Goofs

After Joey opens the panel beside the vault door, Angie looks into it and we see the vent beyond goes on for a fair distance. However, later in the movie, we see into the vault itself and it's evident the layout of the vault and corridor couldn't possibly accommodate a vent of the length shown. See more »

Man Climbs out to the Ledge for a Second Chance
3 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
