Edge of Darkness - Mel Gibson is Back!

Conspiracy, manufacture of nuclear weapons and government collusion take the spotlight in "Edge of Darkness", Mel Gibson's return to the big screen. After a 7 year absence, the iconic Australian star has finally made a comeback in Martin Campbell's action-drama! Though age is gradually catching up with my all-time favorite actor, his boyish charm is still undeniable!

When unidentified gunmen shoots his visiting daughter in front of their house, Detective Thomas Craven (Mel Gibson) initially thought that they were after him. But as he unravels the evidence gathered, he learns of his daughter's unfortunate predicament. Soon, this takes him to the office of a senator!

Not my favorite Mel Gibson movie, but it is nevertheless entertaining, although to be honest, his heavily wrinkled face is starting to bother me. He was once a Greek God whose masculine beauty was second to none. These days, he is just a 54 year old handsome mortal! ;->

Who wouldn't ogle at a face like that?

Full steam ahead. He has 6 movies in various state of development. I am particularly looking forward to his team up with Leonardo DiCaprio and a dramedy called "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" about a criminal (Gibson) who is placed in a tough Mexican prison where he learns to survive with the help of a 9-year-old boy.
