Excerpt: A cop convicted of stealing a priceless diamond feigns a suicide attempt as part of a plan to clear his name. The title of Man On A Ledge gives you some idea of just how little imagination the entire film contains. Every character is a stereotype, every line of dialogue is a cliche, every corny plot device is recycled in what is nothing more than a post Michael Bay conveyor belt Hollywood action thriller by numbers.
Summary: An ex-cop and now wanted fugitive (Sam Worthington) stands on the ledge of a high-rise building while a hard-living New York Police Department negotiator (Elizabeth Banks)tries to talk him down. The longer they are on the ledge. This movie is a one of those cliche seen it all before heist movies. The ending of this movie is so stupid and it would not happen in real life and that's when the movie falls about for me.
Excerpt: Nick Cassidy (Sam Worthington) is an ex-NYPD officer serving twenty-five years in prison for allegedly stealing a valuable diamond from real estate mogul David Englander (Ed Harris). When Nick's father dies he is allowed to attend at the funeral with a police escort but he escapes custody.
