Man on a Ledge | ★★★★★★★

I agree with a Netflix reviewer who said "Man on a Ledge is a thoroughly preposterous yet eminently entertaining edge-of-your-seat thriller." Ann and I both enjoyed this entertaining desperate-man-exposing-cop-corruption flick. The plot was filled with some surprising twists as convicted ex-cop Nick Cassidy, played by Sam Worthington, seeks to redeem his name and expose police misconduct in the NYPD.

I thought that the supporting cast did a pretty good job and especially liked the performance of Génesis Rodríguez. The ending was fairly predictable but I liked it anyways. The DVD came with a fascinating extra that showed how the film's producers built a sliding room of the top of the hotel and used an actual 21 story ledge to film the movie - it explained why the action seemed so real.

I recommend this one to you and, on a scale of ten, I give it ★★★★★★★.
