His following film was ''Film/TheBeaver'', which tells the story of a man whose life was ruined by alcohol and who finds a very unusual way to get his life back in order--by using a sock puppet beaver as a separate personality. The film was notable for its RealitySubtext, but did little to shift Gibson's career direction. Gibson's next film, ''Film/GetTheGringo'' (titled ''How I Spent My Summer Vacation'' in some countries) started a small Renaissance. Though the film bypassed American cinemas and opened in the USA on [=DirectTV=], it was well received and helped raise Gibson's stock. He followed up with ''Film/MacheteKills'' and ''Film/TheExpendables3'' as the main villains. While no longer the draw he once was, he has managed to salvage his career to an extent.

Added DiffLines:

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: His natural Australian accent is very prominent in his early Hollywood roles (for example, the first ''Film/LethalWeapon''). Although he's completely switched over to an American accent even when not acting, traces of Australia still come through.
