The movie is a parade of cliches.

Top Critic

A star-studded dud of a B-picture populated with corrupt politicians, rogue psycho cops, noble newspaper reporters and enough posturing to start up a chiropractic clinic.

One ultimately can't help but scratch one's head at the presence of such well-known figures as Morgan Freeman and Kevin Spacey within Edison Force...

Reel Film Reviews

There's nothing redeeming in this pathetic shoot-em-up.

Film Scouts

Nothing more than a sub-average direct-to-video actioner with a few A-listers stuck in the leads.

Audience Reviews for Edison (Edison Force)

½

"Edison Force is a good thriller. I was surprised that with it being good and with the cast it has, that it was a film that went straight to DVD. I enjoyed the story and thought all of the acting was solid. I am usually a disbeliever of rappers and singers being good actors, but LL Cool J continues to prove me wrong. I really enjoy him in movies. Plus he's nice eye candy. Justin Timberlake was also good in this. I've see in a few movies now. His acting has definitely gotten better since this movie.
The movie is your basic cops gone bad with a news reporter seeking out the truth trying to expose those said cops. Although the story is not original, it is still good. I would see it again."

The performances are quite good but the story lacks intelligence and structure. The conclusion is laughable and undoes a lot of good work. It's watchable but you can't help but feel it's a wasted opportunity and fairly inexcusable considering the people who worked on it. A bad day at the office.

This film had a lot of potential but in my opinion failed to deliver what could have been a great plot. A waste of two great actors; Kevin Spacey and Morgan Freeman, disappointingly watchable
