Movie Reviews: ‘Skyscraper

Movie Review: Observer

Skyscraper

Skyscraper is a return to and attempt to improve the concept, which reached its pinnacle in the mid-1990s when Willis, Stallone and even Van Damme were still marketable properties. This time, they’re putting a really big guy in a really big building. There he commits various acts of derring-do that defy basic physics while the audience oohs, ahhs and politely claps as if he were competing in a high-stakes and vertiginous episode of American Ninja Warrior. This is worldwide summer entertainment at its most cynical and bombastic, all of it sold by a stalwart Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson using the over-aggressive earnestness of a late-night TV pitchman.

And guess what? As an amped-up, brains-free nostalgia piece, the film largely works. While the story it tells gets no points for originality (this is essentially Die Hard, only the family is in the building with him), the film tweaks the tropes it depends on just enough to keep you engaged.

Movie Review: Boston Globe

Skyscraper

A lot of people who read movie reviews think that two stars (out of four) means the kiss of death. It doesn’t. Usually, it just means the movie is average. Most movies are, in fact, average. That’s what “average” means.

From its generic concrete noun of a title on down, “Skyscraper” is exactly average for its genre, said genre being the Common-Man Hero Takes Back a Building [or Other Complex Place/Situation] From Evildoers action extravaganza pioneered by “Die Hard,” in 1988. “Skyscraper” wants to be “Die Hard” very badly, only with more muscles on its hero and more floors on its building. And as a streaming option on a slow night or a long flight, the movie has its uses. But you’ve seen almost all of this before, with more wit and a better villain.

Movie Review: Detroit News

Skyscraper

Dwayne Johnson falls hard in “Skyscraper,” a ho-hum homage to the original “Die Hard” that hits the ground with a resounding splat.

In it, Johnson stars as Will Sawyer, about as boring a name as you can slap on a guy with the bulging build of the Rock. Truth be told, his vanilla name fits his character, who is as boring a guy as Johnson has ever played on screen.

Will, having lost his left leg in a hostage negotiation gone bad (he was an FBI agent), is now a security consultant working on the world’s tallest building, a Hong Kong high-rise known as “The Pearl,” which is triple the height of the Empire State Building.
