Edge of Darkness Reviewed

1/25/2010 12:02:00 AM

There was a review of Edge of Darkness (here) this weekend in Variety, it was not great. Don't get me wrong, I'm still going to see it - I hardly ever let movie reviews affect my actual decision to see a movie. But I was reading through the review yesterday and figured you guys might want to read it as well.

The backstory might be the most interesting part of "Edge of Darkness," and no, that doesn't refer to star Mel Gibson's somewhat checkered history. "Casino Royale" and "Mask of Zorro" helmsman Martin Campbell remakes a BAFTA award-bejeweled six-hour BBC miniseries he directed 25 years ago. Yet as with the recent "State of Play," the miniseries-to-movie transfor standing, relatively limited action should also dampen box office prospects.

Ouch.  I don't mind limited action, as long as the movie is well done.  I did after all see Extraordinary Measures a couple weeks ago (when's the last time you saw a PG move?) and promised neither good action nor good acting.
