While less than 'ledgendary' (groan), this movie delivers enough entertainment and excitement to pass muster for an escapist trip to the cinema.

Nicely paced and decently acted, Man on a Ledge delivers solid 'B' movie thrills for the most part, but it's also frequently ridiculous and it all falls apart in the final 15 minutes.

Action star Sam Worthington plays a disgraced cop threatening suicide from atop a hotel ledge, but we rapidly lose interest.

This embraces its own lunacy readily enough, never aiming for anything more than the disposable thrills it delivers thick and fast.

The solution to "now what do we do for 103 minutes?" is to pile as many silly distractions into the running time as possible.

Man on a Ledge is so tired and hackneyed and straight out of a bad 80s TV show that there's even scene where one of them has to disable a timer with seconds left and Worthington is yelling 'Don't cut the red wire'!

Asger Leth's "Man on a Ledge" does the kind of thing movies do well.

Contrived, cliche-riddled and far-fetched, twisting the fugitive-on-the-run forumula.

... an outlandish cock-and-bull story that would hardly pass a freshman screenwriting class, but somehow they pull it off ...

Diverting, but it's not just the ledge that's rickety here.

the energy level never quite gets the adrenaline pumping properly for a film so dependent on split-second timing and dire situations, but as escapist popcorn fare with pretty people and simple characters, it's not at all bad.

The emotions this film generates would be more accurately encapsulated by calling it "Man on a Whoopee Cushion."

Moviegoers might be more inclined to side with street-level gawkers who want Nick to just take the plunge.

With its grab-you title and reliable star power, Man on a Ledge delivers what the high impact concept promises: high voltage tension

Congratulations are in order to director Asger Leth and screenwriter Pablo F. Fenjves for the ingenious storytelling in their joint feature film debuts. The superb editing and brisk pacing are additional strengths of the first must-see movie of 2012.

It's all fast-paced nonsense, easy to take but not quite engaging enough to warrant a night out at the movies. Yeah, best to wait for that DVD.
