What Is Good
- Action scenes
- The Rock
What Is Bad
- Die Hard shades
- Dragging at portions
- Weak Villains
Music by Steve Jablonsky sets the tempo for a pacy and racy action entertainer, as the background score perfectly elevates the thrilling sequences, while cinematography by Robert Elswit captures the skyscraper and the threat it faces in all its glory, with perfect shots of Dwayne Johnson smashing the baddies in his very own inimitable style. After making several entertainers like Central Intelligence, director Rawson Marshall Thurber is back with an action entertainer, and this time around, he has relied totally on the action abilities of Dwayne Johnson rather than on coming up with a strong script.
Having chosen a plot unintentionally resembling flicks like Die Hard and The Towering Inferno, Rawson struggles to keep the audience engaged, as every sequence is predictable and cliched, with Dwayne Johnson's onscreen charisma and impeccable and mighty personality which makes him smashing goons believable despite the physical challenge associated with his character. However, even the Rock could not make the audience do anything but have a loud laughter for the ridiculously shot skyscraper jump sequence which almost sums up the result of this otherwise decent popcorn entertainer. All said Rock's stunts and his macho persona rising to the occasion is the only saving grace of Skyscraper.
