An NYPD hostage negotiator (Elizabeth Banks) attempts to talk cop-turned-fugitive Nick Cassidy (Sam Worthington) down from a high ledge, but she learns that he may have a hidden motive for threatening to take his own life. A priceless diamond has been stolen, and the thieves responsible are using Nick as their scapegoat. An escaped convict with nowhere to run, Nick realizes that no one will believe he is innocent, and he decides to take extreme measures in order to expose the men who set him up. Stepping out on a ledge 25 stories above the bustling concrete streets of New York City, the notorious fugitive quickly becomes a media sensation as the entire world watches, awaiting his next move. Meanwhile, Nick's loyal brother races to help clear his sibling's name and ensure that the guilty pay for their crimes before the situation ends in tragedy. Jamie Bell, Anthony Mackie, and Ed Harris co-star.~Jason Buchanan
If you can get past the preposterous plot, this is an enjoyable popcorn movie that thrills. The one thing that is unacceptably preposterous is the trailer with commentary by star Elizabeth Banks which you can't ignore. A horrible idea for a "trailer" that is the only bad thing on this disc.
The performances were good. A lot of fortuitous events at the end transpired, which seemed quite convenient for the lead character's exoneration. But I didn't hate the film, although it definitely is not one I would probably need to watch again. That the title in 4K was on sale for so little, says something as well as to how valuable to the studio the film is.
If you have already seen Man on a Ledge, I would say see it in 4k . . As it is much better!!
I didn't give 4 stars rating for the movie because it is slow in some parts but still a good movie.
So if you like it, see it in 4k!!
I had no clue about what this movie was about. I just heard from word of mouth it was great, and boy oh boy were they right! This movie just keeps you guessing about what’s going to happen. Some moments are just too over the top specially around the ending but that doesn’t ruing the movie at all! Give it a check
The film is very suspenseful when a man stands on the ledge of a building to prove hie is innocent of a frame up that put him in jail.
The going on behind the scenes while he is on ledge that becomes exciting, a clever idea on the man on a ledge films. The film is well acted and the special effects are well done
