I saw the "Skyscraper" trailer during the Super Bowl and the sight of a one-legged Rock dangling from the side of a building - by his fake leg - had me in disbelief.
Who would make such a picture? Who would finance such a picture?
Then you see the location and the star involved and you know this is mainly for the Chinese market. No shame in that. "Skyscraper" is bad in all the good ways. It follows EVERY SINGLE action trope possible, except for one (Johnson's character has sworn off guns). You'll guess every motivation and every betrayal within the first 20 minutes, but then a funny thing happens.
They ditch all pretense and narrative chicanery. They lay it all out for you and then let The Rock loose on the towering inferno.
It's funny how perspective will change what you're watching. "Skyscraper" is a throw back mid 80's - early 90's action flick. If I consider the countless movies the Willis', the Schwarzeneggers, the Stallones and the Van Damnes of the world have made as classics...then how can I REALLY hate this movie?
Once I reached that realization I began to enjoy it for what it was. A terrible movie featuring the biggest, baddest man in cinema being big and bad.
There's a bunch of better stuff out there, but I wouldn't exactly call "Skyscraper" a waste of money.

Day 75, Movie 112: The Rock
My wife did not really grow up watching movies. If you can think of a popular film, that you assume everyone has seen - she has not seen it. Jurassic Park? Back to the Future? Indiana Jones? Die Hard? All of these she has now seen, because I showed them to her. She loved ever one of them. It’s like living with Tamera Chambers.
On that note, check out Tamera’s Never Seen on YouTube. In my opinion, no disrespect to the rest of the site, the only thing worth watching on Channel Awesome.
What in the glorious hell does this have to do with The Rock? Well, isn’t it obvious? She had never watched this movie before and she loved the ever-loving shit out of the damn thing. This movie is great; so, it should not be too surprising.
As I am typing this, I am listening to the commentary track on the disk. It is one of the old school LaserDisc style tracks. A bunch of people recorded separately and edited into a cohesive whole. I have always liked this style. It does cut down on some of the spontaneity, but it also means that there in no describing what’s on screen. It is damn good stuff.
You know what? I have touched on this before, but people get really precious with the Criterion Collection. People tend to get all in a tizzy when popular movies are released through the label. “I don’t want this mainstream shit next to my Tarkovsky, Godard and Bergman”. I will give you Armageddon. It is a movie I enjoy for its stupidity, but The Rock is different, though. It is the pinnacle of the 90s action movie. It was from that strange time period when you would get unique and interesting actors to show up and do their thing in a popcorn movie. That will probably never happen again. Sure James Wan can direct a Fast & Furious movie, but you still have you stereotypical action heroes as the leads. No Nic Cage being a weirdo. No Philip Seymour Hoffman chasing tornados. No John Cusack chasing after a mulleted Nic Cage and pervy Steve Buscemi. It was a wonderful time.
Stop being a pretentious jerk and give yourself over to this really cool movie. You wanna be a winner, right? We all know what winners do when they go home.
Time to start path to win back the title he never lost

2.5/5 ⭐️-Skyscraper is your typical Dwayne Johnson action affair, the script is basic and majority of the plot is predictable but his charm tends to help the movie get above the “Average” feel. The movie has many of the trademarks that most Die Hard “ rip offs” Iike Olympus Has Fallen, Sudden Impact ,Cliffhanger have. The movies has the typical cliche villains and the wife character who doesn’t do much but I have to save Neve Campbell did a bit more than I expected but not enough to justify a big name like her to be needed.
Director Rawson Marshall Thurber whos mostly known for comedies such as Were the Millers and Dodgeball who also previously collaborated with Dwayne in 2016s Central Intelligence does an admirable job in his first non comedy gig. He does need some work as not all the action scenes were in top notch work for the CGI was very noticeable in some scenes. It seems their working relationship will be continuing as they are already already set to work on their 3rd collaboration a original action movie called “Red Notice” in wish Dwayne will play a Interpol Agent who tracks down art thiefs, with Wonder Woman herself Gal Gadot as the female lead.
There isn’t much to be said about Dwayne’s performance as it’s his usual , he plays his normal bad ass lead who gets himself in crazy situations and comes out on top. The only difference being that his character has a prosthetic leg in this one which I guess kind of added for some layer in ridiculous action scenes. This movie is a cliche but easy to enjoy movie with a nice 90-95 minute run time that you can turn your brain off for and just enjoy without trying to hard to count its flaws although I did find his spring release “Rampage” to a more fun and better film#TheRock #DwayneJohnson #Skyscraper #Rampage #WWE #DoYouSmellWhatTheRockIsCooking #RawsonMarshallThurber #Dodgeball #RedNotice #CentralIntelligence #WereTheMillers #Baywatch #JumanjiWelcomeToTheJungle #FastAndTheFurious #DieHard #DieHardInChina #NeveCampbell #PartyOf5 #TheToweringInferno #LukeHobbs #HobbsAndShaw #JungleCruise #Ballers #SanAndreas

I don't know your tax bracket, nor is it my business.
I don't care to know you financial obligations.
But a handmade knife over a Chinese "cold steel" if you can afford it, you should.
You don't have to be a well traversed knife guy to see the difference, or notice it.
TL;DR "Too bad old man Hummel wants you alive. Cuz I sure take pleasure in gutting you boy."
