I was fortunate enough to catch a free screening for this film in Los Angeles and I'm proud to say I was more than satisfied. Edison is powerful, action packed, edge of your seat excitement. LL Cool J is a cop caught between a rock and a hard place because the business which is suppose to be enforcing justice becomes more than just protecting the law. Justin Timberlake is "Pollack" a naive young journalist trying to get to the bottom of the suspicious actions surrounding the "First Response And Tactical" aka the "F.R.A.T." The film is provocative and has a quality blend of mind blowing action and an extraordinarily riveting plot. Morgan Freeman manages to do it again, this time as the mentor and veteran journalist who's challenging force becomes an encouragement to the aspirations of Pollack. The most impressive aspect in this film is the pacing that director David J. Burke chooses to set as the tone for the film. Though there are points where the plot moves slower than others, it still advocates a movement that will keep an audience captivated and enthralled till the final showdown. If you are looking for the type of action film that's a psychological thriller or slapstick comedy, then you should hold onto your money till the return of "Keyser Soze" or "Rush Hour 3." Edison is simply a popcorn and soda, sit back and relax, shoot em up that will have you leaving the theater smiling.

In a crooked time where there are questions that can't be answered and demands that go without questioning; who can you trust?Reviewed byGeorge_LangworthVote: 8/10
Edison starts out as a good,solid action thriller. The story builds up pretty nice, even Justin Timberlake surprises with his acting. But as the movie move's on it turns into a normal average action flick, flamethrowers included. A pity when you consider the star packed cast(Kevin spacey, Morgan freeman, ll cool j). The violence is hard and real, especially when the journalist and his girlfriend are being beat up. But turns overdone at the end of the movie, with big shootouts and trunks full of army stock. overall i've came to this conclusion, Edison: an average movie that could be so much more.... i give it 5 out of 10.... m.w.
Oh dear god. This was horrible. There is bad, then there was this. This movie makes no sense at all. It runs all over the map and isn't clear about what its saying at all. The music seemed like it was trying to be like Batman. The fact that 'Edison' isn't a real city, takes away. Since I live in Vancouver, watching this movie and recognizing all these places made it unbearable. Why didn't they make it a real city? The only writing that was decent was'Tilman' in which John Heard did a fantastic job. He was the only actor who played his role realistically and not over the top and campy. It was actually a shame to see John Heard play such a great bad guy with a lot of screen time, and the movie be a washout. Too bad. Hopefully someone important will see it, and at least give John Heard credit where credit is due, and hire him as lead bad guy again, which is where he should be. on the A List.
