Pretty good movie for a rainy nite at home. Kinda far fetched.... But well acted and it keeps your attention for the most part.

Not too bad. Great movie to redbox or netflix for a movie night with friends. Not worth seeing in the theater though.

Great story line, except for the fact that it was putting me to sleep. I felt that there should have been alot more action than I expected.

Entertaining, though it pushes the limits of credibility. Mission Impossible wannabe.

Despite the occasional dumb fun - especially with the heist portions - the leap of logic required to make it all work is enough to leave your brain pancaked on the sidewalk. Full Review

Man on a Ledge has its diverting moments, but by the time it has reached its too-pat final twist, it turns out to be a title desperately in search of a movie. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
In Man on a Ledge, Leth does well in taking us to dizzying heights. If only he had found a way to ground that thrill in some real pathos as well. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
More often the film succumbs to clichés, grows convoluted and outlandish, and winds up dead on arrival. Full Review

New York Daily News
Screenwriter Pablo Fenjves start with a promising premise, and the opening scenes are taut and suspenseful. A late-day chase scene picks up the sagging middle, but Leth totally fumbles what should be the movie's biggest moment. Full Review
