逃出生天 (Out of Inferno) (Blu-ray release 2013-12-19) is the latest firefighting disaster movie from Hong Kong.  The fire takes place in a high-rise building in China.  Although I understand melodrama is required for disaster movies, some subplots are too bad.  A minor character’s action involving stealing diamond, killing someone, and doing crazy things is out of place and incomprehensible.  The climax is also a nonsense.  Although I don’t think The Tower (2012) from Korea was perfect, it is a masterpiece compared to this.
