GMC Day 25: Man on a Ledge (2012)

Sam Worthington, Elizabeth Banks, Ed Burns


I actually threw Ed Burn's name on the notable starring actors list as a joke. I mean, what is he even known for, other than being married to one of the most beautiful persons ever, Christy Turlington? Who is letting him continue to act in movies? Maybe he should do a rom-com with Katherine Heigl...

Regardless, the movie wasn't bad. It falls into that purgatory of 'entertaining enough to rent, not entertaining enough to own' sort of category. The plot was complex enough that I wasn't rolling my eyes throughout and kept me guessing, which is always a plus in an action movie.

I'm not a huge fan of Elizabeth Banks, or really anyone that appears in a Judd Apatow movie (I know, I know, there are people out there that love his movies - you are the people that allow him to continue his string of adults-acting-like-adolescents raunchy 'comedies'), so the fact that she doesn't ruin the movie with her presence is a triumph for me.

Final word: Not bad.
