An ex-cop turned con threatens to jump to his death from a Manhattan hotel rooftop. The nearest New York Police officer immediately responds to a screaming woman and calls dispatch. More Officers arrive with SWAT and tactical command along with fire-fighters. The police then dispatches a female police psychologist personally requested to talk him down from the ledge. However, things aren’t as straightforward and clearcut as they appear to be.
Brilliant. Great plot, great action, great twist. In sum? Great movie.
Watching Man on a Ledge feels like watching Source Code all over again. Not as good as the latter, but still, it was still a fantastic watch. It’s been quite some time since I last watched a great movie.
While presenting the usual type of action movie – cops, deceptions, and uncovered truths, this movie is also equipped with some twisted plots – the one that leaves you guessing.
Sam Worthington is flawless in his acting. Definitely makes it to my anticipated-actors list.
Watch it. You won’t be sorry.
