    Man on a Ledge (2012)

    While appearing to be original, I never got any sense of worry or suspense from the film. The entire event just seemed random and the aspects that describe the characters unfold as the climax and conclusions begin. Odd way to make a film, but in no way unique. The action scenes, like most of January's flicks, aren't all that impressive. Plus, I could care less about most of the characters. Ed Harris is under-used and the reporter girl is made of focus point. Worthington does his best, but his character's motivations take so long to be made clear that it's both pointless and boring. When they do explain it, he literally says it in words. We can' experience it. So, just like its title, the movie is rather stale.
