Some Secrets Take Us To The Edge.
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.

"...musings on family and grief and Gibson's intense, but subtle, performance stay with us longest.  Claudia Puig, USA Today
"An intense Mel Gibson performance anchors this brutally effective crime thriller.  Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter

Editor's Note
CASINO ROYALE filmmaker Martin Campbell directs a remake of his own BBC miniseries with this thriller. Mel Gibson stars as Thomas Craven, a man who has spent years as a detective in Boston. When his own daughter is killed near the door of his home, Craven realizes that her death is only one piece of a puzzle filled with corruption and conspiracy, and it falls to him to discover who is behind the crime. Written by Oscar-winner William Monahan (THE DEPARTED) and screenwriter Andrew Bovell (LANTANA), EDGE OF DARKNESS also stars Ray Winstone and Danny Huston.

Expert Review Edge of Darkness (2010) - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: Josh Lasser Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 5/16/2010 11:49 AM
Mel Gibson has made a career out of playing the man on the edge.  He has done it in action comedies (Lethal Weapon), he has done it in post-apocalypse sci-fi (Mad Max), he has done it in action thrillers (Ransom), and some would say he's even done it in real life (his legal troubles from a few years ago).  It is somewhat comforting therefore to see him return to the motif in his latest film which has just hit Blu-ray, Edge of Darkness. Directed by Martin Campbell (GoldenEye, Casino Royale), Edge of Darkness is based on a British television miniseries of the same name (also directed by Campbell)....read the full review

San Francisco Chronicle 7 of 10
In the six years since his last big-screen role, Mel Gibson has taken on the look of an aging parent. He plays a Boston police detective with a grown-up daughter, and seeing him with her - that is, seeing Gibson playing opposite the young actress who plays his daughter - is like seeing an older guy who accepts that his life energy is ebbing and who takes comfort that his vitality lives undiminished in his child...Gibson has only one scene with the daughter (Bojana Novakovic) in Edge of Darkness, and he plays it with the gentle self-consciousness of someone not old but getting old, who senses that the power balance between parent and offspring has imperceptibly shifted in favor of the younger generation. This is touching to see, and so when the daughter is killed - this happens within five minutes of the opening credits - it lands with an awful impact. Director Martin Campbell films Gibson staring into space in the aftermath looking small and weakened, as if he's not only lost his reason for living but also half his physical strength...Against Gibson's aura of uncomplicated decency his co-stars' villainy gets to stand out in sharp relief. As a nuclear executive, Danny Huston seems mentally convoluted and baroque, and Dennis O'Hare's government bureaucrat is like some fretting fiend, unwilling to slow down for one second to consider obscure matters such as truth or common decency. Damian Young plays a Massachusetts senator as the worst kind of stuffed shirt: corrupt, complacent and oozing politeness...These villains are specific, of course, but they're also archetypes for the things people fear - unseen powers running our lives, running our world, threatening to take what's most precious from us. I don't see Edge of Darkness as a great movie, or a particularly exalted one, but I do see it as one made by people who know where the buttons are - and who know how to press them. Hard. - Mick LaSalle
