June 12, 2013
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.
December 15, 2010
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.

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.

An exciting "whodunit" that fits in with the sensational crimes reported in the tabloids.

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.

Instead of a compelling and tense movie, we get a disappointing exercise in Hollywood cliché.
