About this Film


ODEON says...
Will Ford used to lead a hostage rescue team, but now he’s assessing the security of the tallest, safest ‘Skyscraper’ in the world… or so he thinks. 

He finds the supposedly safe building ablaze, and he’s been framed for starting the fire. Now, he’s in a race against time to clear his name, catch the real culprits – and rescue his family from the building, where they’re trapped above the fire line. 

Dwayne Johnson takes on a burning ‘Skyscraper’ in this riveting action thriller from the director of ‘Central Intelligence’.

This film is a very good yarn. Keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout and has some really good special effects. An updated "Towering Inferno" that does not get too cheesy. Go and see it!!

Excellent from start to finish. Great cast, great plot, loved it so much. Full of action, different storyline from anything else. Brilliant

Very grim,

Reviewer: DarkSkiesDate: 2018-07-23

and very dark. Very tense. Not the usual Rock fare and not as good as his usual films.

Great Storyline

Reviewer: CheetaraDate: 2018-07-20

Not the usual Dwayne Johnson film, great storyline and action from start to finish.
