Film Threat - Josiah Teal
Despite pacing issues, the film is a good look at imperialism and the mind of “the white Rajah.” The beautiful locations give the film an ambiance of mystery and adventure.

The Associated Press - Lindsey Bahr
While it might not knock it out of the park, Edge of the World is still a very solid watch if a little slow-going and might also just inspire you to revisit some of the classics its indebted to which is its own small triumph.

Variety - Michael Nordine
Where Edge of the World distinguishes itself is in its evocative visuals of Borneo’s unspoiled beauty (courtesy of cinematographer Jaime Feliu-Torres) and the lived-in intensity of Meyers. If the film can’t help but feel like a relic from a bygone era, that’s ultimately part of its appeal.

The Guardian - Phuong Le
Edge of the World fails to do justice to this fascinating and deeply complex chapter in British colonial history.

The New York Times - Jeannette Catsoulis
Edge of the World plugs its narrative gaps with corn and cliché.
