Skyscraper: Amazon Prime/ iTunes Release
Skyscraper received mixed reviews from critics. Rotten Tomatoes gave it an approval rating of 46% based on 200 reviews, with an average rating of 5.1/10. Metacritic gave it a 51 out of 100 scores, based on 42 critics. Skyscraper IMO naz nothing new to offer, it is the same old script with new additions here and there. It reminds one too much of action jammed movies like for example the Inferno etc. It is also one of those cliched movies where a male actor has to battle the odds and save the day.
