Global icon Dwayne Johnson leads the cast of Legendary’s Skyscraper as former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Sawyer, who now assesses security for skyscrapers. On assignment in China he finds the tallest, safest building in the world suddenly ablaze, and he’s been framed for it. A wanted man on the run, Will must find those responsible, clear his name and somehow rescue his family who is trapped inside the building...above the fire line.
From the manufacturer
Forced to rely on his training under the most extreme circumstances, and with his loved ones caught in the middle, Will faces unimaginable obstacles—both to clear his name and to save the lives of those he holds closest…hundreds of stories above the ground.
Dr. Sarah Sawyer
A former naval surgeon, Sarah is the bedrock of the family. With her strength and fighting instincts, she performs extraordinary feats to protect her children when things go awry.
Zhao Long Ji
Zhao is a very enigmatic figure. He’s a visionary and iconoclast, a technical genius constantly pushing the limits of human endeavour. But he grew up in a poor ﬁshing village and had a complex relationship with his father, from whom Zhao was constantly seeking affirmation.
Kores Botha is a mercenary on a mission to ferret out Zhao from his den in the sky. Unbeknownst to anyone else, Zhao has something that Botha wants badly enough to kill for.

I'm putting this review here because, after extensive searching I can't find the right place to add my packaging feedback and photo. So here it goes instead.
What has Amazon done? It has done away with the very good cardboard packets that DVDs/Blu-rays/Cds used to come in. They were great. Open the packet, retrieve your goods and put it into recycling. Couldn't be simpler!
Now, they seem to have changed to this aweful sealed bubblewrap type of packet that needs either really strong upper body strength or a pair of scissors to open. But once you open your packet and have got the goods out, the only place it can go afterwards is in the main rubbish bin and latterly into landfill. How ridiculous is that?
Not good Amazon, not good. Very much a thumbs down from me on this front.
I'd happily pay the same amount to never see it again.
Bald heads, sweaty tits, orange, guns (oh so many guns), cliche upon cliche, BANGS!, heroics, English bad guy (yawn).
But that's a perfect description for this film AND America at the moment so maybe it's a perfect match.
Avoid. There are much better films out there.
The film tells of how former F.B.I agent Will Sawyer (Dwayne Johnson) loses his leg during a rescue mission.
Ten years later we find him working as a security adviser for Skyscrapers in Hong Kong one of which is the newly constructed purpose built 225 storey tower known as ''The Pearl''
When a criminal gang set a fire on the 96th floor with the intent of stealing from the buildings owner Will becomes the number one suspect, however when he realises that his wife and two children are in the building on a floor above the fire he has to mount an unlikely rescue attempt, and becomes pursued by the Hong Kong police as he races toward the burning tower.
The race is on, there will be many obstacles to overcome along the way including the heavily armed criminal gang.
Though somewhat far-fetched the film is without question ~ pure entertainment ~ ....it's an edge of your seat thrill-ride, action-packed with stunning visual effects....................i'd say, if you are looking for an exciting watch ~ give it a go.
No prizes for guessing how things go – but its rollicking entertainment on the way, and manages through sheer force of charisma on Johnson’s part to overcome its ludicrosity to become almost believable – believable enough to have me puling my feet over the cinema chair biting my fingernails in suspense at some of the more vertiginous activities. It’s a mixture of 70’s Towering Inferno disaster movie, 80’s muscle-bound action hero against machine gun-toting bad guys, and 90’s Die-Hard style shenanigans. If the bad guys seem somewhat one-note, and nobody will win any Oscars, the most effective set pieces are the escaping from a burning building pieces, though the film sets itself up more as an action movie a la Die Hard. Special effects are mostly seamless though one leap of faith requires a leap of your imagination to match. Frankly the special effect here is Johnson himself, who I’m beginning to think can do just about anything. It’s not just Johnson that works here – I enjoyed seeing Neve Campbell in a role that gave her an opportunity to deal with some baddies to bruising effect. There was even a cheer in the cinema viewing I was in at one of her ‘moments’.
I still have a smile on my face – I’m unlikely to rush out and buy the disc, but this would be an enjoyable guilty pleasure to catch on a plane or on TV.. but my recommendation is to leave the brain at home, head to the cinema and see this on the big screen for the full effect – and watch your smile turn into a grin as you polish off your popcorn. I’m not pretending it’s going to be a classic – but that won’t stop you enjoying it.
