    Tower Heist Review

    I’ve seen great caper movies, and this isn’t one of them. As mainstream Hollywood studio movies go, Tower Heist isn’t bad, and it will probably fulfill most audience’s desire for escapist fare. But despite some good laughs here and there and a couple of neat plot twists, it&r...

    Review: 'J. Edgar' Presents A Highly Controversial Figure With Dry Objectivity & Dramatic Inertia
