Man on a Ledge (Film Review)


Man_on_a_Ledge_PosterPlot

Wrongly convicted, an ex-cop tries to prove his innocence in the simplest way possible, by standing on a ledge ready to jump. With the help of his brother and his brother’s girlfriend, this ex-cop might just have a chance of getting his life back.

Pros

The acting is on the better side of decent, but not by much. Sam Worthington, Jamie Bell and Elizabeth Banks are good actors, and I think it might be the writing or directing that led to the decent performances. Either that or the actors just weren’t giving 100% percent. The story is interesting and well executed, though it was a bit dull at some points. It felt like they were building suspense at points and it led to a bit of dragging in the story. The end, last 20 minutes, is pretty good.

Cons

Nothing too big in the mistakes department, that being said, there was nothing really good either. I could almost copy and paste the Pros section here because everything is just right down the middle for me.

Fun Fact: The actors were hooked to wires to film all the scenes on the ledge. The wires were either well hidden or edited out.

  1. I had a fun time but at the same time, I can’t really lie and say that I didn’t know what was going to happen next. The cast also tries their hardest but I almost felt like they were all second-choices here as well and nobody really rises above the material as the true stand-out. Good review Austin.
