The card becomes damaged when it is used to open his front door, and then causes mayhem at work when the main computer fails to identify Tony as the new employee. The high-tech building is run by computer, which interprets its programming as meaning; "destroy all threats". The BUILDING is out to get Tony. Written by Rob Hartill

Rise of the Tower - Fall of the Reiser
20 February 2010 | by Vomitron_GSee all my reviews

Well, I like this movie for only one reason: It has a computer in it that hates Paul Reiser and wants to kill him. And after you hear and see him composing some of his god-awful synthesizer music in his apartment during the opening scene with pathetic cinematography, you can only think "Please, shoot this guy... and make it quick". So there's this evil computer controlling an hi-tech giant miniature tower made out of plastic. Paul Reiser, the new employee, gets locked in during one night, together with his possible love-interest. Lots of running around, getting stuck in elevators and air-shafts and things blowing up (including a sauna). All pretty stupid, but mildly entertaining. The special FX's are fun but cheap. Basically this movie could be categorized as stupid nonsense, but since it was 'made for TV', I'll be very mild in my final rating. Why did I watch this nonsense a second time, you ask? I just like to see Paul Reiser suffer
