By Tommy Dooley HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Sept. 15 2013
Format: DVD
This is an independent Brit thriller and it is actually rather good. The plot is we have a crime infested tower block in what looks like a sink hole in London; it is the sort of place where everything smells of urine and the lifts about as reliable as an African dictatorships human rights record. Then one night a teenager is dragged down the hallways to be kicked to death. When the police try to investigate no-one has seen or heard a thing.

The council have decided to knock it down and let developers move in, but the residents on the top floor are yet to be re-housed. They are a dysfunctional lot with Kurtis (Jack O'Connell - `Skins') running a sort of protection racket. Then one morning as they awaken to a new day, a sniper starts to kill the residents and he means to take absolutely no prisoners. The surviving people realise they are going to have to come together to survive, the question is how?

This also stars Sheridan Smith as Becky (`Gavin and Stacey') and she is actually both good as a character and has a good screen presence. We also have Paul the alcoholic, nice guy Russell Tovey (`Him and Her') who gets the role down to pat. This is a small budget but it does not always show, as the block is run down anyway and most of the action takes place in the confines of the building. There is genuine tension and I was hooked from early on.

I thought this was going to be a siege type film along the lines of `Assault on precinct 13' or something like that, but this is actually darker as they just do not know why they are being targeted. Directors James Nunn and Ronnie Thompson have crafted a really well made film that will hopefully get a lot more attention than it has so far received and is something they should be proud of.

Great little suspense thriller Aug. 3 2013

I saw this when it showed at Fantastic Fest in 2012, and it's a great, simple, and unique thriller. If you're in the mood to watch terrible things happen to varying levels of terrible people, this is the movie for you!

Kept you on the edge of your seat wondering who was responsible. May 16 2014
By Kathy Elliott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Was a mystery to try and figure out who the "bad" guy was who was responsible for a lot of pain and death. Not for the faint of heart. Twist at the end which I didn't see coming. Enjoyed the film. It is English, so dialogue can be difficult at times.
A solid thriller.. May 6 2014

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A well acted, suspenseful film about a group of apartment dwellers under seige by an unknown sniper. Unknown that is until the end. An outstanding performance by Jack O'Connell.

I had a bit of trouble understanding some of the dialog due to the heavy accents. Unfortunatly, the DVD was missing the subtitle option which would have helped.

Very good film overall.
Good suspense thriller, but a lot of plot holes Sept. 10 2013
By M. Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It takes about 15 minutes for this thing to get going, but once the sniper started picking off people through their living room windows, i was hooked. Taken on that level, this is a good movie. But once the identity of the sniper is revealed, i started asking a lot of questions and there aren't any answers that make sense. It would almost have been better if they had never told us the identity of the bad guy, and had him disappear into the night. If you can get past that, you'll like this movie.
Brilliant! July 31 2013

I live in the uk, so I can fully understand what they are saying. I don't normally like British films which is ironic seen as though I am British. I read a review by Richard P. Thorne on here he said he couldn't understand the accent but that's what people who live in council estate talk like in the uk and he said the region 1 copy of the DVD doesn't have subtitles but if you get the uk DVD copy of it (region 2) then you get subtitles and a behind the scene featurette. I most say tower block is the best British film I have ever seen. I would defintly recommended this film.
