    Yeah, but quality action movies require an element of believability.

    Not realism. Believability.

    Didn't he just do a earthquake skyscraper movie?? Perhaps it gave him the skyscraper fever and the only prescription is pushing the limits of skyscraper-related action.

    14 Oscars at least. It's about The Rock saving his family, from terrorists and a fire... In a fucking SKYSCRAPER! It scrapes the mother-fucking sky it's so huge! If my dick were a building right now, and was high on the same amount of cocaine, viagra and amphetamines I am, it would be this skyscraper. And The Rock would be fighting it to save his family. The Rock vs My Dick, WINNER TAKES BALLS!!!! Let's fucking do it!






    -the actual pitch of this script

    Alright.
    The Super bowl spot was bad. It made it look like the movie was literally about him climbing a skyscraper, and he is some sort of cyborg with a robotic leg.

    After seeing the trailer, it looks better than i originally thought.
    The metal leg is still stupid though. How does he run and jump on one damn leg? Why even write that into the script ?

    I wish Rock would do more realistic, gritty action movies. His early stuff like The Rundown and Walking Tall were great. Now, he just does a bunch of kid movies, goofy movies, and cheap summer movies.
    He needs to diversify his porfolio.
    Wutang!

    I watched it an hour ago, yeah sure it takes stuff from other films. But i really liked the movie. Plenty of movies do this anyway.

    It was a good action movie that accomplished what it set out to do. Crazy unreal situations and blow shit up.

    Awesome all around, i mean it's an action movie. 9/10.

    Not sure if it was an homage to...

    enter the dragon, during the mirrors scene, but i enjoyed it

    Thanks to the movie theater for having the sound a bit extra louder for this. Becuse there were a few little turds crying every once in a while. Glad they were mostly drowned out.

    I saw Sorry To Bother You. That was a weird retro movie.

    Anyone seen it? It was this or Skyscraper. Skyscraper had bad reviews so I took a chance with Sorry... It was creepy.

    Dude is just in it to be a celeb and rich, all his movies are shit because he doesn't give a fuck.

    Fair play to him but he will be quickly forgotten soon I think

    This movie is everything I expected and wanted out of a Dwayne Johnson disaster flick.

    I mean he jumped off a crane into a building that was on fire, held up a suspension bridge that was shattered by holding the cables and was just everything we love about him all rolled into a single movie.

    I tried watching ot a couple days ago, got about 30-40 minutes in and gave up
    I expected it to be terrible but it was just way too boring and dumb for even me and I love SyFy movies
    Its that bad!
    Worse than a SyFy movie
