When their plane crashes in the Alaskan wilderness, billionaire Charles (Hopkins) and photographer Robert (Baldwin) hatch a plan to return to civilization.

Succeeds ably in blending his famously acerbic dialogue with nerve-racking adventure scenes.

It's subtly funny in the way it toys with the cliches of the genre.

...The Edge's fusion of Mametspeak with a true life adventure remains brawny entertainment, even it it is difficult to take as seriously as the filmmakers intend.

There is a lot to enjoy here. Tamahori's second Hollywood outing is economically directed, the scenery is spectacular and beautifully shot by Donald M. McAlpine and the initial air crash rivals Alive for its sudden, chaotic realism.
