Critic Reviews for The Tower

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

"The Tower" is an angry, ambitious and often moving film from an underrepresented group, but its story might have been told more effectively in live action.

Its animation, a mix of different styles, is breathtaking, the labor an appropriate homage to the struggles it depicts.

An evocative view of the Palestinian crisis.

It's a point of view that we rarely get... The problem is that it is not technically strong enough to carry the story that it is trying to tell.
