      Boring Movie, Mediocre 3D Transfer

      SPOILERS AT VERY BOTTOM. BLUF: I don’t recommend the movie based on both the movie script and quality of the Blu-Ray. The Setup: Screen: 120inch projector screen w/ Priper projector materials (ie not a wall) Visual: Epson 4000 Projector (Bright Cinema, Sharpness Enhance 5) Glasses: Epson 3D glasses Audio Reciever: Pioneer Elite SC-85 Speakers: Klipsch Reference Premier Series Speakers (2x RP-280F, 1x RP-450C, 4x RP-250S, 4x RP-150S, 1x 10inch Klipsch, 1x 12 inch Klipsch Sub) Player: XBONEX Room: 16x20 with audio dampening NO spoilers: Pros: The Rock is a great actor for this sort of movie and it seemed customized for him Neve Campbell was also great So-So: Audio quality not great, the things that should go boom sound flat in this film and the audio mix artists had trouble deciding at which volume certain materials should be at (I.e things burning en masse should roar but were quiet and sometimes when things like glass broke they forgot to include audio for that glass hitting the ground. SPOILERS BELOW: The movie takes place in Hong Kong and is not believable in the slightest, so immediately the suspension of disbelief is gone. It’s very made-for-Chinese audiences and it shows. It’s unfortunate because it is so heavy handed. The movie is very physically dark (I know - it’s at night - but it was terribly shot even in interior scenes.) The other main problem is the Plot. Without giving too much detail, the story’s main conflict is very unclear until the end of the second act which is far too late in my opinion. They give you so much information and back story on the Rock’s character and his life but you really don’t ever care about them. Finally his wife is supposed to not be tech savvy, but she’s in my generation and a doctor AND a former military memeber, AND a martial artist. There’s NO WAY IN HECK she finds restarting a phone to be difficult. The Rock is awesome be he can’t save this boring, bland, dark film. Maybe Redbox it...

      In spite of what the critics say, I really enjoyed this movie. It was auctioned packed and quite emotional at times. If you enjoyed Die Hard, this is basically the 2018 version. The 4k transfer and HDR looked great. Although it was a 2k DI it was razor sharp in most shots and grain free. The atmos mix also added a lot of immersion to the movie with plenty of overhead effects. I also appreciated the steelbooks design. My one problem being the photo on the back of the steelbook is not as sharp as the photo on the front.

      I am sure by now that you have heard that Skyscraper is a combination of both Die Hard and the Towering Inferno. It definitely is that, and yet it is a modern take on both films. The special effects are incredible. Visually, it feels as if you are right there during the action scenes. This film may not be as good as Die Hard, but it is still a fun action packed film. Both the video and audio are near reference quality and the supplements are short but good. The steelbook itself is beautiful. Very nice art work.

      EXCITING WITH GREAT 3D

      I have always loved disaster movies, and have all that are available on DVD or replaced them with blu-rays when available. This movie is very well put together and it seems to just fly by I was enjoying it so. The 3D is very good, except for a few scenes for instances in offices, ect..but when demand for 3D was needed, those scenes really stood out and some great pop-outs. I would recommend this, it's a great 2 hours of entertainment.

      Dwayne "The Rock' Johnson plays a security specialist hired to evaluate a building for insurance qualification. Unbeknownst to him someone has a devious agenda for the buildings owner. During the course of the film this agenda places his family in danger. He eventually saves his family and then the day. The identity of the men on the inside was quite easy to figure out. Other than that the movie is enjoyable.

      The effects, sound, and picture quality on this are all spot-on, and when viewed on my 75" 4K display, the upconverted images look clear colorful, and well-detailed. The 3D in this movie is solid, and provides an ample sense of depth. The audio utilizes all channels in heavy action scenes, encompassing the viewer within the action on-screen! LFE gets a nice workout with explosions.

      I loved this film. The Rock plays a disabled person with one leg and must fight a group of terrorists. Plus the film takes place in a super modern tallest made building in the world. The technology in the film is great as is the action. If you like the Rock, you will love this film. It's the kind of film you can watch over and over again.
