Man on a Ledge

(PG-13) ★★☆☆☆

Sam Worthington plays an ex-cop and a convicted thief on the lam, and he’s threatening suicide, confined to a thin sliver of concrete for much of the film’s 102 minutes. With Elizabeth Banks as a police negotiator, Anthony Mackie as a colleague from the police force and Ed Harris as the monster capitalist owner of a stolen diamond, the supporting cast does well here. But the too-busy screenplay and our lack of engagement suck all the enjoyment out of this one.

Kid Rock

By Jack Halloween

At the ripe old age of 41, Kid Rock is leaving his hard-rock roots in favor of a Southern rock/county sound. And on this night, it worked: The sometimes-rapper had the audience singing and dancing to hit after hit. Hinting that he has no plans of slowing down, Rock covered the John Eddie song “Forty” and emphasized these lyrics: Well, I guess I’m fucking 40/but Bruce Springsteen is 62/and The Stones are almost dead.
