About the Movie

"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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: I liked the pace and the pulse of the film, but it launches no genuine surprise and, despite being irradiated with scenes of sickness and morbid one-liners, has little afterglow. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Gibson, of course, snaps and snarls and blows out some brains with a joylessness that is thoroughly enjoyable. It's like he never left. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Nov 30, 2011

Rotten: The acting, with the exception of Bojana Novakovic, adds nothing to the trite plot. – Ed Koch, The Atlantic, Jan 12, 2018

Rotten: Monahan mistakes rambling exposition for captivating back-and-forth and Campbell doesn't help any by making the film as drab and turgidly paced as possible. – Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, Oct 21, 2014

king of the movie announce

One of the greatest movies of mel gibson i am huge fan of gibson but this movie has great storlyline and great acting fantastic plot this movie i can say its has to be in everyone colection i mean must see

Saw it in theaters; gonna buy it too!

I went and saw this movie in the theater a week after it was released. It will keep you on the edge of your seat and put you in Craven's(Gibson's) shoes. He has a "nothing-to-lose" mentality in this one. I think this is one of Mel's best and I will be adding it to my collection. I would very much recommend to anyone who wants a thrilling, action packed, storyline. buy it!
