An low production of The Tower.
This movie came out a few months after Korea's "The Tower", which also involves a high rise fire, and the fire department coming to the rescue, however, that movie was big budget, had top billed actors, and top of the line effects. Both movies use CG fire, but "The Tower" used real fire too, for in "Out of Inferno", it's all computer generated, something out of a Sci-fi Original movie, it looks tacky and fake, very unconvincing and cheap. The building itself looks like a generic office building, not the larger than life Tower Sky from the Korean movie, you were convince it was a real twin tower, although it was computer generated, for "Out of Inferno" it seems they selected a ordinary building in Hong Kong or Guangzhou, not nearly as impressive or awe inspiring. On a lighter note, at least the acting is good, everyone delivers good lines and performances, so you wanted them to survive, this movie also takes influence from "Backdraft", with two estranged brother firemen, that lost their father to a fire, told in flashback, it would have been better if this was the intro. Overall, it's better to watch "The Tower", it's intense and over the top, it has great effects and good performances, but if you want a less intense firefighting movie from Asia, "Out of Inferno" is a standard action movie.
