Die HopFilm Review: SKYSCRAPER
Ok, so, um... As DIE HARD is my all-time favourite Christmas movie, it's nice to see it being remade - for kids... and those with single legs... and bald people... and, um... Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's nice isn't he? Can't wait for him to be President... um... Hey, loved his song in MOANA, right?
So, ok... It. Was. Fun. But if you, like me groaned with pain through the awfulness of RAMPAGE and its lack of self-aware humour, then get ready to grrrrrrrrrrooooooaaaaaaan again. Loudly.
The Rock. One legged. A skyscraper. Some generic Euro-baddies. Explosions. Fights. Happy resolution.
Seriously, I've seen DIE HARD like 15 times and yet it still manages to feel fresher, and far, far more fun than, um TALLBUILDINGER.
Is it just me or are all these big budget kid-friendly "The Rock" action blockbuster movies just blurring into one now??? ;)
Alternative titles that occured to me as I tried not to doze off:
DIE HOP: DIE HOPPIER
DIE HOP: HOP HARD WITH A VEGAN
Fans of RAMPAGE will love. Fans of Michael Bay style TRANSFORMERS 2 through 6 will love. Dwayne fans will love. Um... Me? I should have taken a sleeping bag or a book. And I say that as someone who has sat through and had fun with pretty much all the last three FAST & FURIOUSLY BALDING cartoons... I mean movies...
