Synopsis 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)....[THE EDGE] exhibits a restrained literateness that's quite effective......THE EDGE boasts some awesome effects......Great bear. Great Hopkins......A barbed, great-looking adventure film written cannily by David Mamet and directed with verve and fury by Lee Tamahori......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......THE EDGE's fusion of Mametspeak with a true life adventure remains brawny entertainment......It's subtly funny in the way it toys with the cliches of the genre....The movie contains glorious scenery...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: B4 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.
