Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Mel Gibson's directorial debut is as routine as they come, packaging familiar elements from movies about mentors, disfigurement, and unjustified fears of the unknown, then sealing it all up with gorgeous cinematography of coastal Maine. In addition to his first directing project, the film seems to semi-intentionally double as Gibson's attempt to place his talents as an actor at the forefront, blurring his matinee-idol looks through burn scars that obscure half of his face. The Man Without a Face has the utterly conventional feel of a film given a director for his first effort, something with modest ambitions that can't be screwed up by a neophyte. On this level, it has the pleasures to keep the viewer interested, as long as expectations are kept low enough. Child actor Nick Stahl makes an impressive debut in the central role, appearing in almost every scene and proving himself always up to the task. And Gibson really doesn't need to don a bunch of makeup to prove he's more than just a pretty face, as prior works like Hamlet (1990) have demonstrated. The Man Without a Face may not stake a claim toward lingering importance, but viewed as the film that allowed Gibson to get his feet wet before directing Braveheart, it becomes a useful and necessary achievement.
