3.0 out of 5 stars It can stand on its own but.........., 11 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Edge Of Darkness [DVD] (DVD)
Yup, good film. If I had seen this as an original concept/production then I would have been entertained. However I have been biased by watching (and bought the DVD of) the original BBC TV version. This film is a pale copy of that original. All the acting is fine, the set action pieces are good BUT the ending is laughable, it really has no faithfull connection to the original. If you haven't seen the original, watch this first - you will be entertained - and then watch the original and see how this story should be told. If you have already watched the original, give this a miss. It's good but disappointing from that perspective. I fail to understand why US film companies believe they can improve on brilliant UK TV drama. I shudder to think what they would do with House of Cards or Sandbaggers.

Fair Comment (uk version with mesmerising Clapton soundtrack wins hands down )
-- but Shudder thee not regarding House of Cards -- US version maintained the 'feel' but went into new directions and greater detail ! -- Certainly an 'as good as' !!
