Watch Man on a Ledge - Alternative Versions.
As you'd expect, "Man on a Ledge" is a Swiss-cheese plotted heist and
"prove his innocence" movie but taken as just that, it's quite an
enjoyable movie. I suppose after having seen enough of these kinds of
movies, I shouldn't expect perfection in how every plot thread is tied
up since very few movies manage it. However, what the movie does
excellently is setup the plot and build up the situation perfectly.
Just starting as a literal man on a ledge, we see subtle layers added
until we get this full on crescendo of diamond heists, negotiators,
cops, convicts, bad guys, good guys all happening on in a single block
in New York. So, given that you're willing to suppress your tingling
plot-hole sense, it can be an enjoyable movie.
The cast is quite good and the acting and tension is par for the
course. The leads Sam Worthington and Elizabeth Banks do a great job.
Seeing Worthington as an ex-NY cop, ex-convict and Banks as a
negotiator/psychologist with a past is surprising on paper but they
manage to pull it off very well. However, Jamie Bell is one of the
heist-team but his opposite who plays Angie make for some cringe-worthy
comedy, like some Sofia Vergara slapstick in the middle of a tense
situation. Ed Harris looks emaciated but equally sinister as the
villain and there are a host other minor NY characters.
I can hear the Hollywood pitch for the movie in my head, "it's like The
Negotiator combined with The Italian Job but happens in NY and instead
of a hostage situation we have a jumper." And, essentially it's just
that a movie that heavily recalls other movies from the past except
perhaps for the man on ledge. On a side note, it seems that every NY
movie nowadays has a reference to the OWS movement and what a typical
OWS protester might look like.
The movie is at its best when it clamors for our hero who desperate and
is fighting all odds to clear his name as he shouts from his ledge, "I
am innocent and this is my retrial." The movie is at its worst when
it's ungainly roping in all the plot threads it cast out but can't seem
to put it together. Overall, it's a good enough movie for people who
like these kinds of movies. If you've caught yourself bitterly berating
the many plot holes in heist movies, maybe this isn't for you.
