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.

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…
