Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 10/01/1997
"...[THE EDGE] exhibits a restrained literateness that's quite effective..."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/1998
"...THE EDGE boasts some awesome effects..."
USA Today - 09/26/1997
"...Great bear. Great Hopkins...
New York Times - 09/26/1997
"...A barbed, great-looking adventure film written cannily by David Mamet and directed with verve and fury by Lee Tamahori..."
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
Premiere - 05/11/2010
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."
