Review: Man On A Ledge

Directed By: Asger Leth

Starring: Sam Worthington, Elizabeth Banks, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, Anthony Mackie, Edward Burns, Genesis Rodriguez

Rating:   Running Time: 102 mins

The movie opens with a simple enough premise. Jay Walker (Avatar’s Sam Worthington) checks in to a New York hotel and is shown to his room on the 21st floor. He orders a meal and then after eating, writes down a note on a pad, opens the window and climbs out onto the ledge. We’re then shown through flashback that Jay is in fact Nick Cassidy, an ex-cop and escaped prisoner who was imprisoned for stealing a huge diamond, and who is on the run after escaping at his father’s funeral the day before.

Trailer: Wrath of the Titans

Perseus embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, who has been targeted for capture by his traitorous son, Ares, and his brother, Hades.

First Impression: To say the first one was a bad movie is doing it justice i thought it was terrible so i have very little confidence on how well this going to turn out, it might be good but the trailer to me doesn’t look that special.
