Movie Review: Tower Heist

29 Nov 2011

More sound than substance, this action-comedy with Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller often disappoints

Starring: Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller

I’d been waiting for about six months for this to finally come out. The chance of having two of the biggest names in comedy meant this was going to be big... Unfortunately for me it wasn’t.

The return of the legendary Eddie Murphy teaming up with equally cool Ben Stiller didn’t live up to expectations. The story is about a group of guys who find themselves taken advantage of financially by a wealthy old man. They decide to get revenge by breaking into his multimillion dollar tower. If only we all could seek some revenge on our bosses!

Somewhat of an action-comedy, but you really need to look hard for the comedy. Wait for the DVD.
