This melodrama stays true to its title, though there's a bit more to it. Sam Worthington plays the man literally perched on a New York ledge, an ex-cop who's the prime suspect in a diamond theft.
While his precarious position draws the attention of the media and a police negotiator (Elizabeth Banks), his brother (Jamie Bell) works across the street on a plan to clear his name and expose the true culprits. Kyra Sedgwick, Ed Harris, Edward Burns and William Sadler also are in the noteworthy cast. DVD extras: theatrical trailer with audio commentary by Banks; "making-of" documentary. *** (PG-13: P, V) (Also on Movies on Demand and Blu-ray)Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
