Product Details

Product Description

The bullet that killed his daughter was meant for Boston cop Thomas Craven. That's what police brass and Craven himself think, but that's not what the investigation finds. Clue after clue and witness after witness, the search leads him into a shadowy realm where money and political intrigue intersect. If Craven wasn't a target before, he - and anyone linked to his inquiry - now is. Mel Gibson stars in his first screen lead in eight years, making Craven's grief palpable and his quest for payback stone-cold and relentless. Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) directs from a screenplay co-written by The Departed's William Monahan. Gibson is back, taking us to the edge...and into the sinister darkness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back with a vengeance March 26 2012
Many years ago, I watched Mel Gibson's version of .Hamlet with Glenn Close. Sceptical of whether this Australian actor could pull off this character, and have the chops to do Shakespeare, my preconceptions were laid to rest by his excellent performance. Everyone touched by the taint of Hamlet died, as did Hamlet.

In Edge of Darkness, the inciting incident is not the death of the father, but the death of the only child, and we explore vicariously what happens as we look through the lens of Detective Craven's grief, we wonder what he will do next, to what lengths he will go, will he be able to control his emotions or will he lose control entirely, and cross the line. Will he survive, or will the forces of adversity win?

Memories flicker through his mind and reenact themselves onscreen as he attempts to reconcile the images of the daughter he knew with the developing picture of the daughter he lost. As he searches for answers, the body count starts to mount, and danger lurks at every turn.

His face perfectly expresses his inner anguish and torment, and Gibson gives a superb performance, as he teeters on the edge of darkness.

We had not seen him in a starring role for six years, although he has directed the The Passion of the Christ, a mega box office success, and Mel Gibson's Apocalypto [Blu-ray], an outstanding achievement in directing, one of my favorite Gibson movies, but not for the squeamish.

Point of interest, EOD also stars Danny Huston, son of Director John, and brother of Angelica. He plays the daughter's boss.

5.0 out of 5 stars great thriller nice extras on blu-ray July 11 2010
By Cheryl TOP 100 REVIEWER
Edge of Darkness is a great thriller, combining some good plot-driven action with its taut mystery. The film perhaps showcases Mel Gibson's best role and performance to date. Based on the TV series, the story may seem predictable at times but the film is so well done it's constantly riveting. Visually it's nice on blu-ray (I don't know if it's any better than the dvd) but the audio is a bit compressed (uneven with soft spots in dialogue and overly loud special effects). Also, on the blu-ray, there are a number of interesting featurettes and deleted scenes. (4 1/2 stars)

4.0 out of 5 stars Review Dec 5 2010
By Pat
It was scary because this is what happens in the real world. Very good on the edge of your seat movie. If you are a parent, this gets even scarier but also if you care about the world and the people in it. Mel Gibson acted to the enth degree. He did not let you down. If you like suspense, you will love this movie.
