I saw an advanced screening of ‘Man on a Ledge’ two nights ago. There’s not much to say…where the plot proved interesting, the script was lacking. The beginning made it difficult to get into. I wasn’t fond of the characters & again, the script was just terrible. If I had my eyes shut, I think I would have named a few movies I thought I was listening to…that’s how unoriginal it was. The punch lines were predictable, leaving the rest of the movie unbelievable. It wasn’t until half way through when it piqued my interest. There was about 15 minutes that I can recall wondering what was going to happen next & then it was the end. As if there weren’t enough shockers in the movie, they put the cherry on top of that sundae with another “surprise!”. I left the theater somewhat amused that the movie just gave us all these “tah-dah” moments without any explanation…& trying to form a realistic assumption was just a waste of my time. So, if you’re looking to just sit back & watch a flick to pass time, this is the movie for you.
Man On A Ledge will be released in theaters January 27th, 2012.
