Excellent mystery-thriller
14 June 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

I taped Edge of Eternity when Channel 4 screened it some time ago and found it very enjoyable. Some reviews state this as a Western, but it is more of a mystery-thriller than a Western.

A Sheriff in Arizona investigates three murders around the Grand Canyon and is help by a woman and not surprisingly they fall in love with each other. The killer then takes the woman hostage and he is caught in the dramatic final showdown in a minor's bucket, high over the Grand Canyon.

Edge of Eternity has some magnificent scenery. especially the Grand Canyon scenes.

The cast is lead by Cornel Wilde as the Sheriff, Victoria Shaw as his love interest and Micky Shaughnessy. All play good parts.

This movie is a must see, just for the scenery. Excellent.

Rating: 3 and a half stars out of 5.
