A short while after Lydia first offers him a cigarette, Nick moves almost to the corner of the building to communicate with Joey and Angie. In a cut to ground level with Suzie Morales and her cameraman, there's a shot up to the ledge where a figure clearly stands right next to the open window. In the next close-up, Nick's back near the corner. 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.

Don't be put off by the rather boring title, this is a quirky little
movie that works quite well and will give acrophobics a dizzying run
for their money.
I have to say that I figured a movie in which the plot revolves around
some guy on a ledge would be relatively slow paced. However the film is
in fact surprisingly fast-paced with the viewer largely unaware of the
underlying plot even as our man steps out on to his ledge.
The characters and their parts in the plot are revealed as we go, with
plenty to keep the viewer on the edge of their seat as our disgraced
ex-cop dangles precariously on his ledge.
The revelations come thick and fast, and at one point you may well be
asking yourself whether there are actually any good cops in this movie

There is one really good action scene/stunt in the movie which is
difficult to describe without ticking the "spoiler" box so I will leave
you to discover what was for me the best jaw-dropping moment of the
And just in case anyone reading this review has already watched the
movie and was wondering, Genesis Rodriguez stripping down to her
underwear was my second best jaw-dropper scene (sad, I know!)
Not an epic but a nevertheless entertaining movie that is well worth
watching, and there is even a nice little twist towards the end.
