The film revolves around Will Sawyer (Dwayne Johnson), a former FBI agent who runs a company that assesses security for skyscrapers. Being the best in his business, he bags the project of evaluating the security for The Pearl – the world’s tallest, most-secured building.

Power-packed action and emotions
Skyscraper is 103 minutes of pure action, death-defying stunts, emotions and much more. It a thrilling ride that is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. What sets Skyscraper apart from other action films is the presence of the emotional quotient; also, there’s The Rock. Need we say more? Some of the action sequences look a tad bit exaggerated and unreal. However, The Rock does all the action scenes with conviction and makes us believe that anything is possible.
The Rock saves the day…again!
Dwayne Johnson who plays Will Sawyer, an amputee, is so much more than an ex FBI agent. He is a father and a husband who will go to any lengths to save his family; even if that means jumping off buildings and fighting fire. It is refreshing to see Neve Campbell as the badass mother who fights off bad men to protect her children.
