Wikipedia Summary
“Former FBI agent and amputee Will Sawyer (Dwayne Johnson) lives in 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, who is the building’s head of security, 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.”

Honestly so many scenes that were just so unrealistic. Like one floor being on fire and they couldn’t put it out. But half the building on fire and it gors out in 30 sec.

Davey Gorre says:

Please rank high school musical

That other guy Not Lord Jack Pig says:

I like to compare Dwayne to Chris Pratt. They are arguably the two most popular faces in acting right now. Chris is in much more popular movies like Lego Movie, Marvel, Jurassic World, and he is really in special movies. Dwayne on the other hand, has just started throwing himself out there to the highest bidder. I swear if Dwayne was not in this movie it was be a straight to dvd movie! He just does random movies that people only pay attention to because he is in them, and I can’t imagine how much money he is making. That’s just me

Hassan Alamoudi says:

Do top 10 best tv show

Dazaheth Manzanares says:
