Storyline

An ex-cop turned con threatens to jump to his death from a Manhattan hotel rooftop. The nearest New York Police officer immediately responds to a screaming woman and calls dispatch. More Officers arrive with SWAT and tactical command along with fire-fighters. The police then dispatches a female police psychologist personally requested to talk him down from the ledge. However, things aren't as straightforward and clearcut as they appear to be. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The sign on the roof of Englander's: "24 HOUR ROOF REPAIR". This is the reason for the massive blue tarp. Coincidentally or not, it provided additional coverage for Joey Cassidy (Jamie Bell) and Angie (Genesis Rodriguez). See more »

Goofs

The building used in the outside shots clearly was the Roosevelt Hotel, but the Roosevelt (and all outside shots of the building in the movie verify this) has only 18 floors, and the movie premise is a hotel of at least 24 floors. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]

I expected seeing a good movie ending seeing a great movie
22 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

was looking forward to see this movie since i saw the trailers and now that I have seen.

I thought it even better then it thought t be.

This movie had me on edge of seat thought the movie, I had no idea what going to happen next.

There was some very good tense scenes in this movie that really got me of seat and shouting at the TV.

There were some really good twist and turns in this movie that I didn't see coming at all.

I Thought the acting was really good from the whole cast and Extras too.

I expected a good movie but ended up seeing a great movie

8/10
