@skyscrapermovie #skyscraper - #DwayneJohnson as Will Sawyer, yet again, performs a character of a similar template in a different manner.
#Good:- Plenty heart-in-your-mouth moments, unfolding of the story once the buildup is set, Dwayne Johnson’s beastly performance.
#Bad:- Unconvincing twists & turns, defying the laws of science & physics – that’s not particularly bad if you’re someone who likes to grab a popcorn and not mind what’s happening how.
#MovieReview:- We saw Will #Sawyer (Dwayne Johnson) with his FBI Rescue Hostage Team rescuing a family hostage to a man in Minnesota. Cutting the flashback scene from 10 years ago we see how Will is no more with FBI and has his leg amputated. Will is in Hong Kong with his family where he has to attend a meeting with Zhao Long Ji (Chin Han). Zhao is an Asian financier who has built The Pearl – a skyscraper 500 feet (1,100 m) and 225 stories tall.Swayer is in charge of the security system at The Pearl for which he has to finish one final system check before Zhao could open The Pearl for residential occupants. Enters the men of Kores Botha, an international terrorist kingpin, who uses his control over the construction crew and try to manipulate Zhao to extort a huge chunk of money. In this process, the 96th floor of the skyscraper gets exposed to the flames causing fire on the whole level. Swayer’s family gets stuck above the 96th floor; it becomes impossible for them to get out until THE ROCK arrives in style.#RawsonMarshall Thurber has written a script keeping in Dwayne Johnson in mind.Yes, the action is logic defying, there are loopholes in the screenplay, flaws in the script but it is entertaining.There are enough moments to keep you glued throughout the movie. "I saw people shaking on their seats while watching" Effect played in Reality.Music plays a major role in a movie such as this and Steve does not disappoint at all.
#LastWord:- Skyscraper is yet another entertaining offering from Dwayne Johnson. He climbs up the tower of my expectations & entertains throughout the film. It’s always good to get such enjoyable stuff from #Hollywood in times when everyone wants to be a superhero. - #KARANMRV
