Excerpt: "Edge of Darkness" looks very impressive projected at 100 inches. Fine detail is excellent and consistent throughout. The color palette delivers a beautiful rich image even in the most technically challenging scenes, and the image is sharp without betraying it's natural filmic appearance.
Summary: Edge of Darkness is a dark and gritty crime thriller, based on a 1986 British Mini-series of the same name. The story was actually pretty good, filled with twists, turns, crosses, and double crosses, but the problem was that it was all too familiar.
Summary: You realize how much as an audience we have missed the volatile intensity of Gibson and his ability to elevate over-plotted genre material into something genuinely engaging. Assisted by a privately amused Ray Winstone who works as a detached counterpart to Gibson's grief stricken Boston cop.
Summary: An about to retire police detective investigates his daughters death. Mystery surrounds her death and soon the investigation reveals more information on why his activist daughter was slain. This is a good movie with a good plot. I enjoyed and there is no doubt that you will too.
Excerpt: A pretty good film, sometimes a little slow, bad ending, not a fan of walking towards the white light. Dialogue a little low and hard to understand at times, what the hell is Ray Winstone saying?
Summary: I think it was great for Mel Gibson to be back in an action movie where AGAIN he is playing the role of a cop. He does a great job but i honestly have to say that the spark dies after the beginning and takes a while to come back.
