Man on a Ledge Reviews

Jeff Beck

"Man on a Ledge" is not a film that will change the way we look at thrillers, but it is a film that has enough thrills to provide for a very entertaining ride

The fact that it works is nothing short of a miracle. ... The balance between genuine threat and B-Movie silliness is just about right.

R. L. Shaffer

Certainly enjoyable and occasionally tense despite some wobbly performances and plot holes.

Man on a Ledge isn't a caper comedy. It's a heist picture, a thriller -- and a not-that-thrilling one at that. But the folks who made it have enough of a sense of humor to get how silly it is and run with that on occasion.

Here, Leth makes Worthington's ledge a constantly frightening gimmick and the pacing between scenes is so effective, you'd be on the edge of your seat if the film didn't constantly make you feel for the back of your chair.

From minute to minute it's ingenious, gripping stuff...

There's something endearingly deranged about Ed Harris's performance as a conniving businessman ( ... ) perhaps he realised that the film wasn't going to be as good as we hoped and that he might as well pretend he was related to John Malkovich.

It doesn't spend enough time on its ledge to be the definitive 'jumper' movie the title promises, but it's a hoot if approached in the proper mood.

A joyfully silly thriller that won't win any awards for subtlety, but it already knows that.

Enjoyment of Man On A Ledge largely depends on whether you can suspend your disbelief from 21 storeys without it crashing to the ground.

Blunders aside, this is an otherwise enjoyably ridiculous caper...

Man On a Ledge might look like another preposterous heist thriller, but it's really a topical wish-fulfilment fantasy, in which the common man gets sweet revenge on the unscrupulous wealthy elite.

Movie Talk

Vertigo sufferers and sticklers for plausibility will want to give Man on a Ledge a miss, but if you've a head for heights and a nonchalance about gimmicky plots then you'll probably get a rush from this contrived action thriller.

Man On A Ledge is perfectly watchable and includes a niftily-filmed cemetery chase, but there's little here that we haven't seen before.

February 2, 2012

The film's minor flaws, subtle self-mockery and irony work in its favour, bolstering the detailed observations and its characters' complexed anxieties.

While this won't be remembered as any kind of classic, it'll do until the next ledge-of-the-seat movie comes along.

While less than 'ledgendary' (groan), this movie delivers enough entertainment and excitement to pass muster for an escapist trip to the cinema.

Nicely paced and decently acted, Man on a Ledge delivers solid 'B' movie thrills for the most part, but it's also frequently ridiculous and it all falls apart in the final 15 minutes.

This embraces its own lunacy readily enough, never aiming for anything more than the disposable thrills it delivers thick and fast.
