Walks a fine line between dumb fun and just dumb. Whichever side the viewer falls into is completely dependent on the individual.
"Cheesy and predictable"
Die Hard. King Kong. Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. The Towering Inferno. Skyscrapers have provided the backdrops for some of the best moments in film history. Does a movie that bears the name Skyscraper hold up to its predecessors?
"If this is Dwayne Johnson's Die Hard then I don't want to see his version of the rest of Bruce Willis' movies"
Here are 3 steps you should follow instead of seeing this movie:
1. Open the Youtube app on your mobile device
2. Search: "Mission Impossible Amazing Building Climbing Scene"
3. Watch this scene over and over for the hour and a half that you would otherwise be wasting your time watching Skyscraper
"A so-bad-it's-good instant classic"
There are so many scenes that were hilarious because of the unfortunate tone this movie tries to pull off. Watching the Rock hobble around on one leg in what's supposed to be a tense fist-fight scene is absolute cinematic gold. I did not hate this movie because I laughed too hard to not appreciate it.
