Edge of Darkness Trailer
Now back from the cold of “Sundance”. I must watch mainstream films. So, this week I tackle Mel Gibson and “Edge of Darkness”
Tom Craven (Mel Gibson) a Boston detective. Welcomes home his one and only daughter. The visit is short lived. When unexpectedly she is gunned down on the front porch. Assuming Tom was the intended target. The police follow that trail. But, as they discover there was no reason to kill Tom. Tom takes it upon himself to track down the truth. And what he discovers is a much larger problem.
Yes, the storyline sounds familiar. But, Hollywood doesn’t have much originality left. Despite that. It was well done. Mel Gibson did a find job. Despite his 8 year hiatus from playing a lead character. I give this a luke-warm
