The biggest fault of Jagged Edge is that whatever suspense it manages to generate in its climactic scenes is achieved artificially, through tricky editing and manipulative ''danger'' music.
A well-crafted, hardboiled mystery.
The wholesome cast completely obliterates the unstated perversities that have been this genre's reason for being.
These days it is almost unheard of for a movie to keep you guessing until the last frame, but this one does, partly because Marquand plays it so beautifully straight.
The screenplay, by Joe Eszterhas, does what it can to throw up a smokescreen, but the audience will probably be well ahead of the story's final resolution.
Like many entries into the genre, Jagged Edge works best when it's watched with a minimum of analysis.
Slick and manipulative, Jagged Edge is nonetheless a vastly enjoyable psychological thriller due to the expert turns from Jeff Bridges, Glenn Close, and Robert Loggia, who won a Supporting Actor Oscar nod for his role.
Expertly conceived and executed.
No cutting edge, but does keep you guessing.
An exciting "whodunit" that fits in with the sensational crimes reported in the tabloids.
Slick, unsatisfying silliness
So-so thriller that's finally pretty unintentionally funny.
A suspenseful thriller/drama, Jagged Edge didn't blow me away but it kept me guessing until the end and it's worth watching if you enjoy murder mysteries.
A great, tense and violent thriller as a laywer defends a man accused of killing his wife.....and starts to fall for him herself.
The whole selling point of this film at the time was it's "shock" ending. Which is so unbelievably predictable, a 2 year old could guess it. A waste of time.
A glossy thriller.
