Man on a Ledge (2012)

This is a solid movie. Nick Cassady (Sam Worthington) is a former policeman who escaped from prison where he was sentenced to 25 years for stealing a $40 million diamond from businessman David Englander (Ed Harris). He pays for a room on the 21st floor at the Roosevelt Hotel using a false name. He steps out onto a ledge and it appears to the crowd below that is going to jump. Negotiator Lydia Mercer is called in and she is still feeling guilty about a previous suicide she was unable to prevent. Nick is actually putting on a demonstration to pull away attention from his brother and his brother's girlfriend while they attempt to break into David Englander's jewelry vault.
