Skyscraper – 2018 Movie – Starring Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson

Skyscraper is a 2018 American action film written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber and starring Dwayne Johnson, Neve Campbell, Chin Han, Roland Møller, Noah Taylor, Byron Mann, Pablo Schreiber, and Hannah Quinlivan. The story follows a former FBI agent who must rescue his family from a newly built skyscraper–the tallest in the world–after it is taken over by terrorists and set on fire. The first non-comedy of Thurber’s career, it also marks his second collaboration with Johnson following Central Intelligence (2016).

Filming began in September 2017 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It was released in the United States by Universal Pictures on July 13, 2018, in 2D and 3D. The film received mixed reviews from critics, who praised Johnson’s performance but criticized the clichéd script for being too similar to Die Hard and The Towering Inferno.

Synopsis

Former FBI agent and amputee Will Sawyer is tasked with inspecting the tallest and “safest” skyscraper in Hong Kong with his family. The skyscraper itself, known as “The Pearl,” houses several floors that function as their own society, and despite the risks highlighted by Sawyer, his bosses insist that it is impenetrable. True to Sawyer’s belief, the building comes under attack by terrorists who set the building ablaze, forcing Sawyer to take action. Matters are complicated further when he finds himself framed for the attack, and his family trapped above the resulting fire line.
