Synopsis:
'The Revenant' meets 'Last of the Mohicans', 'Edge of the World' is an epic, swashbuckling adventure story that inspired 'The Man Who Would Be King' and 'Apocalypse Now'. Starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors) as Sir James Brook, the English adventurer who fought pirates and slavery to rule a kingdom in the jungles of Borneo in 1840. As he embarks on a lifelong crusade to end head-hunting, like Lawrence of Arabia, Brooke defied the Empire to free a nation.

Unrelentingly dull - Edge of the World review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
06/07/2021

You know those historical documentaries with dramatised reconstructions that never seem real? This whole film is like a series of those reconstructions… plus a laughably sonorous voiceover to fill in the gaps. Little plot, cardboard characters, risible dialogue, phone-in acting, bland direction.

It’s billed as ‘a swashbuckling adventure’. If only. There’s a woke message here as real-life Victorian adventurer Sir James Brook boats through the Borneo jungle fighting slavery, but few will care. Apparently his story inspired Apocalypse Now. If only art-house director Michael Haussman had binge-watched Apocalypse Now to find inspiration for this turgid art-house drama.
