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.

Oh please... the worst movie ever?? Not even close. Any movie with Spacey and Freeman can't be all that bad. McDermott was actually pretty good. His 'bad boy cop' routine worked and LL Cool Jay was even OK as his partner. Nothing special but come on. Worst movie? You obviously don't see that many!
Bad cops vs cub reporter / aging veteran reporter. Not the most original story but there were enough action scenes to keep me interested and with the exception of Timberlake, the acting was good and the directing was quick and clean.
The worst part of the movie was Spaceys wig.
Last night me and my friends were lucky enough to catch Edison, which to my understanding was not even released anywhere yet!! We decided to go to see the movie after reading that is was Justin Timberlake's first acting performance and I must say that we were pleasantly surprised. Next to cinematic giants Kevin Spacey and Morgan Freeman, Timberlake gives a persuasive realization of a struggling young journalist. The action is great throughout the film. Dylan McDermott gives a very strong performance as Lazerov, the corrupted cop. This film is not only for Justin Timberlake's fans but to any one looking for a good movie experience.
