Critic Reviews of "Edge of Darkness"NewsdayJuly 06, 2010
Gibson, of course, snaps and snarls and blows out some brains with a joylessness that is thoroughly enjoyable. It's like he never left.Time OutFebruary 02, 2010
Scriptwriters William Monahan and Andrew Bovell have sadly sacrificed some of the original's cultural specificity and its slow-burn quality.New YorkerFebruary 01, 2010
I liked the pace and the pulse of the film, but it launches no genuine surprise and, despite being irradiated with scenes of sickness and morbid one-liners, has little afterglow.New York Magazine/VultureFebruary 01, 2010
Edge of Darkness is a meathead revenge picture, but it's very satisfying.New York PostJanuary 29, 2010
Campbell and his cinematographer, Phil Meheux, create a pervasive sense of dread, with danger lurking around every corner of Boston and its environs.New York TimesJanuary 29, 2010
Edge of Darkness is reasonably well executed, but its competence reeks of fatigue. Another dead kid. Another angry dad. Another day at the office.Salt Lake TribuneMarch 30, 2012
A thoughtful and harrowing drama about the lengths people will go to survive - and the changes of heart that one person undergoes to help them.Movies.comApril 04, 2011
Films like this are musicals for people who enjoy gunfire and Mel Gibson being shouty. They're that satisfyingly heightened version of reality no one actually gets to experience.ComingSoon.netMarch 21, 2011
Adapted from the landmark BBC mini-series by original director Martin Campbell, Edge of Darkness is a polished piece of political suspense masquerading as a crime drama and pulling off both rather successfully.MoviedexOctober 29, 2010
The attempt at grittiness comes off soft.QuickflixOctober 21, 2010
Monahan mistakes rambling exposition for captivating back-and-forth and Campbell doesn't help any by making the film as drab and turgidly paced as possible.Movie ViewsAugust 01, 2010
Martin Campbell returns to the once edgy and jagged ground of his excellent BBC miniseries Edge of Darkness with a much slicker spin that sheds much of what made the first go around so good.
