The Tower

The Tower ★★½

There’s a skyscraper, it’s not really built to code, there’s an accident, there’s a fire, you know how the story goes from there.

I don’t have anything bad to say here. I’m just not into disaster movies. This one is fine. The effects are really good for a nine million dollar budget. There’s a wide array of characters who are mostly tropes but the sympathetic ones are sympathetic enough. It’s reasonably tense. 

The ending achieves some real poignancy. I kind of wonder where that was for the rest of the movie. It also hit some 9/11 beats, which was culturally interesting.
