Mel Gibson is one of the most talented actors I've ever seen on screen in my life. His acting ability extends beyond whatever direction he takes it. He can make you laugh hysterically, cry and sob so hard that you cannot even breathe, or keep you sitting at the very edge of your seat. He brings you right there with him to that time and place of whatever role he is playing with ever part of his being.
As a producer and director he has proved to be just as awesome. Mr. Gibson does his research very thourghly before he does a movie project. I highly commend him on that. He stays true to himself when the world comes against him. I believe he has what it takes to produce and direct the most wonderful movies of his time.
