If you like caper movies you should check out the new movie Man On A Ledge–it’s a caper movie with a different sort of twist.

An escaped convict, who is a former cop in jail for stealing a famous diamond, ends up out on a ledge at a hotel. A police psychologist (Elizabeth Banks) works to try and talk him down, unaware at first who he is as he registered at the hotel under an alias. The psychologist has her own story as well–she’s been in a downward spiral after failing to keep a cop from jumping off a bridge and she’s surprised when the man on a ledge asks for her by name. At the same time that he is on the ledge, across the street a major diamond heist is in progress.

While this all goes on, the real story begins to unfold as we see what put the man, whose real name is Nick Cassidy (Sam Worthington), in prison and what he’s really up to in an effort to prove his innocence.
Once it is discovered who is on the ledge, his former partner seems to be trying to help him, but throughout the movie we really aren’t sure if he is good or bad.

There are a lot of twists, turns and surprises and I hesitate to explain anything more of the story because I don’t want to ruin it for those who have yet to see it. The way it all ties together is brilliant. I absolutely love how this movie ends and what we discover.

If you enjoy action films that keep you on the edge of your seat, and yet make you think as well, go see Man On A Ledge! But be warned it can be a bit nerve wracking at times for those of us with a fear of heights.
