Tower Heist a success, but not a steal

Could you successfully steal 40 million dollars?

The hilarious movie “Tower Heist” shows the story of hotel employees who try to steal their money back from a multi millionaire after he scammed them of all their money. Their funny escapade leads to many laughs, and suspense.

“Tower Heist” is the story of employees who are working at one of the fanciest and nicest hotels around, and their quest to find and take back their money from a multi millionaire stock broker (Alan Alda) who had offered to help increase the employee’s earnings. However it backfires and the employees have their savings stolen, and are left with nothing. The employees (Ben Stiller, Casey Affleck, Matthew Broderick, Michael Peña, Gabourey Sidibe) decide to steal the money back with the help of a thief (Eddie Murphy).

I did enjoy the movie. Their humor was good, and not too crude or childish. There was a good mix of humor, and suspense making the movie even more enjoyable. I believe that they choose the right actors for this movie. All of them were good with their parts causing the move to be better, and somewhat relatable. We all fear having our money stolen, but this movie takes it to a whole new level.

However there were some things in the moving that were not so good. Some of the things they did in the movie weren’t realistic, like ramming an FBI agent with a cart and it knocking them out. That is not realistic. That would not knock someone out, not to mention the assault charges. There are also some other moments where the movie stops being realistic.

Other than those instances the movie is good.

Overall I did like the movie, and put those few unrealistic moments aside it was a good movie.
