"Edge of Darkness" is an emotionally charged thriller set at the intersection of politics and big business. Thomas Craven (Mel Gibson) is a veteran homicide detective for the Boston Police Department and a single father. When his only child, 24-year-old Emma (Bojana Novakovic), is murdered on the steps of his home, everyone assumes that he was the target. But he soon suspects otherwise, and embarks on a mission to find out about his daughter's secret life and her killing. His investigation leads him into a dangerous, looking-glass world of corporate cover-ups, government collusion and murder--and to shadowy government operative Darius Jedburgh (Ray Winstone), who has been sent in to clean up the evidence. Craven's solitary search for answers about his daughter's death transforms into an odyssey of emotional discovery and redemption.

  • Don’t let the critics fool you! An excellent movie!

    A dark and gritty Boston conspiracy noir directed to perfection by journeyman Bond director Martin Campbell, featuring an intense and focused lead performance by an excellent Mel Gibson and a great supporting turn by a very mercurial and enigmatic Ray Winstone. This movie is brutal, violent and very smartly shot and executed and should have reached a wider audience and wider acclaim.

  • Pretty Darn Good

    Mel Gibson is Mel Gibson in this movie. It's worth watching (probably not buying) just for the end scene. A lot of people consider this a tragedy, when, in reality, it's not and has a fantastic ending (well, the afterlife scene is not so fantastic). Overall, Mel Gibson is awesome and dominates the movie. Not a great buy, but a great rent.
  • Simply excellent
