Film Review: Skyscraper (Netflix)
You really have to suspend your disbelief for this one, but it’s worth it, it’s a good family action film from The Rock. Total nonsense, but enjoyable. 7.0 / 10.0
How to describe this movie? Homage to 1940s mystery cinema? Drug-fuelled nightmare. Just plain weird? All of those things. I’m sure it’s trendy in an emporer’s-new-clothes kind of way to say this is an awesome film and “not something the general film goer will appreciate”, but I think this is an indulgent turd. A very disappointing and disturbing 3.0/10.0.
Hugh Grant was really good, I was not expecting him to play a credible lowlife. Michelle Dockery was good, but I can only see her as Lady Mary, so it didn’t work for me (my fault). She was fantastic in Godless, so not sure why I wasn’t getting it here. Overall, a good film. A diamond geezer 7.5 monkeys ahhhht a...
A good film, not a great story. Visually stunning, a great demonstration of the film makers art, but it has some odd lead casting. To be fair, it is a also bit flat and/or clumsy in places, particularly with some scenery / lighting. I was expecting higher, but 7.5/10.0
