Dwayne Johnson stars as the most badass amputee since Charlize Theron in Mad Max: Fury Road, in the movie mashup you never knew you wanted (but trust me, you do). Skyscraper is Die Hard meets The Towering Inferno (High Hard, if you will), and it’s pretty much everything you could want from a big, dumb, muscle-bound summer action flick. Johnson plays Will Sawyer, a security specialist whose wife and kids happen to be inside the world’s tallest building after shady, sneering Euro-accented villains set fire to it as part of a needlessly complicated heist. Using his in-depth knowledge of the building and so much duct tape you start to wonder whether this is a feature-length advert for the stuff, Will sets out to save his family. Not surprisingly, this involves him dangling repeatedly from the side of the building (once by his prosthetic leg). It’s gloriously silly escapism and I enjoyed it immensely.
