Like last year’s State of Play, Edge of Darkness is a Hollywood re-make of an iconic British miniseries, in this case a nuclear weapons conspiracy that grief-stricken cop Mel Gibson investigates after his daughter, who works for a shadowy corporation, is murdered. Although directed by the 1985 original’s Martin Campbell, this Darkness doesn’t have the same sinister or enigmatic edge, but has been cleverly updated and boasts a terrific, tough-guy dinosaur turn from Gibson that almost makes up for the gratuitous violence and execrable ending. The Blu-ray has stylish steelbook packaging and includes four deleted scenes and 30 minutes of behind-the-scenes shorts that can be viewed within the movie.
