Well, I was not expecting a Cannes Film Festival breakout, or Academy Award contender. To all those reviews that say the movie is cliched, predictable, just another Die Hard knock off... WTF were you expecting!?This movie delivered on the action, and the skyscraper was very, very cool!Yes the acting was not deep, but it was not bad either...The Rock looks great whatever he does, I mean come on people, Arnold and Stallone were not Shakespearean actors either!! I have seen literally hundreds of " Mediocre" action flicks, and this one ranks a point or two higher IMO. If you want to kick back and watch a mostly mindless, ridiculous, silly, and fun action movie, then you will enjoy this one.

Pure crap, not watchable, same crap as rampage, i dont understand why the rock has to star in such movies, its better to wait for a better role with a normal storyline
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.
