Review of "Edge of Darkness"


Edge of Darkness (Playing everywhere)
Director: Martin Campbell
With: Mel Gibson, Bojana Novakovic, Danny Huston, Ray Winstone

Gibson excels in “fight the power” stories, where a little guy goes against great odds.  So it is here, as he plays Tom Craven, a Boston cop whose daughter Emma (Novakovic) is murdered before his eyes by a masked assassin.  He comes to believe that she was not collateral damage, but the target of the killer.
As he investigates, he learns that Emma was a whistle-blower in a government contractor working with a shadowy eco-commando group.  He claws his way up the corporate food chain looking for the reasons she was killed, and who called and executed the hit.
