Man on a Ledge

Overall Rating: 5 out of 10 Based on 1 Review

An ex-cop turned con threatens to jump to his death from a Manhattan hotel rooftop. The nearest New York Police officer immediately responds to a screaming woman and calls dispatch. More Officers arrive with SWAT and tactical command along with fire-fighters. The police then dispatches a female police psychologist personally requested to talk him down from the ledge. However, things aren't as straightforward and clearcut as they appear to be.

    Pros:

    At times a taught exciting thriller with some surprising twists and turns especially in the first half of the film. Great action and comedy moments from Jamie Bell are it's saving grace.

    Cons:

    When the main character is on a building ledge for over half the movie it can get a little boring. Sam Worthington is stifled by his limited surrroundings and finds it hard to rise above them.

    Overall:

    Has the makings of a top, edge of your seat thriller but just falls short. Unfortunately the few story twists and comedy it does contain can't bring it up to speed. This kind of story has been done far more successfully with "The Negotiator". A good effort though for a easily watchable, escapist entertainment.
