'Tower Block'

Good reviews, and the footage hints at a movie with a backbone. The Brits know what they're doing with this kind of flick. They get the violence just right -- a mix of cinematic posturing and gritty realism.

Hollywood movies usually feature violence that's either too comic-bookish and over-the-top to be taken seriously -- though these movies can make a lot at the box office -- or too realistic, too much of a downer for commercial success.

This trailer has just the right feel.

Opens September 21 in the UK. Could be a good rental.
