Man on a Ledge - Movie Synopsis & Plot
An ex-cop and now wanted fugitive (Sam Worthington) stands on the ledge of a high-rise building while a hard-living New York Police Department hostage negotiator (Elizabeth Banks) tries to talk him down. The longer they are on the ledge, the more she realizes that he might have an ulterior objective.
Worthington ("Avatar") and Banks ("The Next Three Days") star among an ensemble cast including Anthony Mackie ("The Hurt Locker"), who portrays Worthington's best friend and ally and Jamie Bell ("Billy Elliot") who is Worthington's younger brother and ardent supporter. Also along for the ride is four-time Oscar nominee Ed Harris ("Pollock") who plays a powerful businessman, while Edward Burns ("27 Dresses") is a rival negotiator who tries to swoop in when he believes Banks has a conflict of interest. Newcomer Genesis Rodriguez ("Casa di me Padre") plays Bell's girlfriend who along with Bell, tries to prove Worthington's innocence.
