Entertainment Weekly - 10/03/1997
"...The well-matched actors grab their parts with disciplined ferocity. Baldwin does his best work in a long time....And Hopkins creates one of his most satisfying, complex characters..."
Los Angeles Times - 09/26/1997
"...THE EDGE's fusion of Mametspeak with a true life adventure remains brawny entertainment..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 09/26/1997
"...It's subtly funny in the way it toys with the cliches of the genre....The movie contains glorious scenery..."
A.V. Club - 05/26/2010
"Hopkins does fine work as a billionaire stranded in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness with a smarmy photographer, played by Alec Baldwin....THE EDGE is an interesting footnote in the Mamet canon..." -- Grade: B

4 stars out of 4 -- "Brilliantly written by David Mamet, and beautifully directed by Lee Tamahori, it's thought-provoking, quotable, and worthy of endless analysis."
An aging billionaire (Hopkins) and a fashion photographer (Baldwin) having an affair with the rich man's wife must struggle against the elements--including a man-eating bear--after their plane goes down in the Alaskan wild. An unusually dense and cerebral wilderness thriller, penned by literatus David Mamet and helmed by Tamahori (ONCE WERE WARRIORS).
