Frequently Bought Together
One tower block. Fifteen tenants. One sniper.
Someone is picking off the last remaining occupants of a tower block, using a high powered, silenced rifle. Nobody else has heard the shots, and no help is coming. If the terrified victims can't figure out how to escape, they're all going to be killed, one by one.
With career-defining performances from Sheridan Smith, Jack O’Connell, Russell Tovey, Kano and Ralph Brown, this fantastically gripping British thriller is a movie not to be missed.

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 window and its instant death....
Despite the fact that the premise is a bit silly, and all they had to do was to stay on the other side of the tower block, this film is a solid thriller, with great performances from Smith and O'Connell.
But a lot of work could have been done on the characters. We have all the generic parts you would expect from a movie.
The two Gangsters who may or may not have a secret.
The husband and wife who have been there for years.
A mother and child, who have just lost the man in their life.
The girl who everyone thinks is scum, but really has a heart of gold.
The lad who fancies the above.
And the hard man who everyone hates/fears, but comes good at the end.
And its if they all pick a ticket with a number on to see who gets offed first. If you take plausibility and throw it out of the window, its a good 90 minutes of no brain, tense action.
Its a shame it didn't get a wider release, but released so soon after The Raid, and Attack the Block, people must have had council flat fatigue...
The setting gives the film a claustrophobic feel because once the sniper starts shooting there's nowhere for the characters to go. They do of course make a few efforts to escape, only to find the killer is always one step ahead of them. This offers up some of the best surprises in the film.
The performances of the cast are convincing too, thanks in no small part to a decent script. Sheridan Smith holds the film together well with a strong central performance, ably supported by Jack O'Connell and Del Preston from Wayne's World (apparently his real name is Ralph Brown, but he'll always be Del Preston to me!).
Tower Block could have been a one trick movie that ran out of steam after half an hour, but fortunately it has enough surprises to keep the viewer gripped for the full 90 minutes. And unlike many films from this genre you can never be quite sure who will survive and who will get killed. Great stuff.
