The Reviews for Skyscraper (2018) 720p

The Rock is Awesome, but this Movie is MediocreReviewed byJared_AndrewsVote: 4/10

Since no human adversary is any match for The Rock, as he has shown us in past movies, he must now take on non-human adversaries. This time, he's taking on a building. But not just any building. He's taking on a skyscraper-the most formidable and the most phallic of all buildings.

If it sounds ridiculous, that's because it is. The story is largely ridiculous, and although The Rock never actually fights the building (because it's a building), the danger that the building poses is a much greater threat than any posed by the actual villains of this film.

The villains are lame, cardboard cutout characters. They're evil because they're evil-no explanation given, no effort. So, I consider the skyscraper the main adversary in this film since its sheer height and the raging fire it contains threatens The Rock's family. I won't mention The Rock's character's name because I never once thought of him as anyone other than The Rock. The only thing here distinguishing him from the characters he plays in other movies, is his love for duct tape. This is a very pro-duct tape movie.

In this movie, The Rock is awesome because The Rock is always awesome. Speaking of awesome, I have to give it up for Neve Campbell. I should have known from the many times I watched the 'Scream' movies, but Neve Campbell is one tough cookie. She takes down her share of bad guys along the way, fearlessly and intelligently defending her kids. Well done.

Rooting for The Rock (and any of his friends or family) is one of my favorite things to do at the movies. It's amazing that The Rock has been so built up in the minds of viewers as an indestructible force that writers now have to manufacture weaknesses for him in movies, such as an artificial leg. It's as if the audience would believe all the challenges of this movie would be too easy for him if he had both his natural legs.

While there are a million and one plot holes, that's definitely not something you're supposed to look for in this movie. Certain movies are not meant to be dissected, and one involving a man jumping from one tall structure across the sky into a much taller structure that's on fire, is certainly one of them.

In addition to the film's inherent silliness, it also attempted several awkward jokes within the first few minutes, all of which whiffed. Characters followed up with "I'm kidding." That's usually a reliable indicator that the joke bombed terribly.

Despite all the flaws, I still had a good time watching this. The Rock is charismatic enough to carry any action movie to a reasonable level of watchability. Thanks to him, this one is reasonably watchable.

Terrible, absolute waste of time and talent...Reviewed bywritekelvinVote: 1/10

I regret even accepting the free ticket promo for this movie and going for it. Saw it on opening day. And it was so terrible that I had to write this review. There is no defense for movies that are terrible because it means that other better movies don't get funded and don't get made because shit movies like this gets made by hack writers and hack directors, just like this Marshall Thurber. At least Central Intelligence had humor and a somewhat original plot. This terrible rip-off of Die Hard has none of the suspense and tension that made Die Hard such a thrilling movie.

It's ridiculous to write a character with a leg handicap in this movie and yet never factor this important thing into the actual story in a realistic way. There are absolutely no real stakes in this movie. You never doubt that the Rock or his family will survive this whole ordeal. There is never a doubt and therefore never a feeling of suspense. It's one gigantic orgy of computer generated CGI-effects for 80% of the movie. It feels fake because it IS fake.

There is never a sense of danger, a sense of threat, a sense of suspense, a sense of tension. NO, it's just a bloody waste of time just watching Johnson's character go from point to point, doing CGI stunt to stunt, never actually risking life or limb. In the movie, his character climbs the crane that is next to the skyscraper and we are to believe that it is the tallest tower in the world... just think about that! A character with a leg handicap climbs a crane that is so tall in less than 15 minutes! WTF?!?! Like, seriously... WTF?!!

As charming as Dwayne Johnson is as a person and actor, he is no Tom Cruise. If you watch any of the Mission Impossible films, you know it's Tom Cruise risking his life. Watch Mission Impossible 4, and you know that Tom Cruise is hanging off from the highest building in Dubai. Now, that's a real life skyscraper that was used, and Tom Cruise was hanging off of that. That scene had more tension than this whole entire movie!

You are better off watching that film or the original Die Hard, both of which had better plot-twists and strong characters where the action is felt because it involved real characters with real-world stakes. This trash is so fake that it doesn't even raise the pulse when you are watching whatever happen on screen because mentally you know it's completely computer graphics imagery (CGI).

I have decided I will only watch Dwayne Johnson in movies where he is a supporting character, meaning that he has a team or he is paired with someone else. Watching him as the main character is a waste of time because you never feel the threat to his character. If it's a comedy film, it's fine. But for an action movie, this becomes tedious and boring to sit through because it's no different than watching Transformers or Pacific Rim where it's all CGI action. Yawn.

Jumanji was great because there were other characters, besides the Rock, and the same goes for the Fast and Furious franchise. When the Rock is with other characters, then it's fun. When he is the main solo character, it gets boring very quickly because he is basically indestructible. There was a reason why the 80s Action Films stayed in the 80s and they died off then. There is a reason why action films transitioned into the 90s and 00s very differently. There is a reason why Casino Royale rebooted James Bond in a very different and gritty way where there were stakes involved where the character could hurt, and bleed, and lose. Never happens here. Not for a second. Thus, Skyscraper becomes no different than 2 hours of watching someone play a video game.

I am so glad this film is doing terrible at the box office. It goes to show that audiences don't resonate with this in cinemas either. Don't get me wrong, I like Dwayne Johnson in certain movies but this was such a completely ridiculous premise that the film just goes on auto-pilot and you know how it's all going to turn out. There is never the suspense and thrill that you get from a better script and better director. Defending this sort of garbage as a popcorn flick is not even possible because it is shit. Even Rampage was better than this. Do yourself a favour and save your money. Rewatch the original Die Hard or ANY of the Mission Impossible films (3, 4, 5) and the upcoming 6. They all have real stunts, better stories and characters, etc. Money should be spent to support better quality, than on junk that has no redeeming value or quality.

HomageReviewed bypottifarVote: 6/10

Sure it has plot holes and he is inhuman, but if you take it for what it is and for what the Rock wanted with this movie you get a classic old school action. He wanted to make a homage to the 80s and 90s action movies, die hard etc. And that is what you get.
