ProGood pace, effective enough as a thriller

ConsLong winded and somewhat absurd

Does the name Martin Campbell ring any bells with moviegoers? You may remember he made that 007 film called Casino Royale. The film with a little bit of creativity and the only Bond film with any heart. Not everyone will agree but for me it was the only Bond film I liked and not just because it...

“Edge of Darkness Film Review”

published 14/07/2010

ProMel Gibson, Old-School Action

ConsMay be too overlong in places for some

Judging by the film's ad campaign, I went to see Edge Of Darkness thinking it was going to be something of a cross between Payback, Taken, and Man On Fire. For better or for worse it goes much deeper than that. Based on a British TV series of the same name, the story follows Tom Craven (Gibson)...

Constoo complex

Mel Gibson's first return to the silver screen since 2002's 'Signs' promised to be the amazing story that Gibson claimed would be the only thing to bring him back to the movies, but fell a tad flat. The film's opening relies on cliche Gibson in his father role, as he enjoys a meal with his...

ConsSome of the storyline takes a lot to believe

This is not anything special by way of a movie, however complex plots aside, there is enough to keep you glued to the screen until the solutions become obvious. There is a sudden and startling series of events which catch you out, like a good horror movie, short sharp shocks tend to keep you...
