Critic Reviews

  • Anna Smith, Time Out
    This embraces its own lunacy readily enough, never aiming for anything more than the disposable thrills it delivers thick and fast.
  • Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
    The solution to "now what do we do for 103 minutes?" is to pile as many silly distractions into the running time as possible.
  • Richard Roeper, Richard
    'Man on a Ledge' is our first legit contender for Best Worst movie of the year.
  • Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
    This is one of the few movies that, with its skyscraper action scenes, probably needed to be made in 3-D. As it is, though, it's barely in 2-D - and really, I'm not sure it needed to be made at all.
  • Tom Long, Detroit News
    There's no escaping the sheer terror of a guy standing on a ledge that high up. "Man on a Ledge" delivers the sweats it intends to deliver.
  • Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
    When an action movie is as clumsy as "Man on a Ledge," it's begging to fall.
  • Rafer Guzman, Newsday
    A clumsily made thriller with very few thrills.
  • Sara Stewart, New York Post
    [A] jumble of cop- and heist-movie clichés, dotted with appearances by actors you liked in something else...
  • Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
    Credibility takes a nose-dive long before its protagonist is separated from his perch.
  • Eric D. Snider,
    Dumb, easy-to-swallow fun, more or less - the sort of movie that makes people say, "Well, that wasn't as bad as I thought it would be."
