Synopsis


The Edge
Billionaire Charles Morse (Anthony Hopkins) accompanies his much-younger wife Mickey (Elle Macpherson) and a fashion photography team headed by Bob Green (Alec Baldwin) to a remote lodge in Alaska. Charles is a quiet, introspective man, fond of accumulating trivia and other facts in his encyclopedic mind; he is also troubled with the idea that Bob and Mickey may be lovers. Even though he suspects the younger man plans to kill him, Charles goes with Bob and his assistant Stephen (Harold Perrineau) on an airplane trip to find a photogenic friend (Gordon Tootoosis) of the lodge owner (L.Q. Jones), but the plane crashes in a lake, killing the pilot. The crash is miles from their planned path, so they can't expect to be spotted by an aerial search; there's only one chance: they have to walk to a more likely spot.Though Robert and Stephan are more physically fit, Charles' calm wit and ingenuity proves the key to their survival, especially after a ferocious bear brutally kills Stephen. Robert and Charles' odyssey becomes more urgent when they discover that the bear is now stalking them. ~ Bill Warren, Rovi

    I had seen this movie years ago and I really enjoyed it. When I found out that it had been offered on Blu Ray I had to get it! This movie makes you think, it has a really good cast in it as well as a pretty strong storyline as well. If you’re into adventure/thriller movies you should definitely check this one out!!

    This is an outstanding story within a story as 3 city guys crash land in the Alaska wilderness. One guy wants to kill the billionaire for his wife while another is attacked by a Kodiak bear. The bear continues to track the other two until a stand your ground fight settles the stalking. Freezing temperatures and beautiful scenery helps make this a movie you could watch over and over.

    This movie is an excellent outdoor adventure, taking place in Alaska. Hopkins portrayal of a billionaire is dead on- most of them are probably far from carefree and happy. His pensive character is very believable. Baldwin's character is a perfect antagonist for Hopkins. He holds little regard for Hopkins. The scenery and action scenes are great. Very much worth seeing and showing friends.

    This is one of those movies that I watched a few years ago, and remembered that it was a good movie, so I wanted to own it for my video library. Both Hopkins and Baldwin give good performances. This movie with keep you watching and holds some surprises. I would definately recommend it.

    I really liked this movie and the panoramic aerial views of the north country. They shot this movie in the province of Alberta Canada.It is a movie of survival that involves 3 people that have no outdoor knowledge.
