Reviews:
"...[THE EDGE] exhibits a restrained literateness that's quite effective..." - 10/01/1997 Box Office, p.42


"...THE EDGE boasts some awesome effects..." - 02/01/1998 Sight and Sound, p.41


"...Great bear. Great Hopkins... - 09/26/1997 USA Today, p.6D


"...A barbed, great-looking adventure film written cannily by David Mamet and directed with verve and fury by Lee Tamahori..." - 09/26/1997 New York Times, p.E10


"...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..." - 10/03/1997 Entertainment Weekly, p.52-3


"...THE EDGE's fusion of Mametspeak with a true life adventure remains brawny entertainment..." - 09/26/1997 Los Angeles Times, p.F4


"...It's subtly funny in the way it toys with the cliches of the genre....The movie contains glorious scenery..." - 09/26/1997 Chicago Sun-Times, p.37


"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 - 05/26/2010 A.V. Club


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." - 05/11/2010 Premiere
