Skyscraper Shite


I have seldom seen an action film which is totally devoid of tension as Skyscraper ? It's truly abysmal. I only went because my sister loves Dwayne Johnson, who plays a one legged, humourless version of Bruce Willis' yippeekiay motherfucker hero from DieHard.

Irwin Allen way back in 1974 did it so much better

  1. If I watch a movie with Dwayne in it, it's because of a different actor or a great story despite his presence. Is it the muscles?

  5. What we thought when we saw the trailer? A 'B' version of "The Towering Inferno" meets "Diehard." Sounds like we hit the bulls eye.

  7. I didn't realise Irwin Allen was responsible for so much of what I have seen and enjoyed. Of course I won't rewatch THAT 1974 movie.

  11. It is hard to beat "The Towering Inferno"! I think I'll give "Skyscraper" a pass.
