Man on a Ledge Reviews

Kristal Cooper
We Got This Covered

Sam Worthington's Man On A Ledge is an absolute mess of a film, from start to finish. It's silly, dumb and ridiculous.

This drama defies reason, logic and explanation but it can't defy gravity and ultimately falls flatly on its face.

After an interesting guessing game in the first forty minutes, it slips and falls to a terrible and clichéd death.

2UE That Movie Show

It's pulp, airport fiction - the acting is mediocre, the characters are formulaic archetypes... but I didn't feel as if my time was wasted at all.

The film's descent into generic silliness feels more painful than it should for a late-January thriller.

Trusting an action drone like Worthington to anchor the human drama is a fatal mistake.

Yep, there's a man on a ledge in it.

It plays out with the unfussed proceduralism of a network TV pilot.

For a film with such a straightforward title, Man on a Ledge turns out to be remarkably convoluted.

Christopher Lloyd
Sarasota Herald-Tribune

Wants to be a fun and zippy thriller, but the moving parts fit together a little too neatly.

Josh Bell
Las Vegas Weekly

As the pieces fall into place, it becomes less interesting and more contrived, until finally losing all semblance of believability.

...the movie takes its sweet time dolling out the twists, like a tree sloth hand-rolling pretzels.

Man on a Ledge isn't terrible but it isn't necessarily very good.

Roger Ebert

Top Critic IconTop Critic

The movie cuts back and forth between two preposterous plot lines and uses the man on the ledge as a device to pump up the tension.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

On balance, Man on a Ledge is fun, but I left the theater feeling disappointed and cheated, as if the filmmakers set me up for something great they ultimately couldn't deliver.

It's not a despicable film, to be sure, but it's a time-filler at best.

You can say this for screenwriter Pablo F. Fenjves' story: It stays busy.

It's a long way down from starring in the biggest box office hit ever and Avatar's Sam Worthington is plummeting.

It's not as exciting as it should be but picks up towards the end and Ed Harris is fun as a property tycoon nasty.
