  • Critic Reviews
    "...[THE EDGE] exhibits a restrained literateness that's quite effective..."
    Box Office

    "...THE EDGE boasts some awesome effects..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...Great bear. Great Hopkins...
    USA Today

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

    "...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..."
    Entertainment Weekly

    "...THE EDGE's fusion of Mametspeak with a true life adventure remains brawny entertainment..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...It's subtly funny in the way it toys with the cliches of the genre....The movie contains glorious scenery..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "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
    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."
