Watch it...ignore the reviews.
Man on a Ledge review
12th September 2012
OK, so it has some flaws and the plot is sugar-coated nonsense, but the story IS entertaining, the pace and action well handled and for entertainment it's spot on.
It starts with great promise and surprisingly manages to spin out 100 minutes of very satisfying cinema, a decent helping of interesting characters (despite the cynical reviews), and enough intrigue to carry you through even though the ending is totally predictable.
Ingenious premise which wobbled on the ledge of failure but actually pulled off a superb helping of good film fun.
