Man On A Ledge: 2 ½ out of 5
Nick Cassidy: Don’t worry, everyone’s looking at me
There is a great film out there that seems to be about one thing, but is actually a lot more like another thing entirely. It involves a man who must place himself in a precariously high position on a building, with a plan to accomplish a certain task. Despite having this task in mind however, the film actually plays out by having more in common with a heist movie. The film I am referring to is Man on Wire, the Oscar-winning documentary about a man who performed a high-wire walk across the Twin Towers in New York during the 70s. Man on a Ledge is similarly about a man perching himself outside of a building, with a heist-like situation occurring at the same time, but is also vastly inferior. There is certainly some enjoyment to be had, but not enough to look over the incredible amount of suspension of disbelief involved in taking the central scheme and plotting of this film seriously, let alone recommend the film.
