Audience Reviews for Jagged Edge

    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.

    Glen Close plays an unethical, client-fucking attorney who defends a newspaper mogul accused of stabbing his wife, then begins to suspect her client after he seduces - after she seduces -after they seduce each other. Soooo dreadfully Eszterhaz predictable. Saw the end coming 2/3 of the way through. (Which is probably way later than most people -I'm slow.) Fun Fact: Glen Close actually looks semi-female in this pic. Which is essential for the film to have any credibility, otherwise, who would believe Jeff Bridges would dip his wick in THAT???

    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.
