Man on a Ledge (Sam Worthington, Elizabeth Banks) -- May 29, 2012

http://www.dvdactive.com/news/releas...e=1#post193717


Summit Entertainment has announced DVD ($26.99) and Blu-ray ($30.49) releases of Man on a Ledge which stars Sam Worthington, Elizabeth Banks, Ed Harris, and Jamie Bell. Each will be available to own from May 29th. According to the trade advertisement below, the only extras will be a featurette ("The Ledge"), and the trailer with commentary by Elizabeth Banks.

Seriously? A commentary track on a 2 1/2 minute trailer? That's pretty sad that Summit couldn't get her to do a commentary for the movie.

Is this worth at least a rental? I was interested in seeing it, but it got horrible reviews and obviously it bombed in the box office.

Okay, so my local video store put this out early and I decided to rent it tonight.

Overall, it's a decent B movie and a good time waster. I was impressed with the cast they got for it (Ed Burns, Kyra Sedgwick, Titus Welliver, Ed Harris, William Sadler) in addition to Banks and Worthington.

Some suspenseful moments and good action scenes, but it's a pretty ludicrous plot.

And the extras for the BD and DVD suck. A 15 minute EPK and yes, Elizabeth Banks does indeed do a lame commentary track for a fucking trailer.

Really Summitt? They couldn't entice her to sit down and watch the entire movie???

This is a total rental. I would not recommend a purchase.

I do have to say that Elizabeth Banks was gorgeous in this movie, even when they attempted to make her look rough.
