man on a ledge

the year: 2012

the genre: suspense

the cast: Sam Worthington (Nick Cassidy); Elizabeth Banks (Lydia Mercer); Ed Harris (David Englander); Jamie Bell (Joey Cassidy); Edward Burns (Jack Dougherty)

the plot: As a police psychologist works to talk down an ex-con who is threatening to jump from a Manhattan hotel rooftop, the biggest diamond heist ever committed is in motion...

don't miss: Jack Dougherty - I think he's my favorite character.

did you know: All of the wide shots of the actors on the ledge were real. Restraining cables were either hidden from camera view or edited out in post.


listen for: Yes. Mr. Walker. Room 2105, South Tower. Great view. We also have a larger unit available on the east side, I can offer you at the same price.
No, I think I'll stick with the view.

also listen for: First, cut the red wire.
Red wire? They're all red wires!
Babe, pick the reddest one.

extra bonus points: if you know how Nick stops Englander from getting away.
