Format: DVD
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.

Format: DVD
Gavin (Charlie Hunnam) is a faithless jumper on a ledge. Terrence Howard plays Hollis, a police officer whose job it is to talk him down. The story as to how he got to the ledge is a flashback and the main part of the movie. This is interrupted by scenes of Hollis confronting his wife, which we don't know if these are flashbacks or if this is something he is thinking about doing.

Gavin is a hotel manager. His roommate is a gay Jew and HIV positive. Liv Tyler plays his mousey neighbor married to an unlikable Christian who wants to convert gays and atheists. Liv gets a job working for Gavin, who wants to liberate her from Mr. Joe Christian. I grew weary of the stereotyping of both Christians and atheists before this thing was half over... Catholics burn in hell and atheists are atheists because of some event in their life to make them hate God. Later the movie deviates from the stereotypes. Christians are not always good and atheists are not always bad. They are both human. Ho-hum.

Joe Christian treats his wife like dirt. Liv Tyler tells a far fetched story on how she met Joe, who as it turns out is a bit psychotic. The movie starts out slow and draws you in to where you have to see what happens. It doesn't make any definitive statement about God or atheism.

F-bomb, sex talk, sex, nudity (Liv Tyler)

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Jones the Film on 18 July 2012
Format: DVD
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.

wasn't what I expected (think I remembered the wrong trailer) rather a slow film, good roles, well acted, but predictable and no real tension!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Robert on 22 May 2012
Format: DVD
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.

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.

Definitely a must see movie. One that did not hit the theaters in my area, so I completely discovered it on this blu-ray.No regrets at all !

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.
