In Theaters : MAN ON A LEDGE (2012)

Official Synopsis : 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, the more she realizes that he might have an ulterior objective.

Genre: Thriller, Action

Critical Response : Negative. The general consensus seems to point out that "Man on a Ledge" executes some radical leaps in the way the plot is conceived, and not in a good way. The characters are provided with no credible motivations and their actions lack reasoning, or any kind of logic, for that matter. Some bad casting decisions also hinder the overall production. Despite being hyped as an intelligent thriller, it's nothing but standard genre fare. Rated 22% on Rottentomatoes.com from 17 positive and 65 negative reviews (Average Score : 4.6 out of 10).
