Skyscraper has such potential, fifty percent of which is squandered by its misunderstanding of how cinematic thrills should work (at least to my taste).

Leaden, formulaic.

Skyscraper might be a bit hairy for someone with a fear of heights. Otherwise, it's a predictable single-hero disaster event film.

'Scuse me while I diss the Skyscraper.

It stands out in absolutely nothing, but at least it is short enough so the public doesn't get bored. [Full Review in Spanish]

Dwayne Johnson is the rock of this shabby structure. He shoulders the responsibility of holding the screen on his own, but there is only so much you can do when situations are played on the loop.
February 11, 2019
Dour, frustrating, and missing the magic that Johnson requires to shine.

A '90's throwback goodiebag

Overall, the film is a mix of Towering Inferno and Die-Hard-just not as good as either of those flicks. I didn't expect a cinematic masterpiece, but unfortunately, this popcorn flick was a little too weighed down by its own ambition.

An off-the-wall ridiculous and often boring violation of the laws of nature and common sense.

John McClane called, he'd like his storyline back now.

In burning buildings, there's always time for a hug

It delivers a thrill or two, perhaps a chuckle, but you'll have forgotten three minutes after you leave the multiplex.

Skyscraper lacks basic logic in almost every way, and it relies on the height of the tower to provide suspense far too often.
November 6, 2018
Aside from the primary characteristics already mentioned, Skyscraper also feels so annoyingly comparable to a toothless Die Hard knockoff, only without the roguish or authentic suspense...
November 1, 2018
Big, dumb, get-the-job-done fun, Skyscraper is both a testament to The Rock's nigh-bottomless watchability and a litmus test for the depths of storytelling bankruptcy he's willing to participate in.

Like a lot of Johnson's second-tier vehicles, it feels a little bit like something that's supposed to look like a "grown-up" movie, but the target audience is really closer to 8 year-olds.
October 29, 2018
Finally there's an action blockbuster that extols the greatness of duct tape and the immense power of turning off a device and turning it back on.
October 17, 2018
This is a movie which prays the amount of twisted, flaming metal will cover the fact that none of the proceedings make even a lick of sense.
October 16, 2018
It's mindless action that barely makes any sense, but you get what you paid for.
