The Edge

Alec Baldwin tries to kill Anthony Hopkins at the end but falls into a bear-trap and gets mortally wounded. He dies before Hopkins can get help. Hopkins tells the press at the end that Baldwin died saving his life.

Continuity mistake: In one of the scenes Hopkins is trying to make what I think is a fish hook or something. He's obviously been in the wilderness for a while so he's not clean shaven but he isn't exactly beardy either. However, during the scene with this fish hook his beard changes from moderate to bushy to moderate again within seconds.

Charles Morse: We're all put to the test... but it never comes in the form or at the point we would prefer, does it?

Question: If Charles was so smart, why didn't he think to make a bow with arrows to kill the bear instead of spears? They had the wood (the spears) and the rope (used in the trap).

Chosen answer: Bows have to be quite carefully constructed if they're going to be remotely effective - you can't just throw one together using a few bits of wood and some rope. Making spears may expose them to far more danger, but, given what they've got to work with, they represent the best chance of being effective against the bear.
