Editorial Reviews

Gavin (Charlie Hunnam, Cold Mountain) is on the ledge.  Hollis (Terrence Howard, Crash), who just learned that he is not the biological father of his children, is tasked with talking Gavin down.  Their conversation eventually reveals Gavin s deep-rooted conflict with his fundamentalist Christian neighbor Joe (Patrick Wilson, Watchmen), whose theological opposition to Gavin was intensified by Gavin s gay roommate and later by Joe s wife's infidelity. The negotiations take a drastic turn when Hollis learns that Gavin has a deadline, and his life is not the only one hanging in the balance.  Writer/director Matthew Chapman (Runaway Jury) returns after a long hiatus to helm this unpredictable thriller that asks challenging questions about faith and reason; the nature of belief; and the value of human life.

"I have to stay up here until noon and then jump, if I don't someone
else is gonna die." Hollis (Howard) job is to talk down suicide
jumpers, after finding out that his kids may not be his he is sent out
to talk to Gavin (Hunnam). But there are always two sides to every
story and Gavin is not on the ledge by choice. This is the type of
movie that you watch because of the cast and end up being blown away.
While the movie is a little slow in parts the message, acting and plot
are great. All four main characters in this movie are all conflicted
and each have their own choice to make in order to move on with their
lives and it is intriguing to watch all of them handle it. At it's core
this is a movie about faith and morals and will leave you questioning
yourself as to what you would do in each position. That is the sign of
a good movie, one that makes you look at yourself in a way you may not
have before. Overall, I highly recommend this movie. More movies should
be like this. I give it a B+.

Would I watch again? - I think I would in order to catch everything,
there is so much to take in you may not be able to get it all the first
time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film! January 3, 2012
By Tim K
Format:DVD
I've been waiting months to see this and I finally have. I loved every minute of it.

The atheistic message is pronounced, but has everything to do with the story. Don't expect to be 'preached' at or anything, but the religious message is great. Being an atheist, I'm glad that a nonbeliever took center stage and the story was about the struggle between faith and rationality. The movie was wonderfully cast as well.

At the end, I had tears in my eyes. This was a powerful film about love and overcoming obstacles. This film may even make you view the world differently. And hey, the movie ended in a very unexpected way.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first and only atheist movie I've ever seen. October 20, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The Ledge is fantastic. I've seen controversial religious movies, but never an atheist flick (Religulous doesn't count as Maher proclaims staunch agnosticism in the film). *Mild Spoiler*-The best thing is that the question atheists hate most was posed about halfway through- "Why do you hate god?" I appreciate that the protagonist was portrayed as a human being and not as a baby eater.

Any atheist or atheist-friendly person would enjoy this movie. Any theist would be entertained if they watch with a relatively open mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see if you enjoy thinking! February 4, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I usually don't write reviews, but this movie happens to be worth reviewing in more ways than one. This movie may not be the best film out there or even have the best dialog, but it does make you think and that in and of itself makes it worth 5 stars. Too often atheists are viewed in a negative light and while I don't agree with what his character did to cause him to be on the ledge I can see how it could've happened. The evangelical character also does an excellent job of portraying many things that are wrong with fanatical religious beliefs and what can happen when they are taken to the extreme. I'm looking forward to watching this again with friends and purchasing another copy to donate to our local library for anyone else who may be interested in watching it.

Great movie. It was nothing that I expected! It kept me guessing until the very end.
Charlie Hunnam, and Terrance Howard really shined as actors in this movie!
I would recommend this movie to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping thriller with a rare protagonist June 27, 2011
By Paul
This is a very emotional film, love story, drama, and the only major motion picture I can recall in which the main character is a non-believer. It gives the viewer a great deal to think about along the way and lots more to think about long after its over. It's not the best film ever made, but it earns five stars because it charts new territory and it's a surprisingly GOOD film.

Format:DVD
A police detective who has just received shattering personal news is dispatched to talk a potential jumper off a ledge, only to discover that he has to jump or else someone he loves will die. Add to that immediately gripping opening scene some superb acting from all involved, as well as a strong & thought-provoking screenplay, and you've got a film well worth watching, and then discussing at length afterwards.

So why do some reviews call it too contrived & thus unwatchable?

I suggest that the current obsession with so-called "realism" in contemporary entertainment is to blame. Yes, the story is a bit stagey ... but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Ironically, for a film about atheism & fundamentalism at odds, it's very much like a Medieval mystery play, in which characters represent certain specific worldviews or aspects of human existence. In short, it's as much allegory as straight narrative. This was once an acceptable form of storytelling, as can be seen in quite a few films & TV shows from the 1950s & 1960s. Now, however, the emphasis on a rather generic & homogenized "realism" -- which is in fact just as contrived & artificial as any other form of storytelling in the end -- makes it difficult for some viewers to enter into the story & its ideas.

Don't let that deter you from seeing it, though. Unlike so many formulaic & empty film spectacles these days, "The Ledge" offers an intense story with well-rounded characters, as well as plenty of ideas to grapple with: ideas about faith, about belief, about love, about self-sacrifice, about the meaning of life (or whether there is any such meaning at all). Again, the characters are in part allegorical ones ...
