Critics Consensus: Darkness Balances on the Edge of Freshness
This week at the movies, we've got an angry detective (Edge of Darkness, starring Mel Gibson and Ray Winstone) and a Roman holiday (When in Rome, starring Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel). What do the critics have to say? It's been nearly a decade since Mel Gibson has played a leading role onscreen. And critics say the reason Edge of Darkness works as well as it does is Gibson's presence, which elevates the film above a run-of-the-mill revenge thriller. When in Rome attempts to meld romantic comedy and fairy tale tropes into a picturesque travelogue. However, critics say this long-delayed would-be confection is hardly worth the trip - it's a forced and unconvincing attempt at whimsy that falls flat.
