An NYPD hostage negotiator (Elizabeth Banks) attempts to talk cop-turned-fugitive Nick Cassidy (Sam Worthington) down from a high ledge, but she learns that he may have a hidden motive for threatening to take his own life. A priceless diamond has been stolen, and the thieves responsible are using Nick as their scapegoat. An escaped convict with nowhere to run, Nick realizes that no one will believe he is innocent, and he decides to take extreme measures in order to expose the men who set him up. Stepping out on a ledge 25 stories above the bustling concrete streets of New York City, the notorious fugitive quickly becomes a media sensation as the entire world watches, awaiting his next move. Meanwhile, Nick's loyal brother races to help clear his sibling's name and ensure that the guilty pay for their crimes before the situation ends in tragedy. Jamie Bell, Anthony Mackie, and Ed Harris co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
This movie was worth seeing in theaters. Kept you interested. Had a descent plot, with lots of action. Usually when you see a lot of top named actors in the same film, it's a FLOP! But they pulled this one off. Worth the watch! "Da Hood Critic"
One of the best action movies I've seen in quite a while. The man on the ledge is an x cop who is trying to clear his name of a crime he didn't commit. The entire escapade is to prove he's innocent. There is a lot of action and vertigo in this film. It was actually filmed on location on that actual ledge! I saw interviews. A must see. Highly recommended.
I really enjoyed this movie. It kept you interested throughout the whole movie. Fast pace, action pack. Even though you know who was the bad guy, you still wanted to find out how he was going to get his. A must see
This was a great movie. I was hesitant to watch it because I thought it would be stupid to watch someone on a ledge for 2 hours. But this was totally not the case. It was funny, intense, and overall a great movie. I highly recommend it.
At first the movie was a bit confusing as it flicked between past to present but then it stayed in the present time and slowly it came together as to why the ex-con was out on the ledge. I don't want to give the movie away but it was a good movie, a bit of mystery and tense moments and a good ending.
