Plot:
Will Sawyer (Dwayne Johnson) used to work for the FBI and he is a veteran, but now he leads a calmer life, assessing the security of skyscrapers. His last assignment brought him, his wife Sarah (Neve Campbell) and their children( McKenna Roberts, Noah Cottrell) to Hongkong to inspect the world’s tallest building – The Pearl. A passion project of Zhao Long Ji (Chin Han), the building boasts everything you could possibly hope for on a staggering 225 floors. But just as Sawyer is about to clear the building, fire breaks out. Sawyer’s family is trapped inside and Sawyer himself is blamed. He now only has a very limited time to save them, clear his own name and find out who is trying to gain from the fire.

Skyscraper keeps its promises, as I have come to expect from Dwayne Johnson movies: that is, it’s a fun action movie with a decent amount of explosions and quips that sets out to entertain and it does.
