Chapman coaxes good performances from his cast, especially Wilson, who makes Joe's immense conflicts a matter of empathy as much as abhorrence. But Chapman doesn't have the filmmaking skills to conceal the talky, formulaic narrative.
Gavin recalls his experiences while standing atop a building ready to jump; we're meant to be on edge ourselves, but the only real mystery is why Tyler took such an unrewarding role in the first place.
A film that's ultimately sabotaged by its own heavy-handed screenplay.
Unlike its talky hero, the credibility of this preposterous drama immediately plunges into the abyss.
Can't wait until Thanksgiving dinner to witness a pointless conversation between a pompous fundamentalist Christian and a sneering atheist? Then The Ledge is the movie for you.
What undoes it is its mechanical structure: a stale dramatic formula of the sort taught in elementary playwriting classes.
The Ledge has a couple very strong performances and it explores some interesting issues. There are some satisfying thrills to be had here and overall, it's not a bad watch.
A perfectly watchable drama, but it could have (and should have) been a bona fide thriller.
Covering well-worn territory and offering no solutions, it ends up feeling shrill and angry and not nearly as profound as Chapman seems to think it is.
Clunky writing and flat-footed direction derail this initially intriguing exploration into both the power and limits of belief.
The framing device of its conceit is beyond silly, and its religious and philosophical debate a tad inorganic, but ambition and intellect help drive and push The Ledge in interesting ways.
Nothing much holds together in this entropic drama that still manages to entertain sporadically through the efforts of its sincerely invested cast.
This is one of those films that has had the some fairly negative press, but it isn't as bad as it might seem. The idea here is quite good, but due to the fact that it mixes multiple genres and it's a film that doesn't know what it really tries to be. It's not a bad idea, but the film feels rushed in its ideas, and it doesn't try to elaborate in what it presents us in the film's story. The film presents good ideas as well, but it never really explores in depth what it suggests, and it's disappointing because if the ideas really would have been better developed, The Ledge would really have been a great film. This is a good affair, but it could have been so much more as well. The cast is quite impressive, and there are some good performances here as well. The Ledge isn't a perfect film, but it manages to be entertaining for what it tries to do. If the script would have been reworked slightly with some of its ideas better developed, then I think that the film would really have been a great affair. Though not perfect, The Ledge doesn't deserve the flack it has received, it's a film that manages to have good ideas in its plot that make for a good viewing experience. But since they are a bit underdeveloped, you simply are left wanting more out of the film. The film does have some tense moments, and has an interesting idea on faith, which is something we rarely see in films, and it pulls it off nicely.
I love, Charlie Hunnam. I am a big fan of his acting and looks. ;} But this movie just didn't do it for me. The story wasn't twisted or mysterious enough for me. Plus the ending sucked. I was hoping for a different outcome. The characters weren't that interesting and lacked depth. I couldn't bring myself to care for them and for what happened to them. Terrence Howard's acting is something I still find hard to like. I don't know what it is about the guy, but he just doesn't do it for me. It was a decent film, but if not for Charlie I wouldn't have rated it what I did or even given the movie a chance considering the plot of the film. If you choose to pass you wouldn't be missing anything.
Looked like a good cast but it was really slow going. I couldn't get into it.
"One life. One chance. One step."
A police officer looks to talk down a young man lured by his lover's husband to the ledge of a high rise, where he has one hour to contemplate a fateful decision.
