Synopsis


The Tower
The manager of an ultramodern high rise teams with a veteran fire chief to battle a blaze that threatens to destroy the building on Christmas Eve, just as the tenants and VIP guests assemble for a lavish holiday party in this tense disaster film from Korea. As night falls on Christmas Eve, Tower Sky superintendent Dae-ho (Kim Sang-kyung) recruits food mall manager Yoon-hee (Son Ye-jin) to care for his daughter Hana (Cho Mina) while he makes preparations for the annual "White Chistmas" celebration. A distracted single father, Dae-ho has never noticed the Yoon-hee's longing glances, though she's never given up hope that one day he'll come around. As the festivities get under way, Yoido Station fire chief Young-ki (Sul Kyung-gu) prepares to party the night away with his wife, who's spent untold nights fretting over the fate of her brave husband. Meanwhile, as the fake snow begins to fall courtesy of helicopters hovering overhead, a sudden inferno turns the luxury skyscraper into a fiery death trap. With no time to lose as the situation grows dire, Dae-ho and Young-ki race to save as many lives as possible before the entire tower is consumed by flames. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Awesome Korean film

    The story is really good, the ambition of the owner caused a disaster... A father trying to save his little daughter, the firefighters doing everything to rescue the victims... It's a fascinating movie! The actors are brilliant, the little girl and his father, the workers of the Tower, the firefighters, and all the supporting cast did a great job. The visual effects are awesome, it will give you chills. Definitely recommended to watch with the family and friends.

    I always expect little from Korean movies but The Tower surprised me and added itself to my most favourite movies so far......the language barrier can often be a problem in most foreign movies by distracting you from the scene but the actors and actress's in this movie provided brilliant acting skills that

    If you didn't check it out in theatres then pick up the dvd. The Tower is a disaster film about the destruction of a building complex called Tower Sky in Korea. The film has emotional backstories of numerous characters and neat visuals. Pick up a copy and support Korean cinema.

    I had never even heard of this movie until it became available at the local Redbox. I watched it once and loved it. Jaw-dropping action, spectacular special effects, great acting!
