Love him or hate him, Mel Gibson always gives 100% in whatever he does.

And he is the only reason to watch this typical Emmett/Furla time-wasting action picture. Here, subbing for Bruce Willis who usually is the nominal "star" of these poorly-written & directed tax write-offs, Mel does his best as an ex-NYC cop trying to stop a group of bad guys robbing a run-down apartment block during a hurricane.

Whatever talent indy director Michael Polish one showed is now depleted as he puts his cast -- most of them looking like they're sleepwalking except for an earnest performance by Stephanie Cayo -- through the requisite 90 minutes of low budget thrills.

The question that needs to be asked is: With every other person in Los Angeles writing screenplays, why can't EF Films find something worth the time and effort? Why waste talented people on such schlock?

This is one of those movies where you keep wondering how the hell it made it through quality control. Is there even such a thing, or did someone just have some money to launder, because telling a good, or even just a coherent story definitely doesn't seem to have mattered. Some cliché bad guys, a flimsy reason for them to shoot at some good guys and of course a stupid nazi subplot shoehorned into the mix because there can't be a Hollywood movie where we aren't reminded of that, can there? It's boring and tedious, there is no suspense, the characters are lame and nothing they do makes any sense. You don't care about any of them, so when the guy and the girl in between gunfights connect through small talk about their previous lives, it's nothing but awkward. Mel Gibson was just a side show too.

Absolute waste of time. Stay away.

I like watching Mel Gibson, take him out of this movie and I would give it 3.

Mel isn't exactly William Wallace in this movie, far from his best.

Generous with a 4 only cos of Gibson, otherwise this film is a total time waster. In fact, revisiting Hard Rain starring Christian Slater is much better than this lousy film. I dont kno why Gibson agreed to do this film. This movie belonged to Bruce Willis, Seagal, Van Damme, Cage, etc.

The lead actor Emile Hirsch has a double chin. The lead villain David Zayas shud hav at least remove his goatee to delete his Dexter image from our minds. He ain't convincing at all. In fact Lance Henrickson wud have done a better job. Kate Bosworth is looking haggard. Stephanie Cayo with her make up n style is looking too hot for a cop. Gibson is totally wasted.

Ther is a scene where aft all the commotion n firing, characters have plenty of time to stitch the wound n chitchat. Ther is no hand to hand combat, no good gun action sequences, no tension or suspense, the ending with the uniform is predictable n laughable n to be honest ther is no planning or proper heist. Its jus plain burglary.

All thru the film I was waiting for some dog attack scene but wot a dud man.

This is ok to watch but only if you have exhausted your options. If you are looking for some action sequences supported by a good cast and and a good overall story, then this might be fun. The story is actually fine, the actors are also fine and the acting is fine. However, there are big problems with the dialogue and some action scenes, which sometimes make you think you are watching a B-movie with A-list actors... The director decided to create good action sequences but very boring and rather useless in-between conversations. The moments where there is no action, sometimes make no sense. If you are willing to go past that, then you 'd end up with an ok film experience. This film is kinda saved by its good cast. Also the hurricane concept is not really present as you would expect it to be, judging by the way they promoted this film. 6/10

I just don't understand why Mel was in this movie!! Please someone explain why he would even think of acting in such a horrible movie.

There is nothing good about this movie.

This movie is terrible. Couldn't even finish it. Thought it had enough names in it to be decent, but it's not. Hard pass.

Where to start!! Let's start with Mel Gibson. Its seems now a days a lot of these low budget action films are casting once great actors from the 80s and 90s in small roles to entice fans. Bruce Willis being a prime example! Gibson doesn't have a great deal of screen time in this film. The main stars are Emile Hersch and Kate Bosworth. It centres around the occupants of an apartment complex during a hurricane refusing to leave, and to make matters worse there are some nasty men now looking for something in one of the rooms. Enter Hersch the hero cop trying to get everyone out with the help of Gibson's daughter Bosworth. That's it!! You could of put Danny Glover in the apartment next door and called it lethal weapon 5. I wanted to turn the movie off afte 30 minutes but the wife insisted we finished!!

The script is so bad it's laughable. It's cut together so poorly it just confuses you mostly. Half way through I'm checking IMDb to see if this movie was sitting on a shelf and only released because of COVID. Nothing in this movie is worth the watch. Nothing.

I bought "Force of Nature" on Amazon to support Mel Gibson and I really wanted to like it. Unfortunately, the flick is a turkey on almost every level. The only time it really works is when Mel is on screen and he's only up there for maybe thirty minutes. For whatever reason, he delivers his lines in some kind of New York-New Jersey accent which, to my ears, didn't quite work.

Emile Hirsch and Stephanie Cayo were badly miscast as street cops in Puerto Rico. Neither of these snowflakes was even remotely believable. Fortunately for their reputations as actors, their characters were so poorly conceived that audiences may cut them some slack on their acting. Seriously, a white male cop in San Juan who can't speak Spanish? That's about as believable as a model-thin, white latina larping as a street cop in San Juan.

Regarding the 23-million dollar budget, a friend of mine is convinced the movie couldn't possibly have cost that much to make. He thinks it proves the whole thing was made as a tax write-off.

Summing up, FoN is only worth seeing if you're a big fan of Mel. On the IMDb scale, I give it a '5' but if not for Gibson it would be a '3'.

Horrible plot, bad acting, and predictable "twist". I had a difficult time even finishing the movie.

Force of Nature has a few entertaining moments, but it's very forgettable and it blends in with a hundred other movies. However, Mel Gibson was the main attraction that I was eager to watch this film. But the Mel of Lethal Weapon was shown as coughing and stubborn old man. Besides he has short role in the movie. The fight scenes aren't that bad, all things considered. Force of Nature is not a bad film. It had its fair share of problems, but for a low budget action film with an aging action star, it's not bad at all.
