Edge of Darkness Reviews
The story is fine but somehow much less interesting than it ought to be in it's presentation. Not a bad movie but it just never truly comes alive until the the last 20 minutes.
I never seen the BBC mini series so can't compare them both.
Gibson is in fine form and is ruthless as he hunts for his daughters killers.
A superb ending.

It doesn't try to be Mel Gibson's Taken, doesn't let the action do the talking, but instead flows slowly and rather sensibly. Despite the somewhat formulaic set up, the film has enough affectionate moments and the key actors Mel Gibson and Ray Winstone shine. Edge of Darkness seems to be a more realistic depiction of a 'father who loves daughter so much' scenario molded in an action-thriller format.
