On the Edge is a 2002 American action-thriller film directed by Fred Williamson and starring Gary Busey, Bernie Casey, and Fred Williamson. The film opens with a man named Paul Sharpe (Fred Williamson) who is a retired cop living in Mexico. He is visited by his old partner on the force, Gerry Nivens (Gary Busey), who is now a private investigator. Nivens requests Sharpe's help in tracking down a notorious drug lord named Gabriel Caine (Bernie Casey) who has escaped from prison and returned to the United States.

Sharpe agrees to help, and the two head to Los Angeles to start their investigation. They encounter a number of obstacles, including corrupt cops and dangerous gang members. As they dig deeper into Caine's criminal empire, they start to uncover a web of deceit and betrayal that threatens to engulf them both.

Along the way, Sharpe and Nivens team up with a group of street-smart kids who have been victimized by Caine's gang. The kids are fiercely loyal to each other and determined to take down the drug lord, and Sharpe and Nivens find themselves drawn into their cause.

The action in On the Edge is fast-paced and intense, with plenty of gun fights and car chases to keep the audience on the edge of their seats. But what really sets the film apart is the strong performances from its three leads. Williamson is stoic and cool as Sharpe, while Busey is manic and unpredictable as Nivens. Casey is a menacing presence as Caine, exuding charisma and danger in equal measure.

Despite its familiar plot and genre trappings, On the Edge manages to deliver plenty of thrills and excitement. It's a slick, entertaining action movie that will appeal to fans of the genre.

On the Edge is a 2002 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 37 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.0.
