Product Description

Amazon.ca

Disaster movies used to work because there was little certainty as to who would survive. Not so in this film, really an amalgam of two original stories, about a group of well-to-do celebrants at the top floor of a skyscraper. Cheapo electrical wiring and bad construction management cause an enormous blaze at the lower floors, steadily rising to consume the revelers. Newman's an architect, McQueen a firefighter, and Fred Astaire a kind old gentleman, for which he was Oscar-nominated. O.J. Simpson plays a security guard who rescues a cat. Now that's a disaster. --Keith Simanton

3.0 out of 5 stars It's Irwin Allen April 5 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Acting is hammy by Newman. Commentary okay, but not a lot of insight into the film. More the commentators opinions on why things are the way they are, not really any behind the scenes gems. Even the roof top helicopter scene the commentator remarks in the vein of ( Well i know that happened, but I don't know why it happened) Didn't need the parts where he tells what you are seeing on the screen. At least the commentary filled the whole film, not just a here or there comment like so many others. 2nd disk loaded with features. Could have been a bit more concise. In a lot of cases I was suffering from deja vu. A lot of repetitive scenes in different features. Also comes with a booklet with commentaries and photos. Generally fast moving although some scenes seemed to drag on forever, particularly the stairwell scene with Newman, Jones and the two kids. Considering the technology of the day the effects were outstanding. And lastly. Couldn't beat the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Burn Baby Burn Jan. 17 2014

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Classic Disaster movie from the 70's with two of the biggest stars of that time with MCQueen and Newman .

Steve MCQueen owns the movie as the cool fire chief as everything is burning around him.

Delivered quickly and as expected.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Towering Inferno Oct. 17 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The plot I found a bit contrived ;
for instance the scene in which the
fire started
As for the rest, it rates no better than
the any of the movies in its genre
Paul Newman and Steve McQueen were
great in their roles

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the cream of the crop. Sept. 2 2013
Format:Blu-ray
As far as disaster movies of the 70's this one edges out the original Airport as the best of the bunch. Believable characters and just the right balance of story and action. The best compliment I can give it is at 2hrs 44 minutes it left me wanting more...That's where this blu-ray comes in! No only do you get crystal clear picture and sound that take me back to the cinema when I was a kid, but there are about 45 minutes of extended/deleted scenes. It's the same thrill I got when I saw it for the first time. If you are a fan of the 70's disaster genre (like me) don't be afraid to part with your 2 DVD special Edition. All the extras you'll need are here. Great bang for the buck, and a nice trip back to the 70's at it's catastrophic finest!
