Yeah, I thought so, maybe.

Everything is in too good of focus. From the leaves inches away to the buildings hundreds of feet away.

the destruction that one determined terrorist could bring to a 2000 ft tower is horrific to think about but seriously this thing could go down with like 15000+ people inside...
