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.

Beyond 15 Minutes

Normally, YouTube bestows its 15 minutes of stardom upon talentless daredevils and shameless pranksters. But cellists Luka Šulić, 25, and Stjepan Hauser, 24, broke the norm—they actually have talent. In January 2011, these two friends from Croatia, who go by the name 2Cellos, appeared out of the blue with a four-minute and five-second YouTube clip, and their life has never been the same.
