This movie has Sam Worthington, sporting an American accent and a Billy Ray Cyrus "Achy Breaky Heart"-era mullet, as an escaped convict who's looking to end his life by jumping off the ledge of a New York City high-rise hotel. It turns out that this fugitive was once a respected New York cop who says he was framed for the theft of an expensive diamond owned by a sinister real estate tycoon (Ed Harris, giving a laughably dastardly performance). Certain moviegoers may consider this premise the makings of halfway decent junk to see on a weekend night, but the movie's pitifully executed preposterousness may gnaw at other people's nerves.

Man on a Ledge is utterly uninspired ludicrousness

If it weren't for the fact that Contraband came out a couple of weeks ago, I'd say Man on a Ledge is the most ridiculous new movie out there. However, it's definitely the most unbelievably ridiculous new movie. »
