Runtime: 1 hour 42 minutes (102 minutes)
Rated PG-13 for violence and brief strong language.
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 hostage negotiator (Elizabeth Banks) tries to talk him down. The longer they are on the ledge, the more she realizes that he might have an ulterior objective.
The solution to "now what do we do for 103 minutes?" is to pile as many silly distractions into the running time as possible.
Critic Score: 2.5/5
'Man on a Ledge' is our first legit contender for Best Worst movie of the year.
Critic Score: 1.5/5
There's no escaping the sheer terror of a guy standing on a ledge that high up. "Man on a Ledge" delivers the sweats it intends to deliver.
Critic Score: 2/5
