Yeah, but quality action movies require an element of believability.
Not realism. Believability.
The rock is overexposed
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
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.
Maybe the skyscraper is crashing down. Didya stop to think about that?
Faster is what Jack Reacher should have been.
I understand rock has this wholesome family image now
But damnit...the people demand more dark roles
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.
That Rock was way better. He's a jabroni now.
Yeah, I watched it as well
It's not bad, kinda cheesy, but solid B action movie
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
I watched this twice actually lol. As soon as it came out, I streamed it online. Then a guy invited me out to watch it at the theatre.
God the rock is so fucking hot omg
I love how you don't break character of being a woman by having horrible taste in entertainment, dude.
