Man On A Ledge (2012)

man_on_a_ledge

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. Stars Sam Worthington and Elizabeth Banks are both feeble, heading a singularly uninspiring cast including Jamie Bell who slums it as the safe and wise cracker and Genesis Rodriguez who supplies the token hot latina.

There is literally nothing here that you won’t have seen a dozen times before and the whole thing is like a grindingly workmanlike feature-length episode of Prison Break from when it was well past its sell by date.
