Man on a Ledge


Sam Worthington fails to shine in poor thriller Discuss this article

Ex-Avatar grunt Sam Worthington stars as a mystery man who positions himself on the business side of a skyscraper window. Dragged to the scene once the media circus rolls in, a police negotiator (Banks) has a hunch that he doesn’t actually plan to jump. If not, what’s he really doing up there?

Man on a Ledge is simultaneously a wrong-man thriller, a heist movie and a down-with-the-fat-cats crowd-pleaser. Yet trusting Worthington to anchor the human drama is a fatal mistake, and it’s only a matter of time before the film plummets.
