Man On A Ledge is a simple story about sticking it to The Man. Nick Cassidy (Sam Worthington) has been kicked off the NYPD and arrested for stealing a $40 million dollar diamond from John Englander (Ed Harris). This thing is a ROCK let me tell ya. Cassidy must prove he’s innocent to clear his name.
The action takes us 220 feet in the air at the Roosevelt Hotel in downtown Manhattan. He goes out on the ledge. Why? Jumper? Psycho? To get answers, we need a negotiator. This movie is cast with People Magazine’s Sexiest Negotiators Alive. Representing the men is Jack Dougherty (Ed Burns) & the women, Lydia Mercer (Elizabeth Banks.)
The cat and mouse game ensues. What’s really going on here? All the answers are across the street. Things are not what they seem. I thought the film had good pacing. I also appreciate subtle twists & cleverness in heists. If you’re gonna jump in, jump in with both feet. This is strictly a formula film and I enjoyed it.
