Movie Reviews

  • while it might not knock it out of the park, “Edge of the World” is still a very solid watch if a little slow-going and might also just inspire you to revisit some of the classics its indebted to which is its own small triumph
    2.5 of 4 by Lindsey Bahr [Associated Press ]
  • unfortunately, this leads to a labored voice-over that adds little more than exposition, along with a slightly hurried opening and a plot that becomes muddled in places
    2 of 5 by Alistair Lawrence [Common Sense Media ]
  • the result is a film with an interesting story which doesn't exactly do anything wrong yet, despite some great moments, falls some way short of its potential; Still, it's a bold attempt to revive a style which retains the ability to thrill
    2 of 5 by Jennie Kermode [Eye for Film (UK) ]
  • if the film can't help but feel like a relic from a bygone era, that's ultimately part of its appeal -- the sun may have finally set on the British Empire, but at least it hasn't yet set on this mode of storytelling
    by Michael Nordine [Variety ]
  • earnestly directed by Michael Haussman from Rob Allyn's awed script, "Edge of the World' plugs its narrative gaps with corn and cliche
    by Jeannette Catsoulis [New York Times ]
  • despite pacing issues, the film is a good look at imperialism and the mind of "the white Rajah"; if you are looking for phenomenal jungle footage and an evening of analyzing the personal conflict of colonization, "Edge of the World" is a solid watch
    3.5 of 5 by Josiah Teal [Film Threat ]
  • as a story with the self-awareness to ask questions about the relationship between British exploration and the men who served as agents of it, Edge of the World offers an intriguing history lesson in a well-acted and uniquely beautiful package
    3.5 of 5 by Todd Gilchrist [What to Watch ]
  • a historical epic that isn't afraid to take its time, Edge of the World is held together by a fantastic central performance by Jonathan Rhys-Meyers and a beautifully brutal climax
    4 of 5 by Kat Hughes [The Hollywood News ]
  • "Edge of the World" is a familiar-feeling period drama that owes a debt to Terrence Malick, but it's far from the worst example of such things
    3 of 5 by Jonathan Wilson [Ready Steady Cut ]
