With Wit, Reviewed By Kimmo Mustonenen

Action and adventure in January?

What is this film “Man on a Ledge”?

Is Hollywood sucking more smoky bong openings than film reviewers (ME!)?

Oh, my mind anticipates with wet quivering smart action fun.

Also smart.  But no.

July movie in January – but July/January movie has no boobs or explosions.  At least not like July movie.

This confusion haunts my brain-stem and makes thinking hurt.

Plot?  I think so.

Nick Cassidy (Sam Worthington) was once a successful and highly respected cop until one day he was arrested for a robbery he never committed (really?  This defense works as often as “Glee” makes sense).

As a cop, he also sits years later under difficult conditions in the prison where he has to defend his fellow prisoners in the first place.  Especially the soap dropping prisoners.  They need defending.  From rape.  In the butt.

Completely desperate, he uses the first available opportunity to escape and increases with an elaborate plan on the window ledge of a New York hotel (original!), where he soon gets the attention of passers-by and the police.

The police recognize him – because they’re smart.

Rodgers, Dee Schuka, Michael James 'Scotty' Scott, Alexis Page Smith, Carla Snowden, Lora Sorrentino, Michael Vastano, Claire Wiegand, Canella Williams, Leah Winkler, David YoonDuring his conversation with the psychologist Lydia Anderson (Elizabeth Banks) time trying to give, this is still for a second plan.

At the same time break his brother Joey (Jamie Bell) and his girlfriend Nina (Pooja Kumar) in the adjacent high-rise of the industrial David Englander (Ed Harris) to the allegedly stolen diamonds now really stealing.

While Nick is running (shuffling) out on the windowsill, the time begins not only the special police unit to be restless, but also those corrupt colleagues who were involved in the diamond robbery at the time.

Corrupt colleagues are the suck.

How far would a man go when he is accused wrongly and arrested for something he has never committed?

Well, out on a ledge – that’s for sure.

Then run!  On a ledge!

Son of a bitch – a man is on a ledge!

The marquee did not lie on me!

There is really a MAN ON A LEDGE!

The he gets off of it.

Other shit happens, too.

“Man on a Ledge” brings to fans of this genre, unfortunately, not much new with it.

While the cast – led by Elizabeth Banks and Sam Worthington – truly deliver a solid performance and blend together perfectly, the story still runs off to familiar patterns.

Maybe it should be then “Man In A Phone Booth”.  Because that has never been done.

Conclusion:  Wait until the lateness of March and rent.  It will please your eye orbs more on your cool HDTV and cheaper than cinema.  And you can make to fire up your pipe without old people (like mothballs and urine smell) telling you against lighting up.

Chill, old people.  Take a hit.  Your jello will never cover your tongue with more joy after the sweet, sweet smoke.

This I know.  Trust Kimmo.

P.S.  Stop NOW the reading of this!  Go see “The Artist”.  Go see “The Descendants”.  Maybe even “The Iron Giant’s Lady”.

Beware!  The summer film shit storm is on the horizon… and then the suck really starts.

Please Mayans – be right!
