Nathaniel M (kr) wrote: While colorful, I have to knock points off for it trying too hard to be artsy. Still, really well put together for a directorial debut. The moral of the story was also a bit on the nose.Really enjoy Sam Rockwell, he is the big reason I didn't turn if off.

Sonny L (ca) wrote: Hur Jin-ho does it time and time again. Keeps to the fundamentals to create a masterpiece. Loved the dialogue, so simple yet so effective. This film is not what you normally expect from a drama/romance, but that's what's so captivating about it. Not much more can be said about this, except one important quote: "feelings of love would fade like old photographs". Watch it and think about it, the ending does spawn a debate.

Alexander C (nl) wrote: It's Die Hard on a plane in this action thriller, starring Wesley Snipes.

Lee M (gb) wrote: Slow and crushing, a heavy film that has a simple plot, a despairing tone and none of the ostentatious "acting" often evinced in Nicholson's later career.

Knox M (ru) wrote: Early morning. It's still dark. Rain plummets outside. The remains of a violent murder lay untouched. Detectives walk in and out of the building with coffee. This is the daily grind.This is the kind of atmosphere established in the first five minutes of Jagged Edge, a movie with a screenplay built like a thriller, textured like a noir, and laced with eroticism. For these reasons the movie is usually criticized as "manipulative," but this is actually why the movie works so well. No, as a critic I hate manipulative movies but if by the end I've realized that I MYSELF have been manipulated, even I know I have just seen a good (sometimes great) movie. We go to the cinema to laugh, cry, smile, and be sucked in the whole time. This is why Jagged Edge works. And no, this movie is not just about that. In fact, its more authentically perfect facet is in it's performances. Jeff Bridges underplays his character with such precision that throughout the movie you can't tell if he's a tortured soul or happy bastard, and this is all by his facial expressions. Glenn Close is just as excellent; she remains so perfectly womanly but her presence is like dynamite in a gasoline tank. She's conflicted & melancholy, despite not having much to be conflicted about, except the fact that returning to her job as a lawyer causes an emotional uplift in her life. One of the best scenes in the film is when the Bridges character storms out of his widow's room, and the camera lingers on Close for longer than usual. The sound of the rain cancels out everything. This is the personification of sadness. The director, Richard Marquand, knew that the sound would enhance the moment, but I doubt anyone knew how allegorical it is. Highly recommended for people who have ever thought about wanting to see a courtroom-drama remake of Body Heat directed by Brian De Palma. Be on the lookout for a Return of the Jedi poster, for which was also directed by Marquand.

Somehow, the film reminds me of "Snow White and the seven dwarfs".
