Well, if you are a fan of The Rock this is a decent enough high octane action, disaster and special effects movie. If not, well then you probably have to be a pretty big fan of special effects and action to overlook its weak points.
Let’s start with the good stuff. One, it is The Rock (yes I am a fan) although he certainly doesn’t come out at his best in this movie. Personally I could do without the artificial leg crap but it didn’t bother me too much in the end. It didn’t really add anything except some silly (and unrealistic scenes) though.
Then we have the action and the special effects. They were as good as you would expect from a multi million dollar action movie. At least I enjoyed them. I really liked the design of the Skyscraper. I thought it was booth cool and beautiful. I kind of would like to see it built in real life.
Was the movie derivative? Well of course it can be said to be derivative! How many movies with burning Skyscrapers and bad guys hi-jacking them can you make before it becomes derivative after all? The first movie named Skyscraper was made in 1928 for Christ sake. It didn’t bother me at all.
Now for the not so good. The movie was hugely predictable. I mean, you could tell who the bad guys were from the first scene they were in. Especially the rat faced jerk Mr Pierce. The main bad guy? Well, he was no Hans Gruber that’s for sure. More like a common thug. The movie really lacked a bad guy with some charisma. Overall, most of the movie from start to finish was really a no-surprise-there event from the first bad guy entering the scene to the rebooting of the systems.
Then we have the realism factor. I do not expect an action and special effects movie to be realistic but there are some limits. Sawyer climbing around on the outside of the building (with one leg remember) in the updraft from 50 or so burning levels was just nonsense. Also, a building burning that much and that long and yet all the electrical wiring and plumbing still working was a bit too much. The absolutely worst offence though was how everyone magically survived sitting in the middle of the fire being extinguished by the release of halon gas (or some equivalent). That just brings stupidity (or maybe laziness) in script writing to a whole new level.
So, to sum it up, this move could have been a lot better. To me it was saved by The Rock and my love of special effects loaded action movies.
_Die Hard in a (X)_ is a pretty classic movie formula, it doesn’t get as much play now as it did in the 80s and 90s, but we can still reliably expect at **least** one every couple of years, even now. But when it’s _Die Hard in a Skyscraper_… I mean… That’s just _Die Hard_. Even _Die Hard 2_ had the sensibility to be _Die Hard in an Airport_.
Except that, no, this isn’t just _Die Hard_, because (and I don’t think anyone would be shocked to find this) it’s not as good. I mean I love The Rock and all, but come on.
Final rating:★★ – Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product.
It’s pretty much what you expect it to be
Pretty much all action movies are the same. This is pretty much the same movie as Rampage (which also had Dwayne Johnson in it) and that only came out a couple of months ago. Is this a good movie? Not really, but it’s fairly entertaining. It’s exactly what you expect to be. High-octane, action-packed, funny and actually pretty enjoyable for the most part. I wouldn’t go out of your to see it, but you won’t be disappointed either, as long as you check your expectations first. It’s not art, but it’s not trash either.
I Was Entertained
My mother and I went to see this. Her palms were sweating. We saw in 3D and she’s scared of heights. Heights don’t bother me that much but I can see my stomach clenching hanging from the high in the air.
Skyscraper is what people call The Towering Inferno meets Die Hard starring The Rock. The film starts off with a quick scene where The Rock is in some special forces group with his buddy, and then they they get blown up. We see Rock in the hospital and he had lost his leg. However, he meets with his future wife, Ms Scream herself, Neve Campbell (good she’s still working these days).
Flash forward and the two are married and have two kids together. The Rock sees them off (“Daddy loves who?”) and then meets with his buddy. They meet with the head of that building, and then we learn that his buddy is betraying him over a tablet that takes control of the building. The Rock is too smart, so his buddy tries to kill him but remembers that the movie would be over if he kills The Rock.
Naturally, Rock wins but terrorists have taken over the building, set it on fire, and his family is trapped in it. However, Hong Kong police are chasing after him so The Rock races against the cops, time, and those terrorists to get his family back.
First its the scene from the trailers where he jumps to the building on a crane. This is high level action right here. I can see why they are proud of this because it was a very suspenseful, energetic action scene. The movie never lets up until the very end and because I was never bored and expecting Shakespeare, I walked away thinking the film is awesome.
Is this movie better than Die Hard and Towering Inferno. Oh heck no. Those movies are classics for a reason. However, this is an entertaining action film and that’s what I expect out of the summer.
