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 »

But this couple down at the precinct, they've been at me for this for a year now, and I've known them for 15 years, I mean, John and Jane Connelly, they're real good people, but you know, they can't have kids, so he goes, you know, "If I had a child I'd want to be like Hollis", aw shoot, I don't even know why...

Liv clueless
29 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

Great film but what shocks me most is how clueless Liv Tyler is about Gavins reasons to be an atheist.

Check out this interview and cringe about her statements.

He clearly states that he was a believer in his youth but step by step realized that there is no Tooth Fairy, no Santa Claus and last but not least NO GOD.

WHAT THE HELL is it so hard to understand that some people just grow up?!

Does it always have to be a catastrophic moment in life that lets you "lose" your faith. Jesus Christ!
