Man on a Ledge certainly has its moments and if you don't take it seriously it's good B-grade fun, but considering the calibre of cast and its novel idea, it doesn't live up to its potential.

They basically patch a narrative together by jacking the best moments from fun popcorn flicks like The Negotiator and Inside Man.

As befitting the blunt dullness of the title, it manages the neat trick of being curiously watchable without ever crossing the line into remotely interesting.
September 25, 2013
After an interesting guessing game in the first forty minutes, it slips and falls to a terrible and clichéd death.

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

"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

Sam Worthington's Man On A Ledge is an absolute mess of a film, from start to finish. It's silly, dumb and ridiculous.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

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

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

...depending on your levels of credulity - and blood alcohol - it might just pass muster as a late-night six-pack flick.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Man on a Ledge flirts with B-movie greatness but comes up short thanks to the far-fetched plot device used to power a clunky hybrid of heist flick/Hitchcockian wrong-man thriller.

... The ledge is the movie's most dynamic performer.

February 9, 2012
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.

a straight-up genre film with no ambition beyond keeping the audience minimally entertained with its workmanlike execution of a literally high-concept idea

Given that it stars action drone Sam Worthington, you'll be wishing they called it 'Man off a Ledge' before long.

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

It's absolutely average. That's not exactly what you are looking for when your subject is about a man on a ledge.

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