Wknd Box Office: Anti-Semite Melís Far-Left Garbage, Evil GOP Mass U.S. ... (Debbie Schlussel Alert)
Debbie Schlussel ^ | 1/29/2010 | Debbie Schlussel

“Edge of Darkness“:

You know the drill: an evil American defense contractor (aren’t they all evil, in the Hollywood playbook?) mass-murders innocent left-wing activists and employees who are trying to expose the company’s evil activities. Oh, and did I mention that the defense contractor, “Northmoor” (probably supposed to be Northrop),” is in bed with an evil, effeminate Republican Massachusetts U.S. Senator, to whose campaign its CEO is a big contributor? Well, they made this movie before Scott Brown’s election, but ya never know. Things can always be quickly edited to fit Hollywood’s latest propaganda narrative.

But, wait. .... Then, there’s the “conspiracy”: the evil the company is trying to hide is that it manufactures dirty bombs and nuclear weapons for the Defense Department, which are designed to look like they were made in third party countries. The word “jihadist” is used in reference to that (”jihadist dirty bombs”), so apparently, sub rosa, evil America is framing or trying to frame the jihadists and “other countries” in terrorist attacks and poisoning left-wing activists with radiation. Nauseating enough for you?

Mel Gibson plays a Boston cop (with a transparently inaccurate Boston accent), whose daughter was an employee of the defense contractor. She was helping the left-wing activists and trying to expose the company’s evil, villainous activities. The activists died of radiation poisoning that the defense contractor visited upon them to kill them. And Gibson’s daughter is poisoned and shot. He investigates, preaches and moralizes, is in a lot of action scenes, and makes friends with a hitman. Then, everyone dies. Capitalism, defense contractors, and America’s weapons to defend itself and our national security–all of these are evil. The end. ...

The only truism here is that, Mel Gibson’s Jew-hatred aside, there’s something in this movie for every flavor of America-hater and far-lefty.

This is a good review of "Edge." Mel Gibson redeemed himself with the Hollywood Left by making a film that tarred Republicans and defamed defense contractors. Its a vile of high quality Bin Laden cinema dreck. Avoid at ALL COSTS. In this movie, as Debbie Schlussel rightly says, "there’s something in this movie for every flavor of America-hater and far-lefty." Skip-worthy, indeed.

I always wondered if Mel bought into the crap his dad must’ve fed him all these years.
I guess this answers my question.

You will not like a movie that attacks American values, apologizes for the war on terror and views defending this country evil. Its too much to expect a pro-American film from Hollywood in the Age Of Obama.

Mel went way round the bend at least a decade back.

I guess he needed the paycheck bad to sign up for this. If he wasn't the star, it would be completely forgettable.

I saw Mel Gibson on Jay Leno the other night. He claimed he just quit smoking but he was so keyed up and jittery he looked more like a a hop-head on a high...

Mel Gibson is an *AMERICAN HERO*. The Passion of the Christ is the *GREATEST* movie *EVER* made.

The Passion of the Christ is a fantastic movie but that does not make Mel Gibson an American hero.

Is he just a hired actor or is this film one of his babies?

Mel’s face looks like Cramer’s face in that seinfeld episode where cramer takes up smoking a pipe and the fix up his face to look like an 80 year old chain smoker.

Hired actor. His divorce must’ve got him punching a time clock again.

divorce and out-of-wedlock baby will do that to a guy I suppose.

I saw the movie today, and did not see anything antisemitic about it what so ever. Yeah, the anti-government element is central to the theme, but so what?

It's entertainment, just an action suspense story. I liked the movie because it affirmed positive a father daughter family relationship, and did not have a bunch of sex and degenerate overtones. Just my take.

Oh. I guess that explains that headline I read today that maybe Mel should be forgiven. I didn’t read further but after seeing this now it makes sense. He made a movie bashing America so of course the Left would forgive. Not that they hated him for the anti-semitic slurs noooo....The Passion of the Christ was why they hated him. The Jew slurs were just a convenient excuse to send him packing.
