Man on a Ledge

as told to Nicole Kato

Where and with whom did you see the movie?

I saw it at Ward Centers with four of my friends.

Overall what did you think?

It was OK. It was one of those movies where everyone has done the plot already, so I could tell what was going on halfway through the movie.

Without giving away the ending, what was one of your favorite scenes?

Sam Worthing’s (who plays Nick Cassidy, the man on the ledge) brother Joey (played by Jamie Bell) and girlfriend Angie (Genesis Rodriguez) have comedic lines in the movie.

Whenever they were in the movie, those were the best parts.

On a scale of one to four stars, what would you rate this film?

★★ 1/2.

What did you think of the cinematography?

I thought it was good. It was definitely a Hollywood movie.

The stunts toward the end were a little unrealistic, though.

Did it remind you of any other work in film?

It reminded me of a few different films like Tower Heist and a couple other ones. You know, the typical distract you and they pull off a heist.

To whom would you recommend this movie?

I would recommend you wait until it comes out on DVD, and not because it was bad, it was just not a blockbuster.

I fly a lot, and it’s a good movie to watch while you’re on a plane.

Did any of the actors stand out?

Jamie Bell (brother) and Genesis Rodriguez (girlfriend) stole the movie.

Did you identify with any of the characters?

The sense of humor of Jamie Bell and Genesis Rodriguez would be something like me.

What’s your favorite movie snack?

Popcorn and kakimochi.

But they really need to add nuts in the popcorn and kakimochi, like macadamia nuts or mixed nuts.

On a different note, what’s new with you?

I have a brand new app called “Pidgin101″ available for iPhone and Android that costs 99 cents.

I also have a wine called “Look Me In the Eye” that is available in red and white. You can get them at any wine store in the state that you can think of.

But the most important thing I think that’s on television now is that I’m fighting identity theft in Hawaii. If there is anyone who needs help with identity theft, feel free to email me at lanai@me.com.
