The Edge (1996)

Lee Tamahori directs Anthony Hopkins, Alec Baldwin and Bart the Bear in this adventure movie where, after a plane crash, a bookish billionaire and the man he suspects is sleeping with his supermodel wife are chased through the wilderness by a ferocious bear.

Hopkins trying to dial back the ham + a fantastic animal performance x David Mamet script = Hopkins eventually exploding “Today, I’m-a-gonna-kill the mutha fucka.” Daft and pretentious in equal measures yet in its purest moments, very engaging.
