Thoughts on The Ledge

ThoughtsThe Ledge uses the simple concept of having the one person hiding out in their strength on a mountain range, where the criminals are looking to catch them, but lack the skills to get to them. Now, for the simple idea, this is all it needs to be, but the story puts a lot more focus on the dynamic between the male friends and whether they agree with what happened or how it happened, than the intensity that could have been placed on the battle to survive. The Ledge will turn more into the waiting game, never giving Brittany Ashworth or her character Kelly enough to focus on the physical side of what would have been expected about the role. The Ledge is a thriller that could easily have been a lot more intense, but sadly falls into trying to show the battle between friends for what is right.

Final Thoughts The Ledge is a thriller that never connects the intensity it could have had.
