Edge of Darkness

 (2010)

A cop and widower witnesses what first appears to be the accidental killing of his daughter, Emma. Distraught by the loss and further troubled by his conviction that the bullet was intended for him, he takes on the murder investigation with an obsessive zeal to see justice done. The investigation leads him to uncover an illegal plutonium stockpile.

Edge of Darkness Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5


Like Campbell, director of photography Phil Meheux appears to have approached Edge of Darkness with a more singular, purposeful focus: stripping each shot down to its bare essentials, thereby allowing Craven's emotional state to dominate the screen. As such, Warner's 1080p/VC-1 transfer isn't the most eye-popping, three-dimensional presentation you'll see this year, but it is a dark, faithful, proficient offering that does Campbell's chosen tone justice. The warm, hearthy hues of Craven's home slowly give way to a somber palette bathed in shadow, making every glint of sunlight and peaceful hillside a welcome respite. Skintones are well-saturated and lifelike, black levels are inky (albeit susceptible to crush), and contrast remains strong and stable throughout. More often than not, detail is just as striking. Sharp, refined textures are the norm, softness almost always traces back to Meheux and Campbell, and object definition is crisp and clean. Ringing and smearing are nowhere to be found, and a fine veneer of grain permeates the entire film. Backgrounds occasionally get washed away by the darkness and source noise shakes its fist here and there, but rarely at the expense of the otherwise polished presentation. Artifacting, banding, aliasing and other anomalies aren't apparent, and Warner's efforts make a fairly sizable impact overall. Fans of the film should be pleased with the results.


Edge of Darkness Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5


Contrary to what its trailers might suggest, Edge of Darkness isn't brimming with ear-shattering gunfire, throaty car chases, or screams of the dying. Death and indignity abound, mind you, but not as often as some s might expect. Quiet and intense, Campbell's slowburn thriller is marinated in a tasty, cinematic blend of hushed threats and nuanced orchestral pieces, restrained political intrigue and sudden eruptions of violence. The results are most effective, as is Warner's excellent, reasonably immersive DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. First and foremost, Monahan's manic dialogue takes center stage (figuratively and literally) and makes the most of each actor's lines. Gibson's voice is clear and commanding (even when Craven is overwhelmed by emotion), Winstone's most elusive warnings are never lost in the mix, and notable prioritization shuffles everything that enters the fray into its proper place. Granted, neither LFE output nor rear speaker activity is going to leave sensitive late-night filmfans diving for their remotes, but each one is satisfying in its own right, combining exceedingly reliable low-end support with convincing ambience and acoustics whenever sequestered. Action beats are especially impressive -- an impromptu apartment scuffle, Craven's highway pursuit, a shocking hit and run, and a pair of third-act shootouts are welcome wake-up calls to say the least -- and Howard Shore's score is given subtle reign of the proceedings. To top it all off, dynamics are decidedly decent, pans are smooth, and directionality is commendable. Edge of Darkness may offer genre junkies a somewhat subdued sonic experience, but Warner's high-quality lossless track does a fine job handling everything that comes its way.
