Goofs

When entering the lift shaft, considering they are on the top floor that would mean the lift car is either on the same floor or below them. The car is below and no steel cables visible connecting the car to the lift motor room which would be at roof level in this type of tower block. See more »

There are issues but overall it's a good film
26 September 2012 | by DanOS1994See all my reviews

'Tower Block' is a good thriller. Its got an original premise, a good cast but the whole motive for the sniper is a bit much, I wont spoil it but it just wasn't believable. The film also had a few continuity issues, not extremely major but very obvious. The film will also probably only appeal to a British audience due to it's setting, characters and dialogue.

Overall 'Tower Block' is an average thriller but it's still enjoyable due to it's interesting and original premise and the fairly good acting. So despite the issues and I'd still give it a go as I'd doubt you will be disappointed.
