Let's just get this off our chests right now: Tower Heist is not a great movie.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
November 14, 2016
This action comedy's heart is in the right place, but its screenplay and direction are not.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

'Tower Heist' is a low-rent payback caper involving the staff of the titular high-rent tower. It's Donald Trump's Tower. Oddly, The Donald doesn't have a cameo.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

A crappy Hollywood blockbuster for the Occupy movement.

It is a heist movie that doesn't care about the heist.

The one-liners pop and the cast delivers.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 25, 2012
All corners of the oddball comedy genre are squarely covered in a way that somehow seems fresh despite the well tried-and-tested formula.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

What we end up with is a film that will have you laughing all the way through while at the same time reminding you that some talent never goes away, it just hibernates in smaller or inferior movies for awhile before that right project reaches them.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Tower Heist is too much fun too dislike. It may not be the smartest or even the funniest film of the year, but it does feature one very entertaining ensemble that makes for a great ride.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10
August 22, 2012
Feels more like a droll drama than an actual comedy, and it could have worked on those merits, but the stilted comedic asides rob the film of genuine weight.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/10
February 23, 2012
A funny, if farfetched, revenge fantasy for folks bilked by the likes of Bernie Madoff.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
February 22, 2012
Tower Heist succeeds because of Eddie Murphy's snarky performance, and fun turns from the rest of the cast. But the heist itself is a little dumb and the story is riddled with plot holes.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

The movie moves well, had plenty of bright spots and never bores, and by the time it was over I couldn't help but smile.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Occupy this: A feisty and funny heist movie with a nice turn by some guy named Eddie Murphy.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
December 29, 2011
It's the Occupy Movement ethos via a comedy crime caper.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 28, 2011
The movie is no fun, except when Murphy is around, which isn't nearly enough.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
December 26, 2011
Tower Heist is an entertaining crime comedy that features solid popcorn filmmaking from Brett Ratner and a big time cast having fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
December 21, 2011
One can't help but feel there must have been a little more meat on the bones of the script at some point.
December 17, 2011
A thoroughly entertaining heist movie with enough ballast to make it real, and also enough comedy to make it a great entertainment
December 17, 2011
Brilliantly executed with hilarious ideas and a first-class cast, Tower Heist is a sparkling and original caper
