Sam Worthington is an escaped convict attempting to prove his innocence in the most elaborate way possible: He climbs out onto a hotel ledge and creates a suicide spectacle/diversion that allows his brother (Jamie Bell) to steal a diamond from an iniquitous real estate baron played with a perpetual scowl by Ed Harris. It's all ostensibly part of a master plan, as is his requesting Elizabeth Banks' beleaguered negotiator.

What's Good About the Movie:
Well I went to see this movie because there wasn't anything else I wanted to see and I am glad I did. After pushing this one aside, I came away thinking it was kinda worth a look. The way the movie progressed and kept you on the end of your seat @ times REALLY worked for me and the pay off @ the end made the bad things about the movie so, so.

What's Bad About the Movie:
There were some plot holes that left me feeling like huh? Sam's character was told that his father was sick by his former police partner and he died a scene of two later and this is when his escape plan came into play. What I found interesting about this is scene is that his former partner is a police officer so he should know if Sam's father ACTUALLY died. And the other scene that bugs me is the fact that in his escape, his vehicle was hit by a train and Sam came through that without a scratch.

Overall Grade: C-
