I can't stand Mel Gibson and wouldn't dream of paying to see anything he's involved in. He's a bigot.

Looks like it will be a good film,
Although Mel Gibson looks a bit old to play mad max now.

As for him being a bigot, i think it was blown out of proportion, Yes he said some bigotted things but havent we all at one time,
Just that the media picked up on it and went mad about it.

You know Mel Gibson personally then Eh Kate B?

  Kate B 20:20 04 Nov 2006

Fred, if you've paid any attention to the news over the past few years you'll have seen Gibson (and his father) being taken to task for some extremely anti-Semitic stances. You don't have to know someone personally to take a view on their public utterances.

I thought you knew better than that.

pfft. That apology doesn't mean he's changed his deeply held views. He's got a long history of rabid anti-semitism. That apology was mostly PR.

Religion and politics Kate - religion and politics.

True, true ... ;)

Kate B, it's not a good idea to form an opinion of someone or something from media articles. As Fred the flour grader says, do you know him personally? Unfortunately, it's a fact of life that people selectively choose information to bolster their own opinions. There are two distinct sides about Princess Diana, but how many people with these opposing opinions personally knew her? The media often quote "a close friend said...", but no close friend would reveal such information. But, as spikeychris says, this is getting into politics and religion.
