5.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of fights
Unusual but great, trapped in a building and the only way out is on the top floor, now that sounds easy just catch a elevator and your there, well not quite as there are a few objects that get in your way. A couple of knives and guns that are carried by an army of gangland clowns, you know the type a dime a dozen, the fighting is fantastic but too over done. The thrills...

3.0 out of 5 stars Should have moved to the other side of the building...
A young man is chased by two thugs in the titular building and killed.

Moving on a few months, the tower block is closing and the only residents that are left are in the top floor, and would you believe it? Some dirty rotter starts taking pot shots at them.

And they are really good, because they only have to stick their head or hand up near the...

2.0 out of 5 stars Slow, dull and dissappointing, 29 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tower Block [Blu-ray] [2012] (Blu-ray)
When I saw the trailer for this I thought it looked like a great thriller, it looked fast paced and bloody.
The blu ray itself comes with a cool lenticular case, the features are dissappointing with just a small making of.
The film was ok, the acting was really good, some of the camera work was good too but it lacked any suspense, I didn't care if anyone beside Sheridan smith died and the third and final act was slower than the first two.
If you want to see it RENT IT, DON'T BUY IT.

This review is from: Tower Block [Blu-ray] [2012] (Blu-ray)
Maybe I would have given it 3 stars Hax The ending been different And stronger, but The point is That The story unfolds in a not so thrilling And original way And, when it comes to an end, all your expectatlons that a twist will save The day get frustrated. It seems They didn't care much bout The script

4.0 out of 5 stars A brutal thriller that melds 'broken britain' with horror shocks, 6 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Tower Block [Blu-ray] [2012] (Blu-ray)
Tower Block isn't shy about it's exploitation film roots - it wants to paint a picture of 'broken Britain' that feels like reality, and then cover it in blood.
Becky (Sheridan Smith) and the remaining top-floor residents of her grimy tower block are the last people remaining before the developers can finally demolish it and start making some money. Tensions are running high. The Police can't get anyone to talk despite knowing they all witnessed a fatal beating on their floor. And the residents can't leave soon enough.
And then their petty tensions and disagreements start to mean nothing, as one morning in their now empty and derelict suburb, a killer with a silenced sniper rifle starts punching holes in their apartments and trying to kill them one by one...
The directors have assembled a very varied cast, and the actors do a good job with their roles. We get a loyal older couple, parents with a Call of Duty obsessed teenager, two local wannabe thugs, the local 'actual' thug who threatens people for their protection money, and an appalling mother with two neglected kids. All of them are played well (some better than others) but 'Being Human' actor Russell Tovey makes an impact as an alcoholic, Smith is good as the central lead, but Jack O'Connell is standout as the cocky Kurtis, veering between comic relief and appalling sociopathic scum with a brilliantly entertaining performance that might not be subtle but should garner him further attention.
The plot isn't great stuff (it's a little obvious in places) and the final reveal isn't the greatest, but the tension is kept high and the cruelty, gore and brutality are harsh enough to guarantee that it will keep those after adrenaline and shocks entertained for the running time.
Well worth viewing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something Different., 16 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tower Block [DVD] (DVD)
Like the movie as I have not seen anything similar to the storyline. Realistic set, a very good mix of characters, capable actors and moves along at a good pace after the first shooting. Also a surprise ending as far as the villian is concerned.
