    "Man on a Ledge" has that feel of a 1st year screenwriter's attempt to script a movie about a man who escapes from the law, and later appears on the ledge of a New York hotel, causing a commotion, while his brother and girlfriend are breaking into a nearby building to steal something worth the risk of such a plan. Not too many surprises, and is burdened by that "script-by-numbers" feel. But, even so, the acting cast (Sam Worthington, Elizabeth Banks, Billy Bell, Ed Harris, Kyra Sedgewick, Ed Burns, and Anthony Mackie) somewhat tries to elevate the material, but in the end, it's not much more than a decent matinee flick. I will say that Genesis Rodriguez is fiery and smoking, pretty much the only one who feels like she has a pulse in the film. I give it 2 stars, or a grade of C.
