Movie Reviews

THE EDGE *not* anamorphic
Marlowe7 | Syracuse, NY United States | 02/14/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Despite what the specs on the back of the case say, THE EDGE is the same disc as the previous single disc release, i.e., 2:35:1 non-anamorphic. This is misleading and extremely disappointing. I picked this up at Circuit City thinking 20th Century had finally gotten their act together and given this outstanding film the presentation it deserved. I was wrong, now I'm stuck with a DVD I don't want that the store won't refund because it's open. Thanks, Fox Video, for overpaying some nitwit graphic artist who doesn't know what an anamorphic DVD is, and cheating me out of $10.00."
5 stars for Bart the Bear, zero for Alec
S. Benedict | Manhattan, KS | 05/13/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm not a fan of Alec Baldwin, in fact I don't want to support any garbage he is in. However, this movie was GREAT mainly for Bart the Bear and Anthony Hopkins. The acting wasn't the best, but the film had some great scenery. Hard to believe that Bart the Bear was really a kind bear...that's just how good of an actor Bart the Bear was (if only Alec Baldwin would have learned a thing or two from Bart people wouldn't think he was an annoying actor). Older children and adults will love this movie, but don't buy it if you think the acting is good. The only thing missing here was Youk the Bear! Enjoy"
A Well Balanced Two for One
Solid Snake | right behind you | 11/04/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Normally when you get a two'fer like this, one film is so bad that bundling it with a decent film is the only way they can get people to buy it. I bought this DVD for 'The Edge' and was pleasantly surprised to find that 'Tigerland' was no slouch either.

Both films have plenty of action but their real strength lies in their examination of the human will and the psychological strength required to survive adversity.

Of the two, Tigerland is more contemplative and philosophical, focusing a majority of its energy on the ruinous aspects of state sponsored violence, i.e. warfare. Some will find it preachy, but Ferrell turns in an engaging performance and the supporting cast is strong.

Edge is less complicated but certainly more intense. A classic tale of survival, it pits Hopkins and Baldwin against a fearsome man-eating grizzly in the remote wilds of Alaska. The physical menace is paralleled by a growing sense of distrust between the two even as they rely on each other more and more to survive. Hopkins does a great job as always, but Baldwin is outclassed by the Bear.

A good bargain for two well matched and well made films."
