5.0 out of 5 stars Compassion vs religious blind belief 18 July 2012
The Ledge is a stunningly intelligent film that explores life at many levels; beliefs, morals, commitment, gender politics, religion, loyalty, and above all, betrayal. For such a simple movie it punches well above its weight.

Perhaps a little slow in its narrative for some viewers, I found it to be perfectly balanced, although I confess that elements of it fit in with my view of the world and my understanding of the destructive power of religious fundamentalism.

OK, so I have given a quite a bit away, but this film is more than just about religion; its about morals in general, love and charity, and above all about the narcissistic arrogance of judgementalism.

I recently reviewed a film with a similar starting premise, 'Man On A Ledge', but all you ended up with was a dumb downed tale of greed and corruption. In The Ledge you get the whole of life in a nutshell portrayed in a simple tale by a first class cast.

Rock on for intelligent films like this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a watch.. a stylish thriller. 23 April 2012
This film was definately worth a watch.. especially on a rainy day.. (as it is today..) OK. This flick tells the story of Gavin, an athiest who crosses swords with Joe, a Christian extremist. Caught in the middle is Shanna, Joe's wife.
As Gavin strikes a relationship with Shanna, Joe puts Gavin to the ultimate test.. his faith, or the lack of it?

Pretty cool film, a very stylish thriller. Kept me thinking about the worse is going to happen between the characters.

Also some good extras.. Interview with Terence Howard, Patrick Wilson and Charlie Hunnam.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tale of morality 22 May 2012
By Robert
This film examines the concept of morality through the stories of 4 main characters that are interwoven, each has there own religious view point and the plot interweaves them well illustrating how belief or lack of it is no good barometer of a persons character.

Its not your typical action packed thriller nor is it a slushy romance, it lies well between being cerebral enough to inspire thought, exciting enough to keep you watching and brave enough to dispense with the Hollywood text book.

All in all, a very good watch, one you can sit down with the Mrs with getting brownie points for watching a chick flick without having to pretend to enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars climbing high to see the depths of the soul 22 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"The Ledge" is a philosophical thriller that starts with a man climbing to the top of a building clearly intending to jump. A police officer is assigned to talk him down and the conversation that follows - the core of the film in flashback - explores questions of morality, courage and the meaning of life without belief in God. Thus one reason I like this film is that is speaks for me.

Importantly other perspectives are offered and I think given fair treatment. The only real issue I have is that the evangelical never came across as likeable. True he was censorious and intrusive over homosexuality and that I think was fair and accurate. But all evangelicals I have known have been ordinary, likeable people despite their belief system. So I am struck by the thought, that the evangelical that this character was modeled on, was a younger, more religious me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving and very insightful 14 Aug 2012
By Lynchen
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this film a lot.
It is far more than Amazon's description implies. It works on different layers to show complex characters and the situations they face. It shows a great deal of empathy and insight.
I especially enjoyed the interaction between the protagonist and the detective. They both cared to understand the situation of the other person and tried to help while respecting each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC - Must see. 7 May 2012
I don't think the above description really explains the crux of this movie at all. The story jumps back and and forth between the past (and story how Shana and Gavin met) and the present (where Gavin is speaking with the negotiator).

The film explores the 'religious zealot' but not in the way that films normally do, as a Christian, I recognised WHY Joe felt those things (even if I don't agree with him) which gave it an extra dimension for me.

There is a lot going on in this film, every character is well thought out and deep with multiple layers being unpeeled as the film progresses.

It is very compelling and when finished, has left me thinking on it for days. - I'm actually on the website to purchase the DVD having rented it 3 days ago!
