Director Martin Campbell, the man behind the 1980's British TV drama series "Edge Of Darkness", delivers a film remake with an engaging story and a cast of talented actors that's worth the watch.

The two most notable and outstanding actors are indeed Mel Gibson and Ray Winstone. Mel Gibson's performance was flawless throughout his portrayal as Thomas Craven, a detective who loses his objective in life as he pursues justice for his murdered daughter. He was truly believable as a dad on a mission to make things right. It probably marks as his first major starring role after M. Night Shyamalan's thriller "Signs" in 2002. Meanwhile, Ray Winstone plays an intriguing character named Jedburgh, a CIA agent who is employed by some higher brasses to cover up the death of Craven's daughter. The entire cast of the movie was pretty decent, filled with experienced actors such as Danny Huston ("X-Men Origins: Wolverine") and Shawn Roberts ("I Love You, Beth Cooper").

In retrospective, this writer feels that the story took a while to develop but when it was completely formed, it proved to be quite entertaining. There were a few plots during the film where audiences would find it overwhelming to understand; however it was nicely worked in together to form a well structured movie as the show progressed. On an interesting note, Mel Gibson uttered a powerful quote during a scene with his daughter's lawyer, saying, "I have nothing to lose and the senator has plenty to lose" as he pursues the case further.

In general, the movie is a must watch movie if u are a fan of thriller or suspenseful movies with plenty of twists and turns.
