Movie Review: Tower Heist

Attended the preview screening of action-comedy - Tower Heist (tickets provided by UIP Singapore and ) on Tuesday 1st November 2011 @ The Cathey.

Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy lead an all-star cast in Tower Heist, a comedy caper about working stiffs who seek revenge on the Wall Street swindler who stiffed them.  After the workers at a luxury Central Park condominium discover the penthouse billionaire has stolen their retirement, they plot the ultimate revenge: a heist to reclaim what he took from them.  

Queens native Josh Kovacs (Stiller) has managed one of the most luxurious and well-secured residences in New York City for more than a decade.  Under his watchful eye, nothing goes undetected.  In the swankiest unit atop Josh’s building, Wall Street titan Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda) is under house arrest after being caught stealing two billion from his investors.  The hardest hit among those he defrauded?  The tower staffers whose pensions he was entrusted to manage.  

With only days before Arthur gets away with the perfect crime, Josh’s crew turns to petty crook Slide (Murphy) to plan the nearly impossible…to steal what they are sure is hidden in Arthur’s guarded condo.  Though amateurs, these rookie thieves know the building better than anyone.  Turns out they’ve been casing the place for years, they just didn’t know it.

When I enter the cinema, I didnt have high expectation on the movie, I've only watched one of the trailer on Youtube (the above one).. and I knew I shouldn't think too much on the plots or anythings... just sit back and relax. 

It's a comedy and the casts (Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy and Matthew Broderick) just spell "FUNNY" in all way!! ^.~

I really enjoy Eddie Murphy comedic acting/action...
Ben Stiller weird sense of humour and
Matthew Broderick "blur expression" kinda of acting. (Remember him in The Stepford Wives, Inspector Gadget(one of my fave) Election, Godzilla(fave), Addicted to Love(fave), The Cable Guy, Ferris Bueller's Day Off  (fave) and ects.. all have that cute and funny "blur expression")

The chemistry between the casts were really good, especially Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller(I would love to see them acting together again in future projects)... they doesn't feel/look odd or let you think that they are just "acting".  

The whole movie feel like a simple and funnier version of Leverage and Ocean's eleven... it's totally fun to see!! 

But I do felt that some of the plots seem kinda impossible in real life... 
For examples:: How come the elevator can support the weight of a solid gold car?? Or the cable from the swing-stage scaffolds doesn't break off from that heavy soild gold car?? Well... it's a funny movie, I bet if they fell off from thirty floors they will survive too(lolx)

Anyway, this was an entertaining movie, I really enjoyed it.. it's funny, interesting[though not really that original- but still interesting enough (like I never get sick of "Cinderella" type of plot)] and abit of suspension.

My fave scene would be the Silky Terrier part... lolx... cuteness max! <3

My Rating: 8/10
