The Ledge Reviews

Blake Griffin
We Got This Covered

The Ledge has a couple very strong performances and it explores some interesting issues. There are some satisfying thrills to be had here and overall, it's not a bad watch.

Movie Metropolis

A perfectly watchable drama, but it could have (and should have) been a bona fide thriller.

Mike Scott
Times-Picayune

Covering well-worn territory and offering no solutions, it ends up feeling shrill and angry and not nearly as profound as Chapman seems to think it is.

Television Without Pity

Clunky writing and flat-footed direction derail this initially intriguing exploration into both the power and limits of belief.

The framing device of its conceit is beyond silly, and its religious and philosophical debate a tad inorganic, but ambition and intellect help drive and push The Ledge in interesting ways.

Nothing much holds together in this entropic drama that still manages to entertain sporadically through the efforts of its sincerely invested cast.

Simplistic, contrived, neo-noir psychological thriller

Chapman coaxes good performances from his cast, especially Wilson, who makes Joe's immense conflicts a matter of empathy as much as abhorrence. But Chapman doesn't have the filmmaking skills to conceal the talky, formulaic narrative.

Gavin recalls his experiences while standing atop a building ready to jump; we're meant to be on edge ourselves, but the only real mystery is why Tyler took such an unrewarding role in the first place.

A film that's ultimately sabotaged by its own heavy-handed screenplay.

Unlike its talky hero, the credibility of this preposterous drama immediately plunges into the abyss.

Can't wait until Thanksgiving dinner to witness a pointless conversation between a pompous fundamentalist Christian and a sneering atheist? Then The Ledge is the movie for you.

What undoes it is its mechanical structure: a stale dramatic formula of the sort taught in elementary playwriting classes.

Spirituality and Practice

A drama about the clash of faith between a zealous Christian fundamentalist and a non-believer with a zest for life.

The melodramatic flourish that ends The Ledge feels unearned and unclean: It's the sort of ending that ought to hit hard, and yet it comes off as perversely inconsequential.

Hollywood & Fine

The writing here is so lifeless and schematic that even the attraction of Liv Tyler stripping down to get horizontal with Hunnam won't be enough to keep you watching.

If nothing else, The Ledge is a reminder of what a terrible, terrible actress Liv Tyler is.

The characters in The Ledge exist for the sole purpose of argument, and the script is too narrow to engage the viewer unconditionally.

The dopey setup might fly in a film with more panache, but Chapman seems to think he's making a gritty indie with ideas on its mind.
