recommend afew glasses no bottles of wine before viewing..By a customer from uk , 31 Jan 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]I dont know where to start really ..it was utter tripe. The biggest surprise was Justin Timberlake, he was quite convincing , not a bad actor really. if this was his first ever movie then he has a legit excuse ..as for Morgan Freeman .. well he hasnt he was just as bad as L L cool j. If a film has morgan freeman in i usually see who he is co-staring.. i think he is over rated personnally. Dont get me wrong he has done afew good films ..shawshank/ bruce almighty etc. As for dylan mc wots his face well just what i expected from him.. the whole film came across as lazy script , predictable ,made me cringe seeing morgan freeman dance lol .. ll cool j went to same 'old school' of acting as Ice T ..yep so if u are easily pleased and want to kill 90 mins then this is for you. Oh i forgot to mention Kevin Spacey .. well if you look past the boot polished wig he has on then you can see he is well over rated as an actor too ...still like him American Beauty /Usual suspects, but K-pax?? ..
If u want to watch a better movie about crooked cops ..and still have a rapper/some1 from the music business etc then rent out ..Narc (2002): Jason Patric, Ray Liotta, Busta Rhymes .. thats alot better than Edison.

Finally a movie worth watching!By a customer , 22 May 2011This movie is great, you get into it right from the start. It has also an amazing number of famous actors. I was extremely surprised to see how well Justin Timberlake acted, well done! The only thing I did not like about this movie is how quick certain things happened: it is as if some important scenes had been cut off. Nevertheless, it is still very much enjoyable!

Cool Timberlake!By tallan (60 reviews) from Hampton, England , 12 Apr 2011You expect good acting from the likes of Morgan Freeman and Kevin Spacey, but LL Cool J and Justin Timberlake are a real revelation! A bit confusing in parts, possibly because it is rather far-fetched and I found it difficult to see where Spacey's character fitted in. However, on second viewing all became clear, and the fact that it stood up to a second viewing suggests that it was worthwhile watching in the first place!
not bad!!By a customer from London , 11 Apr 2011Not bad film - Its great film!!
Such a wasteBy Chantal (1129 reviews) from London , 24 Feb 2011Great well known actors, poor story. If you haven't heard it all before or are a Justin fan then don't bother. I was bored senseless. The only good bit is at the very end but by then you migh have given up watching.
Edison (2005)By a customer from London, England , 01 Feb 2011Crooked cops and politicians against good cop, journalist, and investigator! Predictable story, easy to work out the plot, but well shot and acted. An enjoyable 99 minutes. Justin Timberlake was better than expected.
