Goofs

When Sawyer has a standoff with Hong Kong police, two grade-separated (elevated) train lines are plainly visible in the background. Since the demolition of the Kowloon Station in 1978, Hong Kong has no above-ground rail in or anywhere near the Kowloon area where the fictional Pearl Tower is situated, and no elevated rail at all. The city's MTR rail system is almost entirely underground, and its only above-ground portions -- an Airport Express train and a dedicated line to Hong Kong Disneyland -- are at grade (ground-level) and on the outskirts of the city (whereas Kowloon is near its center).

No Heroes?
15 August 2018 | by r grothSee all my reviews

Usually I like movies with "The Rock" - but this is lame. It has some good ideas but it is not thrilling. Noticeable: The biggist tower of Hongkong is burning and I saw no single fireman in the whole movie. That's Hollywood.
