Good disaster flick

on 5/30/2012

While containining many 70s diaster movie cliches, this one manages to provide certain realistic portrayals. Paul Newman and Steve Mcqueen is one killer duo, and their scenes together are a real treat. This movie has aged well because it doesn't really on lots of visual effects. Read More

Plot Summary
Summary One hundred and thirty stories of glass and steel pierce the landscape, a monument to architectural know-how and the power of money. But the builders have taken some cash-saving shortcuts, and it takes just one spark from an electric current to set off a disaster.| During a celebratory party full of wealthy movers and shakers, the tower bursts into flames, and chaos erupts as the raging force of nature envelopes the structure. A courageous fire captain on the outside and the desperate architect trapped inside struggle to save the guests from the fire created by their greedy manipulations.
