Perfectly decent.

A perfectly fine action movie.
February 15, 2020
Pushes the whole "Dwayne Johnson is strong" thing to the limit, but who the hell cares when there's such unbridled joy to be had whilst viewing so
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

It's the Die Hard summer blockbuster you'd expect, but not drawn out for the sake of more explosions. Don't expect any awards for this plot line.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

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.

[Dwayne] Johnson's acting in "Skyscraper" isn't going to win any Oscars. But it's still a pleasant change from the action movie default.

Only in a marketplace crowded with superhero movies and franchise fare could a movie about The Rock saving his family from a giant building on fire feel like a breath of fresh air.

Skyscraper is an unabashed genre film, perfect for filmgoers looking for spectacle over the story...even if it demands it's audiences to overlook one too many flaws.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 16, 2019
Not so much a story as the Rock's upper body workout with explosions CGI'd behind him.
March 29, 2019
All this is nonsense on stilts, of course, but although the movie never reaches Die Hard's dizzy heights, Johnson's towering charm will keep you dangling.

March 25, 2019
This is essentially a Die Hard wannabe flick that lacks depth, but attempts to get by using the global appeal of its leading man, Johnson.

Surprisingly entertaining and fun. [Full review in Spanish]

A cereal box script with great stunts. Even when absurd, the movie manages to surpass itself as commercial blabber and make us enjoy it. [Full review in Spanish]

February 18, 2019
Yes, it's ridiculous. Yes, it's full of impossible nonsense. And Yes, I loved just about every physics defying second of it.

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.

Skyscraper is undeniably stupid, but it works because it's not afraid to be stupid.
Full Review | Original Score: 8.5/10
November 24, 2018
There's a lot of fun to be had in this big-budget action thriller that never takes itself too seriously.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.0/4
November 18, 2018
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.)

Skyscraper is a throwback to adrenaline-fueled action blockbusters
November 5, 2018
Infinitely re-watchable and a lighthearted spectacle of amusingly terrifying heights, Skyscraper defines the notion of a film that's far better than it has any right to be.
