Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Kim Ji-hoon overdoses on visual fireworks in a way that smothers any human drama mustered by the sprawling cast, whose marquee names are treated as mere icing on the cake."
‑ Maggie Lee, Variety
"Don't look for character development or deep meaning, but THE TOWER is a real roller-coaster ride."

"There are exploitation films and then some, but this Korean twin-tower disaster epic takes the cake for callously evocative imagery and sentimental schlock."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Even at its best, The Tower is beholden to unearned emotional payoffs."
‑ Michael Nordine, Village Voice
