  • 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.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Winstone's interaction with Gibson provides the movie with much of its interest....Gibson is a credible, attractive hero, as he has always been..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    3 stars out of 5 -- "Mel Gibson shines in this kind of role, and he's at his very best in this politically charged thriller..."
    Box Office

    "EDGE OF DARKNESS hangs in there and fleshes out its '70s-style symphony of paranoia....The best of the violence carries a brutal jolt."
    Los Angeles Times

    3 stars out of 4 -- "Mel Gibson is back to doing what he does best....This tense tale of a father's love for his daughter and his blinding sense of revenge artfully blends emotion and suspense."
    USA Today

    "Mel Gibson returns to form in EDGE OF DARKNESS....Also sturdy are the supporting players, particularly Ray Winstone as a quietly threatening government op..."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "Gibson speaks in a dry Boston accent and really gets the gruff, blunt working-class Boston Irish 'tude behind those inflections." -- Grade: B
    Entertainment Weekly

    3 stars out of 5 -- "Nobody goes postal quite like Mel, giving a white heat to his personal mission that keeps us watching."
    Total Film

    3 stars out of 5 -- "Gibson brings the pain -- either with a pistol or his eyes, which carry the same wounded, vulnerable quality they always have, here fully exploited."

    "Mel Gibson's return to acting is a welcome sight....[He] shows his movie-star shine hasn't dimmed."
    Rolling Stone

    3 stars out of 4 -- "A slow-burning conspiracy with an incredible performance by Gibson."

    3 stars out of 5 -- "A sturdy big-screen remake....Ray Winstone steals the show as an enigmatic 'fixer' who may or may not be one of the good guys."
