Movie Review: SKYSCRAPER 'Perfect homage to Die Hard & 80’s Action Movies'

Dwayne Johnson Plays Will Sawyer a man who’s stuck in a tower trying to save his family from terrorist. Sound Familiar? Skyscraper is a perfect homage to Die Hard and 80’s Action Movies alike. With that being said this film couldn’t be coming out at a more perfect time. It’s the middle of the summer nothing huge coming out till the end of the month, but now we have this thrilling action film that just asks the audience to grab the biggest bucket of popcorn with tons of butter and salt that they can, then run straight into the theater to sit back relax and enjoy this film.

The film has some quite astonishing visuals that really work and make not only the fires flash out, but also the heights of the tower stand out. This ends up putting you on the edge of your seat the whole time even if the story can feel predictable and foreshadows lots of events that you can see coming from a mile away. Somehow the Director Rawson Marshall Thurber who also wrote the film found a way to still keep you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next within this burning skyscraper. He found a way to pay homage to Die Hard and other action films without it feeling like a ripoff.

May I also acclaim him for not only making the action scenes feel like they’re kicking my back to the 80’s, but also for making Neve Campbell not just the damsel in distress wife, but for making her a Kick-Ass Wife who is up to the challenge of doing the same thing that her Husband Will Sawyer (Johnson) is up to doing. The Film is cliche, and finds itself in that campy action film, but it knows what it is and plays off it very well. I had a blast watching this film and even though it's not the most perfect film I’ve watched this year and it definitely won’t be making my top ten this year, I can wholeheartedly recommend you seeing Skyscraper especially if you're into action films or just Love THE ROCK.

Grade: C+

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) On February 5th at 7:00 PM in Las Vegas.

You ever hear the one about the cop, the songbird, the psycho and the mafia princess? “Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)” is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it. When Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.

In the Warner Bros. Pictures film, Margot Robbie (“I, Tonya”) returns as Harley Quinn, alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead (“10 Cloverfield Lane,” TV’s “Fargo”) as Huntress; Jurnee Smollett-Bell (HBO’s “True Blood”) as Black Canary; Rosie Perez (“Fearless,” “Pitch Perfect 2”) as Renee M…
