  • Strange and gloomy. show more

  • Edge of Darkness was one of the most enthralling, intricate and genuinely thrilling productions in the history of the small screen. The big-screen version--directed by Martin Campbell, who did the original--offers an example of why the studios' numbers often add up, and why, at the same time, so many of today's Hollywood movies leave us cool if not downright cold. show more

  • Gibson's acting has deepened. Too bad his comeback vehicle springs so many leaks. show more
