Tower Block

 (2012)

Tower Block Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

The last remaining residents of a run-down London tower block find themselves targeted by a deadly sniper, in this tense British thriller written by James Moran. When they witness the brutal murder of a youth in their block, Becky (Sheridan Smith) and the other remaining residents on the 12th floor keep quiet, fearing retribution. One year later, and with the police investigation stalled, they awake one morning to find all communications to the outside world cut. Panic quickly spreads through the group when they begin to be picked off by an unknown sniper with a high-tech rifle, who prevents anyone from escaping the building, and shoots anything that moves. As the situation becomes ever more desperate, the group join together to try and find a way out. But with booby traps at every exit, it soon becomes apparent that not everyone will make it out alive.

For more about Tower Block and the Tower Block Blu-ray release, see Tower Block Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Sheridan Smith (I), Jack O'Connell (IV), Ralph Brown, Russell Tovey, Jamie Thomas King
Directors: James Nunn, Ronnie Thompson

Tower Block Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Tower Block is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. This digitally shot feature has been intentionally desaturated, leaving the bulk of the film awash in slate grays and cool blues. This tends to give a somewhat bland look to much of this presentation, which remains clear and precise but never really "pops" in a traditional sense. In fact, perhaps ironically, the biggest "pop" comes from some of the early violence, when shots ring out and find their victims in relatively well lit locales. Once the survivors move to the hallways and bowels of the building, things become more and more bathed in darkness, with occasional moderate loss of shadow detail, especially in backgrounds. Contrast seems to have been intentionally dialed down at key points in order to make some of the proceedings even more shaded.


Tower Block Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Tower Block's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix is surprisingly immersive given the often claustrophobic confines of the film. The opening sequence is a case in point. The panicked footsteps of the pursued nicely echo through the sound field, and once the assault and battery are taking place we get very well placed discrete effects in the side channels as various inhabitants react to the carnage. Later, once the sniper starts the main rampage, there's some very nicely detailed blasts of sonic energy when the various shots ring out (along with some effective, if kind of gory, foley effects when the bullets hit their targets). Dialogue is very cleanly presented, and there's a nice air of the suffocating stillness that pervades some of the nooks and crannies of the building before mayhem strikes once again. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is very wide.
