Does not really grab the attention

This film is not a remake of Michael Powell's 1937 masterpiece about life on a Scottish island. This "Edge of the World" is an adventure drama about the British soldier and adventurer James Brooke (1803-1868) who helped the Sultan of Brunei put down a local rebellion and was rewarded by being made Rajah of Sarawak. (Brooke's adventures may have inspired Rudyard Kipling's story "The Man Who Would Be King"). Brooke's rule was notable for his campaigns against slavery and piracy, and he and his successors ruled Sarawak for a century until it became a British Colony in the aftermath of World War II. This was the first film to be made of his life, although one, provisionally entitled "The White Rajah" and intended to star Errol Flynn, was projected in the 1930s. In the event, however, it was never made. The film makes some changes to Brooke's story; for example, his nephew and ultimate successor as Rajah, Charles, accompanies him on his journeys and is portrayed as a junior naval officer and a young man in his twenties. In fact, at the time of the events portrayed here Charles would still have been a schoolboy aged eleven or twelve; he did not travel to Borneo until ten years later. Brooke's former fiancée Elizabeth Crookshank, whom he meets again in Borneo, appears to be an invented character. Brooke's adventures contain enough material for a very good film, but this is not really it. My objections are not political; those who criticise the film for its alleged "white saviour narrative" overlook the fact that it is based upon historical fact and that Brooke really did rise to power in the way shown here. The part of Brooke, however, really demands a swashbuckling hero like Flynn or (given that we don't really do swashbuckling in the twenty-first century) at least someone more dynamic than Jonathan Rhys Meyers. His interpretation of the role struck me as too introspective and angst-ridden, not the sort of person one could ever imagine seizing a kingdom for himself. This is not a bad film, and can make for enjoyable watching by anyone who likes historical adventures, but it does not really grab your attention. 6/10.

Mediocre

Feels like watching Lawrence of Arabia with severe budget cuts. The movie fails to reach any great heights, telling a story about one more nutjob going troppo in the forest!

Another worst film! Too slow, and full of annoying overuse scene! Bored to freaking death!

This film start with a bunch of people arriving at the island with a boat, and they found a dead animal body scene! As turnout, this film is about a man crown by Sultan of Brunei to be the ruler of Sarawak(Sir James Brooke) need to take revenge on Pengiran Indera Mahkota for the death of his cousin "Arthur"! Entire film full of boring conversation, and annoying overuse scene! Such as, overuse of the narration scene, overuse of the walking scene, overuse of the arguing scene, overuse of the calling names scene, overuse of the staring scene, overuse of the drinking scene, and overuse of the eating scene! Make the film unwatchable! All the killing scene have blood at certain point, but overall portray by sideways, and just show the head after the killing! Make the film frustrated to watch! At the end, Sir James Brooke slice Pengiran Indera Mahkota head off to kill him! That's it! Another disappointed film!
