3 ½ - Stars: A Father With Nothing To Lose is VERY DANGEROUS Indeed...
   The last time I was privy to a Mel Gibson film was “Apocalypto” when he was at its helm as director. The last time he was in front of the camera was in the movie called “Signs” which was a box-office success in some ways. Gibson once again stands in front of the camera with director Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) at the helm in “Edge of Darkness”; an adaptation of the 1985 BBC series of the same name. The original was a 6-hour thrill ride full of …

A father's love
There has been much glorification about a mother's love and mother's day. Not much has been focussed on a father's love.      This movie is quite a disaster considering it's Gibson's. Too much talking, too little actions and slow pacing to be a thriller. Or is it really a thriller? Perhaps it's not. A drama I'd think is more appropriate. Oh sure, there are a lot of shootings & some car chasing, other than that, the only salvation lies in the love …

How far are you willing to go to keep a secret?  How about the truth?  Depending on the circumstances and those involved, would you be willing to kill for either? Edge of Darkness is just that.  It borders the line between sanity and insanity, it tempts madness, and challenges one man's morals and limits after he witnesses the horrifyingly graphic death of his young daughter.  This conspiracy thriller film is a roller coaster ride through a haunted house that with quite literally …

The darkness engulfs...
You know something sinisterly good is cooking when bodies start plopping up from beneath the serene surface of a woodland river in Connecticut, with what seems like the façade of a nuclear facility looming in the distance. That facility belongs to Northmoor, the evil corporation that serves as the antagonist of Edge of Darkness. They’re in charge of the nation’s nuclear stockpile, they say. It’s all under the jurisdiction of the President of the United States, they defend. …

Mel Gibson is back. And he's pissed off.
Despite his rants Mel Gibson has always been one of my favorite actors. So when i saw the preview for Edge of Darkness I was happy to see the guy acting again.      Edge of Darkness is a movie about a fathers love for his daughter. And how far he will go to avenge her after she is brutally killed on his front porch.   Sound Familiar? Well yeah because the story (like Avatar) is one we've seen numerous times already. Story wise theres nothing special about this …

A father's rage cab be a very dangerous thing....
Mel Gibson is a fantastic director, actor and producer   he is uncompromising when it comes to his films  such as" Gallipoli"(1981), " Lethal Weapon"(1987), "Ransom" (1996),or his Academy award winning film " Braveheart"(1991). Gibson has proved repeatedly why he is one of Hollywood's best and most powerhouse actors, after having a career that spans almost thirty years Mel Gibson had seemed to slip into obscurity after making his two last …

Better in theaters when the volume of suspense is LOUD. If you're patient enough to reach the fast-paced ending, it might be worth the ride.

Some see justice at the end, I see dark sides to corporations & governments. Not Gibson's best.

Decent Action Drama and whether you love or hate Mel Gibson, you cannot deny that the man can act.

Director Martin Campbell refashions his 1986 Edge of Darkness: The Complete BBC Series to fit into a two-hour film format of the same name starring Mel Gibson as the tortured father using his police credentials to discover the identity of his daughter's murderer. Is it a successful re-creation? For all intents and purposes, the piece does work as an example of unrelenting drama with a visceral reality that smarts the eyes and turns the stomach. A visibly older Gibson stares at the audience with …
