Edge of Darkness

Boston detective, Mel Gibson, embarks on a personal investigation of his daughter's murder and finds himself at the 'Edge of Darkness' in a mix of national security issues, corruption and conspiracy.

Thankfully Gibson tones down some of the manic facial expressions that have marked his preceding performances. He takes us on a slick and quite engrossing journey which I found entertaining throughout despite the fact that the conspiracies become increasingly convoluted to the point where I had little idea 'what was behind whom' by the end. Typically for a Gibson film, the body count rises exponentially as the film reaches it's climax.


  1. I've been debating weather to see this film or not. Thanks for the tip!

  2. I'm still deciding on this one. Might wait for DVD.
