Excerpt: There is not much to say about ‘Tower Heist’. It’s a generic action comedy from sleek Hollywood director Brett Rainer. I’m not a fan of Rainer’s style of filmmaking. I liked a couple of his ‘Rush Hour’ movies and Red Dragon (his best film thus far), but nearly killed the X-Men series with X3: The Last Stand because he replaced efficient storytelling and well-rounded characters with sloppy melodrama and quick-cut action sequences.
Excerpt: Director Bret Ratner went from top of the demanding list with Rush Hour to the shit list when he butchered the X-Men franchise with his Last Stand. Now he reunites some old 80's favorites with stiff neck comedian Ben Stiller for this goofy far fetched heist flick. Although I'll give props to how the money is hidden.
Excerpt: So it wasn't as funny as I had hoped..But the story was well paced..Good acting...Murphy, Leone, Broderick really show their age in this one...All in all one to add to the collection to watch again some time on down the road...
Summary: This was a awesome film and so funny it was nice to see Matthew Broderick again he is my favourite actor and idol he is the reason i watch movies and Ben Stiller was really funny as well hope they make a sequel.
Conclusion: Tower Heist isn't the funniest film of the year but it's great fun! Eddie Murphy is brilliant and Ben Stiller is great as usual. This is a really enjoyable film that is good for people who don't like crude, sweary comedies. Check it out, I had great fun!
