TOWER HEIST - Blu-ray review

moviemet.com
19 April 2012
  • Summary: Ratner's latest production is a generic comedy that matches its unimaginative title. Yet, it is a slickly shot picture and the imminently likeable cast generates enough goodwill to make it a fun hour and forty five minutes.

Tower Heist

High-Def Digest
21 February 2012
  • Conclusion: 'Tower Heist' had two things working against it: one, the terrible trailer, and two, director Brett Ratner. When I screened it theatrically, I expected to hate it – but it actually defied the odds and kept my attention. The first act gives it an unfunny, rocky start, but once Eddie Murphy's character enters the mix, 'Tower Heist' improves rapidly. Everything seems to get better with his entrance.

Tower Heist Blu-ray Review

21 February 2012
  • Excerpt: The Movie Tower Heist takes us behind-the-scenes with the world's best crew at the world's priciest, most exclusive residence, home to movie stars and moguls. Led by the good-hearted, extremely capable Josh (Ben Stiller), these building employees bond as a sort of blue-collar family, while doing everything to keep the white-collar tenants happy.

Tower Heist Blu-ray Review

6 February 2012
  • Conclusion: Tower Heist may be a poor man's Ocean's Eleven (sprinkled with just enough pointed economic angst to make it timely), but it can also be a lot of fun... if taken on its own terms. Murphy tries too hard and Broderick doesn't try hard enough, but the rest of the cast stands firm, making the film's low-rent heist a high-roller blast best served with a bucket of popcorn and low expectations.

Tower Heist

Cinema Blend

  • Excerpt: Not unlike the busy-bee staff at the apartment building of its title, Tower Heist makes sure that you, the customer, have not a worry in the world while you're in it. Complex characters and complicated plots are done away with, replaced with story machinery that hums along as smoothly and pleasantly as a luxury car engine.

Tower Heist

AV Club
3 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Like the scheming protagonists in the slick caper Tower Heist , the film’s creators had some big plans that didn’t exactly work out. The film was first pitched as a black Ocean’s Eleven that would pair producer/star Eddie Murphy with a who’s-who of black comic talent, and climax with a heist involving Donald Trump and the Trump Tower.
