Man on a Ledge Reviews:

As you'd expect, "Man on a Ledge" is a Swiss-cheese plotted heist and "prove his innocence" film but taken as just that, it's quite an enjoyable movie. I suppose after having seen enough of these kinds of movies, I shouldn't expect perfection in how each plot thread is tied up since very several films manage it. However, what the film does excellently is setup the plot and build up the case perfectly. Just starting as a literal boy on a ledge, we see subtle layers added until we receive this full on crescendo of diamond heists, negotiators, cops, convicts, terrible guys, nice guys all event on in a single block in Fresh York. So, given that you're willing to suppress your tingling plot-hole sense, it can be an enjoyable movie.The cast is quite nice and the acting and tension is par for the course. The leads Sam Worthington and Elizabeth Banks do a nice job. Seeing Worthington as an ex-NY cop, ex-convict and Banks as a negotiator/psychologist with a past is surprising on paper but they manage to pull it off very well. However, Jamie Bell is one of the heist-team but his opposite who plays Angie create for some cringe-worthy comedy, like some Sofia Vergara slapstick in the middle of a tense situation. Ed Harris looks emaciated but equally sinister as the villain and there are a host another minor NY characters.I can hear the Hollywood pitch for the film in my head, "it's like The Negotiator combined with The Italian Job but happens in NY and instead of a hostage case we have a jumper." And, essentially it's just that – a film that heavily recalls another films from the past except perhaps for the boy on ledge. On a side note, it seems that each NY film nowadays has a reference to the OWS movement and what a typical OWS protester might look like.The film is at its greatest when it clamors for our character who desperate and is fighting all odds to clear his name as he shouts from his ledge, "I am innocent and this is my retrial." The film is at its worst when it's ungainly roping in all the plot threads it cast out but can't seem to place it together. Overall, it's a nice enough film for folks who like these kinds of movies. If you've caught yourself bitterly berating the many plot holes in heist movies, maybe this isn't for you.


In Sing Sing Correctional Facility, the ex-cop Nickname Cassidy (Sam Worthington) is informed that his appeal was denied by the court. When his father dies, Nickname has authorization to go to the funeral escorted by two policemen. However, he has a war with his estranged brother Joey Cassidy (Jamie Bell) and Nickname subdues the police officers and escape. Nickname lodges at the 21st floor of the Roosevelt Hotel in Fresh York and he goes to the ledge through the window and threatens to jump on the floor, attracting a crowd on the street. The negotiator Lydia Mercer (Elizabeth Banks) is assigned to convince the unknown jumper to give up of his intention. Meanwhile Joey and his girlfriend Angela Maria 'Angie' Lopez (Genesis Rodriguez) breaks in the jewelry owned by the strong David Englander (Ed Harris). Nickname claims innocence to Lydia and asks her to give more time to him since he will prove that he is innocent. Lydia believes that Nickname is honest or lunatic and decides to investigate his information."Man on a Ledge" is an entertaining action-thriller with a nice cast. The storyline has the usual plot holes and unrealistic situations, but that is the funniest part of this kind of movie. The unknown Genesis Rodriguez is a very pretty actress and my tip to the readers is to disregard the terrible reviews and play this nice film. My vote is seven.Title (Brazil): "À Beira do Abismo" ("On the Edge of the Abyss")


I had seen one preview for this film, and it didn't appeal to me at all. Even the game seemed fully unimaginative, like it was a shortened elevator pitch. However, I had a possibility to see it as a sneak preview, and I thought, "Well, you can't go terribly wrong with Jamie Bell, Anthony Mackie, and Ed Harris, and I haven't seen Ed Burns in anything for awhile. Besides, it's free. What the heck?"Well, the film was, on occasion, type of ridiculous, and it had a typically predictable ending. Also, Sam Worthington couldn't maintain his American accent; whenever he started yelling, he sounded very Australian. Still, the film has more strengths than weaknesses, and I even had a couple of gasps and then relieved relaxes. Certainly not the greatest action film I've seen, but far from the worst either. It's a decent popcorn flick, a nice option if you wish a film that isn't fully mindless but doesn't create your brain harm either.
