Plot Summary

A grisly homicide... a sensational trial... a forbidden affair it's Jagged Edge, a razor-sharp suspense thriller about crime, punishment and passion. Jeff Bridges is the prime suspect and Glenn Close plays the attorney who falls in love with him. When a San Francisco socialite is viciously murdered, her publisher-husband, Jack Forrester (Bridges), is accused of committing the crime. Teddy Barnes (Close) decides to defend the charming, manipulative Jack, only to disregard legal ethics by having an affair with him. With the help of private eye Sam Ranssome (Robert Loggia), she takes on a ruthless D.A. (Peter Coyote) who's using the case as a political stepping stone. However, a startling revelation puts Teddy in jeopardy of becoming the next victim of the Jagged Edge.

Rotten: 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. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: A well-crafted, hardboiled mystery. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Supremely effective. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Like many entries into the genre, Jagged Edge works best when it's watched with a minimum of analysis. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Feb 11, 2008

great suspense movie

great movie, with great actors

Loved this movie

I saw this movie when it originally came out, and it is fantastic. Jeff Bridges has always been one of my favorite actors, and he does a great job, as always. Glenn Close is wonderful, too. Suspenseful. Good story.

Eh.

Its saving grace is the performances by Close and Bridges. Otherwise, this one's pretty pedestrian, even though a grisly murderous one.
