Early reviews are already starting to pour in since Man On A Ledge is just a few weeks away. According to a blog written by PopCultureGuy, he describes the movie as “A film that Alfred Hitchcock would probably have enjoyed making. After all, the movie features many Hitchcockian elements, such as an innocent man accused of a crime, dubious characters who operate in the gray area of life, an attractive and calm blonde woman, and plenty of suspense that results from the main character’s life being repeatedly placed at risk.” Every single movie that is released receives different critiques and reviews. Man On A Ledge is no exception, the critics from The Daily Rotation may have some mixed feelings about the story and plot of this film. As quoted from the site’s review, they said that “Sam Worthington stretches his acting chops as the lead and Jamie Bell continues his career with another supporting role that tops the lead in terms of quality. The film is passable entertainment for 75% of the time, but the ending falls under its own weight and becomes a little too unbelievable with plot holes galore.” The mix reviews may come and go but 95% of the audiences at Rotten Tomatoes wants to see the Man On A Ledge movie.
