MAN ON A LEDGE
Like Snakes on a Plane and Hot Tub Time Machine, the title tells you all you need to know about this generic thriller. The man is played by Sam Worthington. The ledge is played by a grotty concrete slab on the 30th fl oor of a New York hotel. One gives a slightly more convincing performance than the other ( hint: it’s not the one who was in Avatar). Worthington is a bloke who was framed. Now he’s threatening to jump unless a worried( ish) NYPD agrees to his demands. Of course, he’s not gonna be kissing no footpath. Where’s the fi lm in that? However, the surprise twist to this high- rise drama doesn’t really glue the viewer to the screen. Overall, dumb as a brick. Almost endearingly so. But not quite.
