Product Description

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.

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 are involved plus a few twist and turns that are thrown in to keep the fast pace of the movie going. So there is more than that, so it's for you to find out about, suspense with a mixture of cops and baddies and on every floor gets a bit rough so I rated this an A grade for trying and with a bit of luck will sit back next time for a little bit less action and more story. Actors performed extra well and story not to bad but could have been better, only my outlook so now it's your turn to find out more, gather up the popcorn plus the movie find your favourite chair and try to relax with your feet up and get on with the marvellous entertainment waiting to be played. Enjoy!

Absolutely thrilling film with brilliant casting and suspense all the way. I did wonder how a film taking place in a tower block would work but it did and had me enthralled and at times hiding behind my cushion.

From the supremely nasty opener to the impressive close this film never lets up. Violent? Oh, yes! Torture porn? Hell no. And with Russell Tovey AND Jack O'Connell in the same film it's essential viewing. Not for the faint of heart, mind. And the film does not pull any punches in the unflinching realism of life in squalor (or near squalor). Some nice performances here too make for a striking Brit film. There's even a sort of explosion. And the best use of a nail gun since that film whose name I forget. I counted two uses of the C word. And multiple uses of the F word. No flying blood tho.

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 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...

Exciting story line you'd expect to be from a Hollywood studio but it takes place on home ground which makes it just that bit more riveting, just that bit more palpable and that bit more convincing and it could have gone all wrong but didn't. Great cast too, Sheridan Smith, excellent again.

Tower Block is a great advert for Brit flicks. After a seemingly endless stream of inferior Lock Stock rip offs by Brit filmmakers we're finally getting some original ideas again. Attack The Block was a great example and more recently Cockneys vs Zombies. Tower Block continues this trend by embracing its small budget in the same way that John Carpenter did back in the day with films like Assault on Precinct 13 and Prince of Darkness. Setting almost the entire film in the confines of a grimy Tower Block means that more effort is put into plot, character development and pacing rather than showy scenery.
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.
