London Evening Standard

There's a professional slickness about the proceedings and it entertains for most of the time.
Kim Newman

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...
Robbie Collin
Daily Telegraph (UK)
February 3, 2012
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.

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.

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

Most audience members will be rolling their eyes in disbelief. That's if they haven't already leapt from their seats and left the cinema.

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.

Yes, it's astoundingly stupid and full of rubbish characterisation and nonsense twists, but Man On A Ledge is harmless enough.

The ledge gives Worthington a run for his money. The giddy thrill of the story - perched high above the milling genre stereotypes - was grounded long ago.

Strictly for acrophobes with masochism.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

...at its best when it's being sillier; you just have to wait a little while for the good stuff.

Pure excitement from beginning to end which means pure entertainment from beginning to end

Matt's Movie Reviews
February 1, 2012
A film that wins the award for the least creative title, Man on a Ledge evokes moments from better movies while forgetting to inject any originality or thrills in its worn out premise.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Henry Fitzherbert
Daily Express (UK)

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

While this won't be remembered as any kind of classic, it'll do until the next ledge-of-the-seat movie comes along.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

"Man on a Ledge" goes splat! What else can you say about it? Paul Chambers, CNN.
