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. The only flaw I found was some very minor edge enhancement in a few scenes, but it was barely noticeable.
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. Murdered daughter, angry father looking for justice, Mel Gibson on a crazy rampage....and why are these things always in Boston?
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. The first time i watched it i actually fell asleep which of course made me watch it again. Then i started to appreciate more about it and enjoy it a bit more.
