Gibson in ANY movie.

    It’s shameful he doesn’t have a bigger career. Why doesn’t he?

  17. blinkers says:

    At least kate bosworth is his daughter not his wife… that’s all I got
