Storyline

A thriller in which a battle of philosophies between a fundamentalist Christian and an atheist escalates into a lethal battle of wills. Ultimately, as a test of faith, or lack of it, the believer forces the non-believer onto the ledge of a tall building. He then has one hour to make a choice between his own life and someone else's. Without faith in an afterlife, will he be capable of such a sacrifice? Written by Foresight

Goofs

At 1:12:27 into the movie, as the camera pans to Gavin on the ledge talking to Hollis, the sun is high casting only a partial shadow ton the gray building in the background. The camera then switches to just Hollis looking out of the window, and when it goes back to show Gavin again, the shadow on the gray building behind him covers it almost completely. But the next two times we see Gavin at the same spot the shadow moves back and forth, revealing that the scenes were shot earlier but cut in for the sake of the narrative. See more »

Don't Jump! Suspense Coupled With Theological Discussions Works
18 February 2013 | by (Paradise, California) – See all my reviews

The film opens from the edge from a ten-story building ledge, as a cop who has just been told of his wife's infidelity attempts to save a man who has decided to jump off the building--that's a good start! The rest follows and fascinates as there are two parallel tales are simultaneously related.

One of the marks of this film's fascination is that it can be read in many different ways--essentially a thriller, it is also a story that questions the nature of human love, of our place in the universe, as well as the human relationship to whatever God might be worshiped. It features some outstanding ensemble acting by a quartet of four, each of whom defines a character with both strengths and flaws...rather perversely, one waits out the film to see a possible suicide, and as Hitchcock so often implicates members of the audience as voyeurs, one feels similarly (if willingly) manipulated here.
