I liked Tower Block but it left me with a few niggling thoughts. Successfully it mines Jon Carpenter territory for its look and atmosphere and the performances (aside from a Scottish copper who over-earnestly hams with intent) are uniformly convincing. The score is also terrific: A simple sombre theme that feels as bleak as its setting. However, the final payoff is flat, deserving a better climax considering the taut and entertaining build-up,

Get through the first 15 odd minutes of Eastenders style social commentary drivel and you might be pleasantly surprised if you watch this. Jack O' Connell is the real standout in the cast - a throughly dislikeable moronic thug who - thanks to an excellent script and powerhouse delivery - you ACTUALLY find yourself rooting for toward the end. The violence is short , sharp and electric which actually works in the film's favour as you're never quite sure who's going to cop it next. I'd probably watch more Ken Loach movies if they were more like this. THREE STARS
