Lesson 122: Skyscraper – Where There’s Smoke… (Spoilers)

Jul 18, 2018 | Chad Riley, Eddie Villanueva, Movies, Podcasts, Spencer Williams, The Filmlosophers

The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva, Chad Riley and Spencer Williams, face the towering inferno and come out the other side for this week’s review of Skyscraper (2018). Starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Chin Han and Neve Campbell, the story centers on a private security contractor hired to certify the safety of the world’s tallest building, the fictional Pearl in Hong Kong, and its suitability to house new residents. Featuring numerous death-defying moments for Johnson’s character, the story pushes the boundaries of logic and challenges even the most gullible audience member’s ability to suspend disbelief.

A raging inferno, kidnapped loved ones, crime syndicates, wind turbines and henchmen – this movie does absolutely the most. We smelled what The Rock was cookin’ – and not even his trademark charisma was enough to hold our interest beyond the inciting incident.
