Skyscraper is a movie featuring Dwayne Johnson as Will Sawyer, Neve Campbell as Sarah Sawyer, Chin Han as Zhao Long Ji, and Roland Mølten as Kores Botha. This was a thriller to watch. The plot is about Zhao Long Ji’s multi-billion dollar skyscraper nicknamed the pearl. It is called the pearl because of the pearl near the top of the structure. Inside of the pearl are these weird mirror like objects but they are cool.

    Dwayne Johnson’s character Will Sawyer is a security specialist and former FBI agent as well as a war veteran. But when things went wrong on a dark operation, he was severely injured, that is how he met Sarah his soon to be wife. Sarah Sawyer is a doctor and is trained in combat due to naval experience. The Sawyers have two children Georgia and Noah. Zhao Long Ji is a reclusive trillionaire and only trusts his inner circle. Zhao has let the Sawyers into the building upper half which is the residential region of the building (which has not opened yet).

    This brings in Kores Botha who will do anything to get Zhao Long Ji’s list of arms dealers and buyers and their information. In Kores Botha’s plan, the Sawyer’s apartment will be completely destroyed. So to spare the Sawyers’ life, they give them midnight tickets to the Panda Zoo. But, when Noah gets sick at the zoo, they come home early. The reason they went to the zoo was that a family friend gave them tickets to the midnight feeding of the pandas.

    The man that gave them the tickets was Will’s old FBI friend who was in the operation gone wrong with Will. But, now Ben (the family friend of the Sawyers played by Pablo Schreiber) has turned. He is now working for none other than Kores Botha. Botha has planned his escape by securing a local area that will be a construction site soon so it will be a clear area to land. how they are getting there is via parachute from the top floor.

    The fire starts and the family is inside clueless. One thing though Will Sawyer is not there; because he had clearance to the security on his tablet, he is now a target of Botha. To get into the fire prevention program, Botha uses the stolen tablet to get into all the security procedures including the sprinklers and the vents. So by shutting off the sprinklers and opening the vents from floor 96 to the highest level in the building floor 225 this would allow the fire to spread to  Ji’s penthouse.

    While being hunted down by the police (they thought Sawyer had been in on the fire,) Sarah calls and she is scared but hides it well. She calls Will via facetime and Will tells them to go as far up as possible. Then Will is spotted by the police. Trying to get into the building, he is faced with another challenge, the police are in front of the building and Sawyer sees no way to get in so he climbs a tower crane to the top where he rotates the ledge and pushes it all the way out. He then realizes he will only get there if he jumps. He uses the hook on the crane and busts a window. He goes to the start of the ledge when he starts his run then he jumps.

    Now I’m not going to tell you if he makes it or not. If you want to find out, you should go to your local theatre (if the movie is still showing) and watch the movie. This was one of the best movies for action. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rank this movie a 9.5 out of 10. Overall, if you are into action, you should see the movie.
