Reviews: Skyscraper (2018)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • David Bax @ Battleship Pretension
    • Excerpt: As a go-for-broke, full-budget-on-the-screen action movie with a lead you can root for guilt-free, Skyscraper rises above.
  • Francisco Cangiano @ CineXpress [Spanish]
  • Andrea Chase @ KillerMovieReviews.com
    • Excerpt: A love letter to the low-tech reliability, magic even, of duct tape.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Skyscraper is simple but functional. Dwayne Johnson carries the film in a way that feels more vulnerable than his usual roles, and there are plenty of charm to be found in its throwback sensibilities.
  • Matt Donato @ Flickering Myth
    • Excerpt: Less Die Hard, more an action fan’s Cirque du Bro-lei with guns, lotsa explosions, and some serious birds-eye views that Rawson Marshall Thurber so casually peers down like we’re about to fall forward out of our seats.
  • [New] | Vadim Grigoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
  • Courtney Howard @ SassyMamaInLA.com
    • Excerpt: It’s an engaging, explosive thrill riot meant to be seen on the big screen – and it’ll induce many a palm to sweat.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ Kibs Reviews
    • Excerpt: Its greatest ambition is to thrill, and “Skyscraper” quite skillfully delivers on that count in spades.
  • Nguyen Le @ InSession Film
    • Excerpt: Remember to buckle the hell up when you go through The Pearl’s doors.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: Why not? Ill watch a one-legged Dwayne Johnson dangle off a burning building with Neve Campbell for 102 minutes. Sure, there’s more to ‘Skyscraper,’ but not much.
  • Jared Mobarak @ The Film Stage
    • Excerpt: The trajectory is more or less familiar with this fare’s usual inclusion of trite plot mirroring that simultaneously earns a smirk and groan in equal measure thanks to blatant visual cues, but the ride is wild enough to stay onboard.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
  • frank ochieng @ The Critical Movie Critics
    • Excerpt: As convincingly engaging and impish as Johnson can be in his many repetitive action-oriented thrillers (and comedies), he deserves a nasty piledriver (or perhaps a “people’s elbow”) for participating in this tensionless-filled slog of a popcorn movie. Indeed, the lumbering and lethargic Skyscraper needs its building inspection permit revoked.
  • Diego Salgado @ Guiadelocio [Spanish]
  • Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies [Indonesian]
    • Excerpt: Sure it is just another typical Dwayne-Johnson-being-Dwayne-Johnson action movie but gotta admit it has its seriously thrilling/gripping moments. And Neve Campbell! Hollywood… take her for more rounds, please!
