Movie info: An ex-cop and now wanted fugitive (Sam Worthington) stands on the ledge of a high-rise building while a hard-living New York Police Department negotiator (Elizabeth Banks)tries to talk him down. The longer they are on the ledge, the more she realizes that he might have an ulterior objective. — (C) Summit Entertainment
Mars Review: It doesn’t spend enough time on its ledge to be the definitive ‘jumper’ movie the title promises, here Leth makes Worthington’s ledge a constantly frightening gimmick and the pacing between scenes is so effective, you’d be on the edge of your seat if the film didn’t constantly make you feel for the back of your chair. Certainly enjoyable and tense despite some wobbly performances and plot holes.
Stars: 2 1/2 out of 5
