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'!
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.
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.
