This film hits you hard straight out of the blocks and it shows how good Mel Gibson is as an actor.
After watching his daughter murdered infront of his eyes, he goes on a one-man assault, desperately trying to track down his daughter's killer. It is very gritty and is set amidst a very grey and bleak city of Boston (which I think adds to the loneliness of Gibson's character).
Ray Winstone plays a great, yet confusing, role as a shady agent and you never really know whose side he is on. Edge Of Darkness is a stripped-back and raw thriller made for the art of revenge.
