Even at its best, The Tower is beholden to unearned emotional payoffs.

Kim Ji-hoon overdoses on visual fireworks in a way that smothers any human drama mustered by the sprawling cast, whose marquee names are treated as mere icing on the cake.

"The Tower" may be skillfully executed as an effects-laden opus, but its miniature portraits in courage are ultimately too jerry-built to feel like anything but filler between the combustive set pieces.

There are exploitation films and then some, but this Korean twin-tower disaster epic takes the cake for callously evocative imagery and sentimental schlock.

Don't look for character development or deep meaning, but THE TOWER is a real roller-coaster ride.
