Movie Review: Tower Heist (2011)

The premise of a group of disgruntled hotel employees robbing a corrupt investor of $20 million in cash doesn’t immediately bring to mind the workings of a laugh-out-loud comedy, yet Tower Heist provides just that.

In animation, computer generated imagery generates the two perspectives and they are linked in differing depths after production.
