Critic Reviews for Tower Block
The film is efficiently made and more realist than some of its ilk, in that the desperate inhabitants seem credible. What it lacks is directorial flair.
It's not a bad idea for a movie, but what we get is undercooked, with poor logic and even poorer pacing conspiring to prevent any much-needed tension to build.
At very best, this cheap horror is a run-of-the-mill British exploitation flick with nothing new to say; at worst, it's classist, deeply conservative and completely narrow-minded.
Though suspension of disbelief is a pre-requisite, [this] is a rather gripping thriller...
It is an expertly crafted thriller with a mastery of tension-building techniques.
Audience Reviews for Tower Block
A low budget British thriller that is pretty tense and gripping, With some good performances from the cast especially Jack O' Connell, The story has been done before but the whole mystery to it kept it fresh, We all knew how it would end and when we found out who the killer was it wasn't a great surprise, A few gruesome scenes keep it entertaining, It's as good as it ever was going to be.
A decent premise is let down by a terrible script, dour colour scheme and some shockingly bad acting (even the usually fantastic Sheridan Smith is a little clunky). Think Attack The Block without the humour, pathos, technical skill and well chosen soundtrack.
A decent very low budget UK film, featuring a few well known faces to UK TV audiences. The story is very basic with a group of residents held captive in a Tower block by a sniper. It has a few neat touches and surprises but is rather too predictable and some of the acting isn't great. Catch it on TV if you fancy a change from the normal run of the mill stuff.
