Movie Review: Man on a Ledge

If you like movies that:

Move quickly
Have Complex Characters
Have surprises
Make your heart race
Inspire a mixture of emotions, namely excitement

Then this is the movie for you!

If not, you should probably avoid this movie.


How would it feel to stand twenty stories in the air? How would it feel to know that your only options are death and jail?  I’d imagine Nick Cassidy, ex-cop turned major felon, feels. Sentenced to spend twenty five years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. He becomes determined to find the proof that he is an innocent man.

He has to depend on two people across the street with thousands of people with their eyes on him, some of them chanting “jump” some of them crying “attica!” Some of them on the inside wanting him dead. He has to keep them entertained, frightened, excited, while across the street he is perpetrating a crime he swears he didn’t commit the first time.

Definitely a 10 star movie in my book! I kind of want to go see it again…I might…If you’ve seen it, give your ratings! 

Personally, I’m not really a fan of thrillers, but this movie is definitely on my “to buy” list.
