Brittany Ashworth, who plays Kelly, is a warrior in this film. She is more adept and physically capable than the men at scaling the mountain. A strength and detriment to her as the plot progresses throughout the film. The movie moves a breakneck pace after the introduction and once the chase is on the story doesn’t take its foot off the gas until the credits.
It’s not an academy award winner and it won’t be in top 10 best films of the year, however The Ledge is a worthwhile film that will leave you on the edge of your seat throughout.
