Critic Reviews of "The Towering Inferno"Chicago ReaderFebruary 03, 2012
Irwin Allen, the Busby Berkeley of natural disasters and other people's troubles, teams up with John Guillermin, a competent if undistinguished action director.VarietySeptember 22, 2008
The Towering Inferno is one of the greatest disaster pictures made, a personal and professional triumph for producer Irwin Allen.Time OutJune 24, 2006
A starry cast share out roles that are less like characters than places in a lifeboat.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
You may not come out of the theater with any important ideas about American architecture or enterprise, but you will have had a vivid, completely safe nightmare.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
The Towering Inferno is a brawny blockbuster of a movie, by far the best of the mid-1970s wave of disaster films.Antagony & EcstasySeptember 11, 2014
Despite the best efforts of most of those involved, the film never takes off as more than just a remarkable collection of glossy violence.TV GuideFebruary 03, 2012
The result is everything a disaster movie should be, a combination of soap opera and the spectacle of destruction.Film4February 03, 2012
Ironically, there's now something almost comforting about the way the film sticks to formula, but the action is still authentically thrilling.EmanuelLevy.ComMarch 30, 2011
Featuring an all-star cast (Paul Newman, Steve McQueen), the movie delivers the goods of a well-crafted disaster flick, but strangely, it was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar.Groucho ReviewsJuly 28, 2009
A Titanic tale of hubris...knot-in-the-stomach scary from the moment the fire gets out of control to the last-ditch heroics that come hours later. [Blu-ray]Filmcritic.comMay 13, 2009
break out the popcorn, sit back, and enjoy a galaxy of stars picking up their fat paychecks and having a great time. They absolutely don't make 'em like this anymore
