After reaching Jack Hawk's (Gordon Tootoosis') empty cabin, and after convincing Morse (Sir Anthony Hopkins) to fly further to Big Bass Lake in search of Hawk, Green (Alec Baldwin) exclaims elatedly, "There's the spirit that beat the Japanese!" Alec Baldwin played Lieutenant Colonel James Doolittle, who planned and led the counter-strike against the Japanese in Pearl Harbor (2001). See more »
When Morse and Styles are talking in the cabin, Morse is seen walking away with Styles. In the next shot, Morse isn't seen; instead his wife, Mickey, is walking away with Styles. See more »
[after successfully fighting a bear]
For all my life, I've have wanted to do something that was, um, that was unequivocal.
Well, Charlie, I certainly think this qualifies.
See, Charles, that's why they call it personal growth. A month ago, old Smokey here would've reared up, you probably would've called your lawyer!
Nah, I wouldn't do that to an animal.

Just before the end credits start rolling, a caption appears on the screen: "Twentieth Century Fox and the producer wish to thank Bart the Bear and his trainer Doug Seus, for their contribution to this film." See more »
I first saw this movie in 97 when it first came out.I had barely heard of Baldwin,Hopkins or Perrineau.It turned out to be one of those movies I sat on the "edge" of my seat and was stunned by the ending.I sat there,mouth agape.I found I had a deep respect for all three actors.This movie,in every discernible way,is a masterpiece.The cinematography is breathtaking.The musical score is one of the most beautiful themes I have ever heard.The plot is smooth and the acting superb.I had heard of Baldwin but had not thought he was a great actor until seeing The Edge.Hopkins has made some great movies but this one..well it my personal favorite.The subtleties are numerous,the suspense captivating and the message is profound.The bear is without a doubt frightening and primal.This movie evoked emotions in me that were also primal.And the ending? It is the best ending to any movie I have ever seen.Perhaps you might have to appreciate the complexities of human nature as well as the action sequences in The Edge to get the most out of the viewing experience.It truly is the best of both worlds.
