Man on a Ledge

Just saw an advanced screening of Sam Worthington's new movie.

Nick Cassidy (Sam Worthington) is a cop who is sent to jail for stealing the Monarch diamond from real estate mogul, David Englander (Ed Harris). One catch: he didn't steal it. In fact, no one did. Facing a 25 year sentence, Cassidy has only one option. Break out of jail and clear his name.

Are you interested yet?

I give it 

It was a really good movie. Surprisingly funny with excellent pacing. The plot was good if a smidge dramatic at times. The action sequences were well done and exciting. Other than a few jumps that seem unlikely (though which film doesn't have a couple of those) it was reasonably conceivable. The thing I liked best was the comedy. I found myself laughing at a lot of the dialogue which I was not expecting. I thought I was seeing a suspenseful, dramatic action movie. I was pleasantly surprised by the laughs. So on January 27th when it is released, go see it. You probably won't regret it.
