What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
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.

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.Read more ›
He is armed with a few clues: His daughter was sick, barfing her guts out. There was a phone call to her cell phone shortly after she was killed and the person hung up. In going through her effects, he finds a hand gun. His detective work quickly leads him to believe she was the target. The acting was good. The script was fairly solid, although one of the first signs of radiation poisoning is diarrhea, something we didn't get to see, and perhaps that is a good thing.
Warning: There is one scene where he bad mouths post traumatic stress syndrome (Gulf Wars) as something that doesn't exist.
