    While the film was in production, some people speculated it was based upon the title of the film and the limited story details with corrupt officers that the film was based upon the New Jersey township of Edison, since the township's recent (as of that time) controversy involving its police force. Writer and film director David J. Burke claimed that the name "Edison" was derived from its common association with the inventor and business leader Thomas Edison, which led to thoughts of "electricity, power and industry."

    Release

    The film was originally supposed to see a US release in the spring of 2005; however, due to its poor reviews from critics after its screening at the Toronto International Film Festival, its release to cinemas in the US and most other countries was cancelled. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released the film, originally titled Edison, as Edison Force, direct–to–video on July 18, 2006. The film was released in theaters in Netherlands on March 12, 2006.

    Reception

    Based on six reviews, Edison has an average score of 2.5/10 on Rotten Tomatoes.

    When in September 2017 Kevin Spacey, one of the main actors in the film, was asked to name a bad movie he starred in, Spacey said "Edison."
