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.
