Skyscraper 1996 ½

Tesco-Value remake of Die Hard with Anna Nicole-Smith as a kung fu kicking helicopter pilot stopping a group of terrorists from stealing a super weapon from a sparsely populated ...um... skyscraper.

There's very little action, and what there is is clearly an attempt to recreate scenes from Die Hard on a pocket money budget: there's a window cleaner rig instead of a firehose, a waste bin fire instead of explosives in a lift shaft and so on.

Nicole-Smith is utterly dreadful, possibly the worst acting performance I have ever seen, and of course she gets a gratuitous shower scene, a gratuitous sex scene, and, rather less tastefully, a gratuitous rape scene.

It's so bad it can't even decide how many floors the building has.
