Edge of Darkness is a remake of an older BBC drama of the same name. In this Americanized version, Gibson plays Thomas Craven, a Boston city police officer who, upon picking up his daughter for a weekend visit, is attacked in his own home, and his daughter is murdered. The murderer yelled out "Craven" before putting two shotgun shells into his daughter and running. Craven vows to find the killer, and why he was being targeted. As he follows the evidence, though, he realizes that the attacker wasn't after him at all, but after his daughter, because she stood to blow the lid off a massive secret at her employer.
Edge of Darkness had a couple of cool moments, but they were overshadowed by the rather glacial pace of the semi-procedural movie. When you watch a Gibson movie, you want to see people get killed and things blow up, and there was just too much of a lack of those things. Also, Gibson's acting was over the top in a lot of places, and some of the stuff that happened in the movie seemed WAY to cliche. All in all, Edge of Darkness is definitely a wait for DVD, or whenever it's on cable.
