        The Ledge is uneven but interesting enough. The film's atheism is a bit unfair and embarrassing. Hard to be a fan of the lead actor's performance (was very casual), however Terrence Howard and Liv Tyler play their parts well and make the film more serious than it otherwise would be.

        This is one of those films that has had the some fairly negative press, but it isn't as bad as it might seem. The idea here is quite good, but due to the fact that it mixes multiple genres and it's a film that doesn't know what it really tries to be. It's not a bad idea, but the film feels rushed in its ideas, and it doesn't try to elaborate in what it presents us in the film's story. The film presents good ideas as well, but it never really explores in depth what it suggests, and it's disappointing because if the ideas really would have been better developed, The Ledge would really have been a great film. This is a good affair, but it could have been so much more as well. The cast is quite impressive, and there are some good performances here as well. The Ledge isn't a perfect film, but it manages to be entertaining for what it tries to do. If the script would have been reworked slightly with some of its ideas better developed, then I think that the film would really have been a great affair. Though not perfect, The Ledge doesn't deserve the flack it has received, it's a film that manages to have good ideas in its plot that make for a good viewing experience. But since they are a bit underdeveloped, you simply are left wanting more out of the film. The film does have some tense moments, and has an interesting idea on faith, which is something we rarely see in films, and it pulls it off nicely.

        I love, Charlie Hunnam. I am a big fan of his acting and looks. ;} But this movie just didn't do it for me. The story wasn't twisted or mysterious enough for me. Plus the ending sucked. I was hoping for a different outcome. The characters weren't that interesting and lacked depth. I couldn't bring myself to care for them and for what happened to them. Terrence Howard's acting is something I still find hard to like. I don't know what it is about the guy, but he just doesn't do it for me. It was a decent film, but if not for Charlie I wouldn't have rated it what I did or even given the movie a chance considering the plot of the film. If you choose to pass you wouldn't be missing anything.

        "The Ledge" begins with Detective Hollis Lucetti(Terrence Howard) getting some bad news from his doctor(Geraldine Singer). That being said, he is still having a better day than Gavin(Charlie Hunnam), a hotel assistant manager who is threatening to jump from a building in downtown Baton Rouge. As Gavin tells it, this all started shortly after Harper(Jillian Batherson) announced her plans to have a religious experience with a dildo that night when he hires his neighbor Shana(Liv Tyler). As thanks, her husband Joe(Patrick Wilson) invites Gavin and his gay roommate Chris(Christopher Gorham) for dinner, where thinking they are both gay, prays for them. Ironically enough, he may soon wish Gavin was gay... "The Ledge" gets off to a fine start with a lovely shot of the skyline and the immortal line: "How long have I been infertile?"(oops!) which says so very much. The fact that the rest of the movie drones on incessantly while saying little should give you an idea as to how dull this is, even with the stakes as high as they are. That's not to mention how little of this makes any kind of sense but at least there is a fine use of mass transit in a small city. The lengthy flashbacks sideline the always welcome Terrence Howard for long stretches in favor of the limited talents of Charlie Hunnam. That leaves one feeling sorry for Liv Tyler, caught up in the eternal debate between two intractable sides.(What is it with the South and religion, anyway?) Making Gavin a douche and Joe a volunteer does not come close to making them three dimensional characters. Just remember, as far as hell goes, Louisiana had plenty of experience of that with Hurricane Katrina.
