"I really liked this. I wasn't blown away with it, but it was close to being great. I enjoyed the story. I thought the way they planned it all was very smart. I was even surprised by the ending when their in the bar. I didn't catch on to who the bartender would end up being. I lo...

For a thriller like this to work it has to rely on the small details but unfortunately the story is fairly light when it comes to those and instead tries hard to make the best of a good premise with very little to back it up with. The cast is eclectic but no one really stands out...

A man (Sam) walks onto a hotel ledge, ready to jump. He is an ex-cop who escaped from prison to prove his innocence. Exciting thriller. Great cast. If you like Inside Man or Phonebooth you will like this movie.

Asger Leth's Man on a Ledge lives up to its name. Just maybe not in the best possible way.
With 100 minutes of screen time to fulfill, the plot for this picture is adequate enough to get by. What happens elsewhere in the story apart from this man on a ledge is somewhat...

Man on a Ledge is a well made thriller with a pretty good cast. I very much loved the film, and thought it was a fun viewing experience. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this film. I thought that it had a few weak moments, which made the film a tad weak, but for the most par...
