Starring: Mel Gibson, Ray Winstone, Danny Huston
Directed by: Martin Campbell (“Casino Royale”)
Written by: William Monahan (“The Departed”) and Andrew Bovell (“Strictly Ballroom”)

“Edge of Darkness” is what Mel Gibson does best. This revenge film is overly-written in a number of places, but Gibson knows how to deliver some of the most intense scenes as an actor. Here, he channels his rage into one very believable man with a vendetta. It’s gripping despite its flaws in its storytelling.
