Skyscraper (12A)

Crime, Drama, Action

US action drama in which a man risks everything to save his family.

The critical consensus

The building may be taller than The Towering Inferno and the stakes may be higher than those faced by John McClane in Die Hard, but in comparison to both, Skyscraper is little more than a cinematic bungalow.

**(*)(*)(*)Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 10/07/2018

Even Dwayne Johnson can't save this disaster movie from descending into nonsense.

**(*)(*)(*)James Mottram, The List, 11/07/2018

The real mystery here is how the filmmakers managed to pay so much attention to special effects and spectacle and so little to plotting and characterisation.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 11/07/2018

Not even Johnson can stoke the flames of this damp squib of a film.

Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 13/07/2018

A preposterous mashup of Die Hard and The Towering Inferno makes for a perfect summer blockbuster.
