Too competent to be a funny trainwreck, too cynically constructed to be emotionally involving, Skyscraper is infuriatingly impossible to talk about. It's like trying to describe the taste of steamed rice.
In a lot of ways, "Skyscraper" epitomizes the modern Hollywood summer blockbuster. It is huge and dumb and winkingly semi-serious, driven by an eminently watchable star doing ridiculous things for ridiculous reasons.
A skyscraper caper that gives an occasional humorous nod to its craziness without being too knowing; this is a straight-up blockbuster to enjoy without having to feel clever at the same time. (I felt many things watching it but clever wasn't one of them.)
