The Tower (1993)

Before Tony (Paul Reiser) has even reached the Intercorp building for his first day of work he's screwed up his microchipped I.D. card. I'm not clear on what his job actually was, because he didn't seem to do anything except be a prick most of the day, but whatever it was he probably cocked it up, too.
It's sci-fi on a TV movie budget. The building is fully automated, overseen by a talking computer, which is movie-speak for 'humans must die' when the temperamental security protocols go into overdrive. If you're a sci-fi regular there's a very good chance you'll have seen it all before, done better.
