Tower Heist is far-fetched, ridiculous and entirely implausible... and it's heaps fun! Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Matthew Broderick and Casey Affleck headline a strong cast and Brett Ratner again proves to be an accomplished comedy-action director. The story is simple; a group of people fall victim to a billionaire's fraudulent ponzi scheme and plot a revenge heist to rob him of millions. Completely inexperienced they enlist the help of a street thief (Murphy) to hatch a plan which involves evading FBI agents, a hi-tech security system and a hidden safe. It's stupid stuff but the movie is well aware of it's own absurdity. It plays out like Oceans 11 meets The Pink Panther and the laughs are plenty. If you go into this with low expectations than you are sure to come away from it well amused and entertained. The highlight for me was Eddie Murphy's performance. This is a real return to form as he channels his 20 year old self from movies like 48 Hours and Beverly Hills Cop. He is on fire and delivers easily his best performance in a very long time. My fingers are crossed that it's a resurrection of his adult-career. Director Brett Ratner has been attached to the on-and-off production of Beverly Hills Cop 4 and if Tower Heist serves as a warm up, I am confident he can serve up the goods. This is heaps fun.
