One review

  • “Edge of Darkness” is based on a British 1980’s TV series of the same name. Director Martin Cambell delivers, on this serious movie, in a way that I would love to see the original series too, also directed by him. It really is well acted and directed: Ray Winstone does a hell of a good job, as he does elsewhere, and Mel Gibson gives a great performance. Gibson is the main star of the movie, there are few scenes without him, and he is convincing and pleasant to watch. The pacing and resolution of the storyline are quite satisfactory. The story was actually pretty good, filled with twists, turns, crosses, and double crosses, but the problem was that it was all too familiar. It reminds me of the “Taken”-movies… All in all, this is a really enjoyable, old fashioned thriller with a stunning performance by Gibson!
