Lionsgate Home Entertainment has announced the date and released artwork for the thriller, Man on a Ledge starring Sam Worthington, Elizabeth Banks, Jamie Bell, Anthony Mackie, Genesis Rodriguez and Ed Harris. Click on the link below or image to the left to check out the features and artwork.
Admittedly, the plot for Man on a Ledge is on the preposterous side with sizeable plot holes but given what it is and the cast gathered, I was still rather entertained. Sam Worthington is for once able to hold his own, albeit with a weaker script, and the supporting cast is impressive. The Blu-ray offers good video and audio transfer but utterly drops the ball in the features department.
The Adventures of Tintin is an admirable project headed by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson. The animation is gorgeous and gone is the creepy factor that plagued other mo-cap flicks such as Mars Needs Moms. And yet, the story itself never quite gets off the ground between mind-numbing numerous action sequences and, worst of all, paper thin characters who, save for Braddock, are so boring that it’s hard to really care about their journey.
While the picture and audio Quality are top notch and the disc is filled with hours of bonus features, it’s hard to recommend a purchase. This is an entertaining flick but not something I plan on going back to until its inevitable sequel comes out. It’s still a great rental an excellent popcorn flick for the entire family.
