One of the better 70s disaster movies with the trademark ensemble cast of heavyweights and has-beens. Like The Poseidon Adventure, it's entertainingly daft if taken with a liberal dose of salt, and it's worth it just to watch Newman and McQueen trying to out-alpha male each other.

Who knew a movie about a burning building could be so interesting?

Good old Irwin Allen - father of the disaster film (for better or worse). Sure, this is cheesy, but it's also pretty fun - like all disaster movies should be.

I really like Faye Dunaway so I saw this one. It's okay but never really does anything that I haven't seen before.

Disaster movie with great cast but poor script

I really did not much care for this film, I really find it annoying that this cast could not have been in a better film. It is a standard disaster movie just more fire more explosions and people trying to survive in different situations. The outside characters have little to say that is interesting in depth and when important characters die they die in strange ways that I almost missed them dying since it was nonchalant. It looks dated very pure seventies, and is interesting to see Paul Newman and Steve McQueen together but that is not enough. If you like these movies you might like I don't.

Oscar nomination Fred Astaire 3/5 Best Supporting actor- Fred Astaire is good in this. One of the few characters you really get to know at along with Jennifer Jones. He does rise above the materia...
