In the flashback at the beginning (at Sing Sing Correctional Facility, a month earlier), while talking with the psychiatrist you can see that Nick has plaster on his arm, due to the fight we saw before. In the next scene he gets a visit from Mike, but then his arm is no longer plastered. See more »
Good morning, sir.
Last name's Walker.
Yes. Mr. Walker. Room 2105, South Tower. Great view. We also have a larger unit available on the east side, I can offer you at the same price.
No, I think I'll stick with the view.

A distinguish gentleman checks into a hotel with a view, has a nice meal and before dessert arrives climbs out on the ledge. But why? The thriller Man on the Ledge takes you on a journey into a man who seeks to capture his innocence in crime he did not commit. We learn the jumper is a former cop and ex-con, Nick Cassidy (Sam, Worthington) who takes a leap of faith to clear his name fortunately police psychologist Lydia Mercer (Elizabeth Banks) sweeps in to unlock a forgotten past. Man on the Ledge is a suspense filled thriller that will keep you on edge for the truth of this twisted tale.
This movie has a good story with not too much violence or profanity. It kept my interest and has some good special effects.
