Will Sawyer (Dwayne Johnson) is a decorated soldier and former FBI Agent. He and his family live on the 96th floor of the newly built “Skyscraper” in Tokyo, Japan. Will’s security services are requested by the corporation that owns the “Skyscraper”. Little does Will know that he is being setup. There are people who are jealous of the success that has come from the building of the “Skyscraper” and there is an elaborate scheme to try and burn it down. The story unfolds from there…
“Skyscraper” would be fun if it had a solid agenda. The story is sketchy at best. Dwayne Johnson did what he could with what he was given. The best elements of the movie are the cinematography, Dwayne Johnson and “The Skyscraper”, a beautifully built 200+ floor building.
“Skyscraper” is best viewed on cable, DVD or Blue Ray.
This is a 2 Star Movie!!
