Brief Synopsis – A SWAT team must infiltrate a 15 story apartment building and capture a wanted criminal whose base is located on the top floor.
My Take on it – I am generally not the biggest fan of all-out action movies, but here I found an interesting one.
I tend to prefer movies that make you think a bit and also give you an interesting story to follow.
This movie has the slimmest of plots and was solely made to see how much action, violence, mayhem and death an average moviegoer can withstand.
This is basically a film with two warring sides moving towards each other for a major confrontation. The twist here is that unlike in a real battle where warring sides move closer to each other horizontally, this movie does so in a vertical manner which is a very interesting thing to have done.
There are a few minor sub-plots thrown in along the way, but ultimately, this movie is about violence and it doesn’t need much of a plot to move it along.
For those of you seeking an all-out action movie done well, you have found it. For those looking for a movie with a compelling storyline should probably look elsewhere
Bottom Line – Very good all out action movie. Lack of much of a plot is a drawback, but knowing that going in cant help with the enjoyment of the action. Recommended!
Rating – Globe Worthy

I actually think the lack of plot is a good thing in this film. When they tried to introduce story elements it slowed the whole thing down
I agree, but I tend to like a movie following a plot and not be a video-game shoot-em-up.
Regardless, I did enjoy this one
Thanks for stopping by and commenting Mikey
Fantastic film. There is a lack of plot but I don’t think it matters a massive amount. Can’t wait for the new one!
