The Towering Inferno Reviews

January 15, 2013
The movie doesn't stick together in one's head; this thing is like some junky fairground show -- a chamber of horrors with skeletons that jump up.
February 3, 2012
Irwin Allen, the Busby Berkeley of natural disasters and other people's troubles, teams up with John Guillermin, a competent if undistinguished action director.

The Towering Inferno is one of the greatest disaster pictures made, a personal and professional triumph for producer Irwin Allen.

A starry cast share out roles that are less like characters than places in a lifeboat.

You may not come out of the theater with any important ideas about American architecture or enterprise, but you will have had a vivid, completely safe nightmare.

The Towering Inferno is a brawny blockbuster of a movie, by far the best of the mid-1970s wave of disaster films.
