“Edge of Darkness was a sensation when it first aired on British television in 1985. Aired on PBS in the United States, it was a dark, brooding thriller that seemed destined for a big-screen version that would be found lacking in ways big and small. However, Mel Gibson’s 2010 version of the story still provides a lot of the sadness, bitterness, and intrigue with some changes that while they do necessarily improve the story, they don’t damage it, either.

Gibson plays Tom Craven (played as Ron Craven by Bob Peck in the original), a widowed Boston Homicide detective eagerly awaiting the visit of his only child Emma, who works for a research facility, Northmoor. Soon into the visit, Craven sees that his daughter is very ill. Just as he is taking her to the hospital, she is shot and killed. Being a police officer, Craven immediately assumes that the bullet was meant for him, but upon investigating further, he soon learns that she was involved in the illegal entry of Northmoor by a protest group looking for evidence of wrongdoing by the corporation. A conspiracy begins to surround Craven that includes Northmoor, a US senator, and a shadowy government fixer named Jedburgh, played by Roy Winstone.

Gibson is always in his element in revenge thrillers, and Edge of Darkness is no exception. His tears, anger, rage, and righteous indignation strike the right notes at the right time, and he is ably supported by an excellent script and solid supporting cast. Again, a few details have been changed, but the general story remains bleak with perhaps a little more Hollywood hope and optimism added for good measure.

It’s been seven years since Mel Gibson has appeared on the silver screen, and he definitely chose the right film as his comeback vehicle. While the conspiracy theories that make up the film aren’t incredibly original, you are still treated to Gibson’s strong screen presence and a tense storyline.

I’m unfamiliar with the British miniseries that this film was based on, so I’m basing my opinion solely on my thoughts of this movie in particular. A variety of mysterious characters prevent the film from being predictable, and you’re thrown an interesting curveball from what the movie’s trailer might lead you to assume about the story. I will also fess up that this was the first movie I’ve seen in years with a scene that made me jump in my seat (to the people in front of me, I apologize for getting popcorn on you).

One funny thing that I’ll give kudos to director Martin Campbell for is not hiding the fact that Gibson is all of 5’9″ in real life. Jay O. Sanders (playing fellow detective Whitehouse) towers over Mel in several scenes, a reminder that this film is a different beast than action flicks like Lethal Weapon or Mad Max.

I won’t share the plot with you, because the less you know about the film in advance, the more you will enjoy it. For all of Gibson’s controversies, one thing is undeniable, this is a solid comeback effort that deserves a watch.

Thomas Craven, a single father, has been a Boston homicide detective for many years. His 24-year-old daughter Emma, his only child, is killed on the front steps of his home. At first it appears that Craven was the intended target. He soon uncovers evidence that leads him to think differently, and decides to pursue the information at all costs. He learns his daughter led a secret life that led to her murder. He quickly finds himself confronted with a shadowy world of corporate collusion with government-sanctioned murder. In the process he collides with a secret government operative, Darius Jedburgh, whose job is to clean up and hide any remaining evidence. Craven’s singleness of purpose in finding answers about Emma’s death becomes a transforming experience that changes his life.

Mel Gibson has not lost his touch. The script is smart and very well written. Mel Gibson is very intense and sincere in his role as both a grieving father and police detective who needed to uncover the truth. There are some great action scenes in this movie. I really enjoyed it. Mel is definitely back and in his element in this movie.

well this weekend I saw two movies Taken and this I watched this first and it was pretty good. The story is about a cop named Tom Creaven (Gibson) who’s daughter has been killed by a bullet meant for him or was it? In this suspensful movie you will find out the truth. Now while this movie is good there are a few bad things. One some of the dialouge could have been cut down. And I could barley understand the Engish guy lastly the story is a little hard to follow but you will get the main idea. So bottom Line if you like suspensful movies this is it and a good one.

Released in theaters in February, 2010, this suspenseful, action thriller was an excellent story-line, had excellent acting and had a few twists and surprises. The story opens in Boston. As we admire the beautiful scenery of a winding river and the fall foliage, 3 bodies pop up floating! We jump to a warmer scene, as single dad Mel Gibson (Tommy Craven) reminisces, watching home movies of his daughter playing on the beach in 1990 as a child. Emma is all grown up now, and has moved away from home.

Tommy meets Emma at the train station as she comes home for a visit, but he soon finds that she is not well. Shortly after and still in the very beginnings of the film, 24-year old Emma is killed by a drive-by shooter, screaming “Craven”!

Since Tommy is an active police detective, his department assumes that he has made enemies somewhere and they were after him, but Tommy cannot think of anyone who might want to kill him. Through a series of investigatory analysis work, Tommy begins to look into Emma’s background, revealing her work at Northmoor, a nuclear plant with national security ties to the government. Emma worked in the research department of a company dealing with nuclear fusion and stockpiles. As Tommy, with the help of his police department, begins to track down Emma’s friends and ask questions, he learns some very interesting things.

This movie is excellent and I would most certainly watch it again. Mel Gibson is wonderful, as always. I do NOT recommend this movie for young children. There is quite a bit of violence–shooting and bloodshed involved.
