Man On A Ledge is a real popcorn-flick. It's ludicrous but thrilling. Like the great thrillers of old it has one intention, to entertain! Sam Worthington stars as an escaped prison inmate who checks into a hotel under a false name and climbs out onto the ledge of his 21st floor suite. With the threat of suicide he requests a specific negotiator and from this point the movie twists and turns its way thru set ups and scenarios that, while far fetched, are exciting and well paced. To say more is to spoil the fun. The critics mostly savaged the movie but perhaps they took it too seriously. It sort of reminded me of Phone Booth and even The Fugitive to some stretch... some predictability is easily overlooked in favour of a good time.
