Skyscraper 

 

The bad movies starring Dwayne Johnson are starting to pile up. Skyscraper is the latest movie we watched. I knew this movie was received poorly. I knew this movie had some controversy surrounding it. Real people with missing limbs that are actors were denied a role so we could get some bad acting from someone that some people consider a star. The acting in Skyscraper is horrible.

I was very curious about the story behind Skyscraper. A rich man builds the tallest building ever. He is close to opening the residential area in the building. He has a security expert (Fruity Pebbles) make sure everything is good. Some bad guys invade and set the building on fire. They steal the security tablet and hunt the rich man. Why? SPOILER ALERT! He has a drive with all of their bank accounts when they extorted money from him.

Skyscraper has fire, death, blood, violence, lack of attire, brief enticement to lust, bad language, and more. It felt like this movie was trying to capture the first Die Hard to me. There are so many parts of Skyscraper that make no sense. The main character gets his wife and son out of there with his daughter close by. It makes more sense to me to get all three out at once. Plot convenience is obviously why.

The writers for Skyscraper may have been connected to IT Crowd with the whole: "turn it off and on," concept. SPOILER ALERT! That concept saves the day near the end of the movie. Skyscraper is predictable to the letter. There were some here at Family Friendly Gaming that found Skyscraper to be boring. He did have a headache at the time so that may have had something to do with it.

The bonus content on the discs are Commentary with the director, Dwayne Johnson Embodying A Hero, Inspiration, Opposing Forces, Friends No More, Kids in Action, Pineapple Pitch, and more commentary. It takes one hour and forty-three minutes to watch Skyscraper. There are plenty of forced almost death incidents in Skyscraper. I doubt I will watch this movie again.
