"This is stupid" is an actual line of dialog uttered by Dwayne Johnson in "Skyscraper," and it's the most damning statement in the whole film because it's both painfully accurate and self-aware. The intermittently entertaining yet too sporadically investing would-be blockbuster has moments of vertigo-inducing peril, especially if you're petrified of heights like myself, but it's too often labored for its own good.
The dumbest summer popcorn film can be rewarded to this ridiculous but frankly enjoyable (in the 'so bad it's almost good' way) film. No one was asking for a Die Hard 2.0 except for perhaps some producers with dollar signs in their eyes but the filmmakers have failed dramatically in that regard.
The big problem with Skyscraper isn’t the obvious Die Hard rip off. It’s just that it doesn’t have any sense of fun. It’s laborious to get through it, in part because it takes itself too seriously. Sprinkle a little humor, add some catchphrases, amp up the violence and voilá-- a B-movie done right. Instead we get a self involved film that isn’t particularly thrilling nor fun. But you know, duct tape, so there’s that.
"Film sonuna kadar heyecan içinde-aksiyon dolu, Hollywood’un en çok kazandıran ismi Dwayne Johnson ne kadar şirin" gibi cümleler kurmak isterdim ama maalesef inandırıcılıktan oldukça uzak, sonu itibariyle de tam bir hayal kırıklığı olan, kullanılabilecek her tür klişenin kullanıldığı, neden 3D çekildiğini de anlamakta zorlanacağanız bir film. Bu tür aksiyon filmleri sevenler beğenebilir sadece. 4/10
