This film touches reality. Sometimes you have to stand for something bigger than yourself, these are the real heroes. This movie among others are real, if you look into it, to a degree of course. GREAT movie!!!
Mel Gibson still has it. Another good thriller.
I am not a huge Mel Gibson fan, but I must admit he was very good in this movie. The movie itself was sad, but well done. Pay attention .....easy to lose your way.
mel's back ...great acting and good story.
excellent movie :)
Surprisingly good. A well thought out action-thriller
I was surprised as to how much I liked this movie. Good story and action. I'm not a huge Gibson fan, but he did a solid job in the movie. While it dragged at some points, it was a entertaining overall.
Not his best film by far. Mel Gibson's strength is the playful edge he gives most of his characters. This movie is far too dark for that, and should maybe have used .. oh.. maybe James Gandolfini
the story was ok. they could have done beter job of making this movie.
not bad but it was slow for me
The movie is so so... Mel Gibson's acting on the other hand is excellent!
Ok- would not recommend to others. Better to rent from the video store.
Mel is Back! Excellent synopsis, and well told. This film touches the reality of what could be a true story. Sometimes you have to stand for something bigger than yourself, these are the real heros. Excellent film!
Boring and predictable. Mel used to be a great actor but now he's just a has been. lochnesshampster
I wasn't expecting too much but was pleasantly surprised that there was a decent storyline and action.
This movie was great, it was suspenseful and made me think. My bf and i loved it!
Good stuff! Not Mel's best, but closer to 5 than 4.
Great film. Certain people won't like it simply because Gibson's the star and they want to contribute to his downfall. I'm sure they've come on here knocking the film without actually having seen it.
This is not your typical Mel action rampage movie. Although the story is good the movie is slow. It's not what we expected from Mel.
A good old fashioned plot movie with lots of suspense and character development, mel gibson is back.
Terrific movie. Nothing wrong with the acting, script and directing. The only thing I always have problems with is when they start mumbling in a foreign dialect. I understand the director wants to portray the real thing, but in such cases, add some subtitles.
We were going to see Book of Elah but my husband somehow misheard me and bought tickets for Edge of Darkness. It was really, really good, lots of action, very interesting story line. Made me remember why I used to like the old Mel before he opened his big mouth. Don't hold that against the rest of the cast go see this movie!!
Great Movie...Enjoyed it very much
Mel Gibson never disapoinrs. Go
Bravo Mel!!! That was an excellent movie. The acting was great and Mel returned in a better shape than ever. Whoever wrote bad things and tried to judge Mel's personal life by putting behind his brilliant acting talent, is not objective. This was a serious and brilliant film. And this is one of the best actors in Hollywood. The full theater is the best proof for that.
OMG! I swear on all I hold dearly, Listen to me! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! SO BAD!
I'll give it a one star, but it doesn't even deserve that! This movie was brutal to sit through.
Gibson fairly good, as usual, but unknown Bojana Novakovic is a pleasant surprise. Story begins with potential but deteriorates to a kind of simple-minded level.
Good movie, only 4 stars because ending to me kinda sucked, i liked the twists but didnt like how it ended.
I used to be a big fan of Mel - as a director and an actor. I was shocked how bad this film was. We actually laughed at the bad acting and weak script. If felt like a B-Movie - the filming, acting, story line, etc. Really bad. Save your money. Better yet - save your time (ie don't even rent it).
Mel Gibson has made another great movie
Hoped for better, but Mel Gibson did an excellent job and that helped save the movie from some of the weaker acting.
Mel .. what's with the stand-ins - totally distracted me. Can't say I've missed you. Face it buddy ... your days of acting are no longer of interest to anyone.
Wow. So good!
Movie was very bad. One of the worst movies I've seen. We laughed at the ending and were tempted to leave halfway through. Save your money and your time!
This was a great movie. Be prepared to drop couple tears...
amazin movie with a really nice twist in the end 2 thumbs up
Gotta be honest and only rate it 2 stars. Sorry Mel because I like you buddy. Mel's acting is pretty good but everyone, and I mean everyone else is bad. Oh, and Mel's stunt double, especially in the early scenes, not even a close match; way too obvious. Wait for the blue ray folks. Signed...............GWH.
Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! Brilliant acting by Mel.
Great movie. Mel Gibson is a super actor!!! P.J.A.
it's about time a good mystery is made, too bad Hollywood can't come up with great stories, it is always the Brits who know how to do it
Expected more from Mel.....
Excellent movie! Very well written and acted. It is good to see Mel back in the movies.
Good twists. Its a thriller that has its moments, for sure - but nothing to write home about.
Slow start but overall entertaining.
Oh My God...This movie is soooo slow and dull and boring...Steven Segal could have played this part..Thats how bad the main character is..Not only is it boring..The Story Sucked and was so difficult to understand..Save your Money
Entertaining intense movie. Keeps your attention and moves along quickly. Mel Gibson’s favourite role – tough cop! Not too much violence – but not for kids. 4 stars.
Explosive and frightening.
piece of garbage, no wonder mel is back after spending so much money on his new gf
