I am a huge fan of the Die Hard movies and have seen them more times than I can count. I love any type of action movie really so when the previews for Skyscraper started, I knew I'd go see it, especially since it starred Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
This movie was fast-paced, intense, edge-of-your-seat action with a soft side. Johnson plays a former FBI agent who runs a private security company. He's married with twins (around 7 or 8) and has a good life after having survived a horrific explosion ten years previously. When he gets the bid to test the security measures for the world's tallest building, he's naturally excited. What he doesn't know, though, is it's a set-up. From that point on, the action is intense.
There's fire, shootings, fights, rappelling off the side of a building, do-it-yourself surgery, and much, much more. You won't be bored. Though Johnson is used to the physically active roles, this one is unique in that he comes in with what he thinks is a disadvantage. Turns out, the disadvantage is something he could not have survived without.
This movie does have some strong language but not a whole lot of it. It does, on the other hand, have a boatload of violence. , Something to think about if you're planning on taking the kids. I'd definitely give it an A-, though. The minus is only because I wish there'd been a little more of a wrap-up at the end of the movie.
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
